- Early Years
Hosted by Jarvis Cocker (who can forget his 'motivational talk' or his hula hoop dancing?), this was possibly the slickest NME Awards so far.
There was no one act who swept the board, but Muse, Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian all nabbed awards. Courtney Love opened the show with her new version of Hole, Paul Weller picked up a Godlike Genius Award and Matt Helders turned up looking like a TV cop from the 1970's, whilst The Big Pink and Lily Allen battled it out with Biffy Clyro and Marina Diamandis for best duet of the evening honours.
