The late, great star wins Best R&B Act - and there's also good news for The Charlatans and Missy Elliott...

NME CARLING AWARDS PAYS TRIBUTE TO AALIYAH
THE
CHARLATANS[/url], LOSTPROPHETS, MISSY
ELLIOTT[/url] and AALIYAH are the latest start to have won NME CARLING AWARDS this
afternoon (February 25).

The ceremony is now halfway through at
London's
Planit Arches, presented by Zane Lowe. The
Charlatans[/url] have walked off with the NME Carling
Award for 'Best Radio 1 Evening Session',
presented by Steve Lamacq.

'Best Metal Act'
has been won by NME Carling
Awards Tour stars Lostprophets, beating off other nominees Linkin Park, System
Of A Down, Andrew WK and
Slipknot, while Missy
Elliott[/url] deservedly won 'Best Hip-Hop / Rap
Act' ahead of Eminem[/url],
OutKast and Bubba Sparxxx. Missy[/url]
couldn't make it to the awards in person, so UK garage stars Oxide &
Neutrino picked up the award on her behalf.

Late R&B star Aaliyah has also won an NME Carling Award, six months after her
tragic death in a plane crash. She was posthumously awarded 'Best
R&B / Soul Act', which was picked up by Mis-Teeq[/url].
A moving video tribute to the tragic star was also played.

The NME
Carling Awards continue, and
NME.COM will bring you more results as they are announced
throughout the afternoon.
