Pete Doherty was joined onstage by his girlfriend Kate Moss tonight (February 18) as Babyshambles performed a memorable Shockwaves NME Awards Show.

The model briefly teamed up with Doherty for a rendition of the 'Down In Albion' track 'La Belle et La Bête' at Brixton Academy.

It was an eventful 75-minute set, which also saw the Babyshambles frontman join forces with his friend Wolfman for their chart hit 'For Lovers'.

Before Doherty launched into the track, he joked: "We have got to thank Miss Moss."

Kicking off the show with crowd favourite 'Pipedown', the gig got off to a difficult start when three songs in, the band were forced to stop because of crowd problems.

Doherty asked the audience to take a step back and when they failed to do so, Babyshambles walked offstage for a brief period.

Eventually order was restored after five minutes and the band continued to pepper their set with new tracks including 'Delivery' as well as rousing versions of hit single 'Killamangiro', The Libertines' classic 'Time For Heroes' and 'The Blinding EP' track 'Beg, Steal Or Borrow'.

During the peformance two Queens Park Rangers flags were thrown onstage, one of which Doherty lifted in the air and later wrapped himself in.

The band ended the show with a roof-raising version of 'Fuck Forever'.

Speaking before their performance, drummer Adam Ficek told NME.COM: "We're really looking forward to the gig and playing some new songs. Brixton is always a good place to come back to and I think its a cosier venue than most places in London. The rest of the bands are good too so it should be a right old party tonight."

Earlier Little Man Tate warmed the crowd up with a short set which included hit single 'Sexy In Latin' while further support came from I Was A Cub Scout and My Device.

The Shockwaves NME Awards 2007 shows continue tomorrow (February 19) with Amy Winehouse at the Astoria.
