Behind the scenes at the banging VO5 NME Awards after-parties

Toniiiiiiight I'm a rock'n'roll star

Well, the VO5 NME Awards has come and gone, and the O2 Brixton Academy will never be the same again. Skepta and Stefflon Don performed their bizarre yet brilliant Simpsons-referencing ‘My Ding-A-Ling’ and Big Narstie was the most relentlessly hilarious man in the backstage area, at one point accidentally referring to rapper Loyle Carner – who won Best British Solo Artist supported by VO5 – as “Lyle Corner”. Liam Gallagher, recipient of the Godlike Genius award, belted out Oasis bangers and solo material in a barnstorming set that proved, without a shadow of a doubt, that no-one else could have taken the accolade this year.

Most of the stars hit one of two raging after-parties, one at The Cuckoo Club in the West End and another at swanky central London institution The Ivy. Let’s peer behind the velvet rope and see what everyone got up to, shall we?
