IT IS one of the biggest nights in the music industry, so it’s no surprise the stars love to party and celebrate.
And at last night’s NME Awards they did just that as they partied after attending the party at London’s Brixton Academy.
Lottie Moss, who recently returned from rehab, looked stunning in a PVC dress as she met friends.
Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock enjoyed a night off from her twin babies, while Ellie Goulding also had a child-free night.
Presenting the award for Best Podcast, the singer nervously read her notes on her phone before jokingly adding, “I did a podcast and it was rubbish.”
Sam Fender and Griff were the night’s big winners, each winning two awards.
The annual ceremony was hosted this year by actress and comedian Daisy May Cooper and rapper-host Lady Leshurr.
North Shields rockers Fender, who opened the show with a passionate performance, won the awards for Best Album by a British Artist and Best Album in the World for his critically acclaimed sophomore effort Seventeen Going Under.
As he took the stage to collect his award, he swore at the crowd and joked, “We didn’t even know we were nominated until two seconds ago.”
Griff, meanwhile, scooped the NME Radar Award, telling the audience, “I consider it a privilege to be able to do this every day.”
She later returned to the stage alongside Norwegian singer Sigrid to accept the Best Collaboration award for their track Head On Fire.
American star Halsey accepted this year’s innovation award with a pre-recorded message.
“NME, thank you for this year’s innovation award,” she said. “This is the coolest award I’ve ever received in my life. She means the world to me.”
Irish post-punk band Fontaines DC won the Best Band In The World award and lead singer Grian Chatten took the stage and joked, “We’re going to party like number 10 tonight.”
Rapper Berwyn was awarded Best New Act From Britain and tricked his mum into accepting the award after admitting he hadn’t prepared a speech.
Pop star Mabel presented the Icon Award to her mother, Swedish singer Neneh Cherry.
In her acceptance speech, Neneh said: “The fact is none of this would have actually happened without the holy of holies of my family, my extended family – you know who you are and all the amazing visionaries I’ve dreamed up and all the new visionaries who give me life.
“You know what they say, it takes a whole village!”
Liam wins big
Music Moment of the Year went to former Oasis star Liam Gallagher for his free concert for NHS workers, while Best Song In The World went to Lorde for Solar Power.
Chvrches and The Cure frontman Robert Smith’s How Not To Drown was crowned best song by a UK artist before both acts took the stage to perform together.
Rina Sawayama won Best Live Act, while sister festivals Reading and Leeds were named Best Festival in the UK.
FKA Twigs received the previously announced award for “Godlike Genius” and delivered a euphoric performance with what appeared to be body-length wings.
Other winners of the night were Wolf Alice for Best Festival Headliner and Bring Me The Horizon for Best Band from the UK.
