NME Awards 2010...possibly the best ever?
I love everything about NME and the annual awards show is always a treat to watch...but this years one (the first of this decade) was brilliant telly. I would have to say that this years one was certainly up there as the best. You had Jarvis Cocker presenting, The Specials recieving outstanding contribution and Paul Weller awarded the godlike genious award. When you thought that it just cant get any better than that, you then had Kasabian peforming with Noel Fielding being "Vlad" parading around in comical style, The Specials also peforming ^^, Biffy then The Big Pink...then Hole ¬ ¬. I loved seeing cringe herself Lady GaGa awarded best&worst dressed, creased like, then JLS for worst band (BLOODY CLASS!!) then Jonas Brothers again! awarded the worst album second year in a row. For the Phillip Hall Radar Award i congrat The Drums for achieving the award, they are a brilliant band...give "let's go surfing" a listen ^^
Unlike the bloody Brits i did feel that all of the NME awards went to those who truelly deserved it and unlike the bloody Brits it was just so entertaining. The brits was truelly a fail (it always is) and thank fuck we have NME, and NME delivering such a good telly program.
Overall it was sheer quality, loved every min of it...what a music award show should be :)
