2005

It's a big affair this time round, with a red carpet and everything! The starry likes of Dita Von Teese, Juliette Lewis and ,erm, Dick And Dom join in the merriment. Although there's an early crisis when Shirley Manson and Michael Eavis both rock up in the exact same white suit. Sack the stylist etc...

Winners include Franz Ferdinand, Muse, Kaiser Chiefs and The Killers. Plus Noel Gallagher suggests that Oasis' next album will be called 'The Ear Has No Memory'. Imagine! Meanwhile, New Order pick up their Godlike Genius Award.
