Here it is then, the entire ceremony from the O2 Academy Brixton last week in bitesize video format.
Part One sees My Chemical Romance open the show in balaclavas before Juliette Lewis and Miles Kane present Biffy Clyro with the Best Live Band award.
Part Two includes a performance from Hurts, host Angelos Epithemiou having a chinwag with Dave Grohl, and Laura Marling picking up Best Solo Artist.
PJ Harvey owns Part Three, putting in a mesmerising performance, while Alexa Chung interviews Bobby Gillespie backstage.
In Part Four, Muse pick up Best British Band and drunkenly thank the fans. They also reveal they've been swapping farming tips with Michael Eavis before various celebs from Paul McCartney to Jack Black talk about Godlike Genius Dave Grohl.
And the fifth and final part sees Roger Daltrey give Dave Grohl the Godlike Genius award, Mr Grohl reminisce about his first time at the O2 Academy Brixton and dedicate his statue to Kurt Cobain, and play a massive set that includes new single 'Rope', 'All My Life' and an extended version of 'My Hero' during which Dave climbs onto the nearest table to finish the track.
