Griff wins NME Radar Award at the BandLab NME Awards 2022

Presented by her ‘Head On Fire’ collaborator Sigrid

Griff has picked up the NME Radar Award at the BandLab NME Awards 2022.

The award was presented by Griff’s ‘Head On Fire’ collaborator Sigrid, who stopped Griff after the pair’s performance on the night, declaring: “I’ve got one more thing for you” before running to retrieve the trophy.

“I count it as a privilege that every day I get to do this,” Griff said upon receiving the award.

Griff was presented her trophy just after she and Sigrid performed their collaborative single ‘Head On Fire’ at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. The song is also nominated for Best Collaboration alongside Baby Keem and Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay and BTS, FKA Twigs and The Weeknd, and Rina Sawayama and Elton John.
