Manchester band enjoy ‘Wonderful Life’ at ceremony
The Manchester duo performed the song as a full band and were joined by a troupe of black-clad ballerinas for the performance.
Singer Theo Hutchcraft got into the noir-ish spirit, donning sunglasses to accompany his leather gloves and black coat for the show.
The band are hoping that it won’t be their first foray onstage tonight – Hurts are nominated in the Best New Band category, where they face competition from Beady Eye, Everything Everything, The Drums and Two Door Cinema Club.
Hutchcraft is also in contention for the award for Best Band Blog Or Twitter for his tweeting action.
