VO5 NME Awards 2017 – see the full winners’ list

Christine & The Queens, Biffy Clyro, Wiley, Skepta and more take home NME gold

The VO5 NME Awards 2017 hit the O2 Academy Brixton tonight (Wednesday February 15), as music’s finest were awarded for a stellar year. Check out the full list of winners below.

The true heroes of the night were Pet Shop Boys who took home the Godlike Genius Award.

Chris Lowe and Neil Tennant were introduced on stage by Johnny Marr, who was given the honour himself in 2013. Marr said: “The winners of this award have changed pop music, over three decades, with hit after hit after hit. They brought romance, glamour, style, high art to the wonderful thing that is pop music.”

Accepting the award, Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant said: “Our career has been such a huge collaboration with producers, programmers, remixers and I would just like to thank every one of them – and accept this on behalf on electronic music, dance music and shiny pop music. Thank you very much.”

Accepting the award for Best Live Band, The 1975’s Matt Healy said: “Thank you. Stop talking. Listen. This our second NME Award. The first time we were the shittest band. Now it’s for being good, so I don’t know what that proves. I don’t think it proves anything, I think it proves that…hey listen Mike (Williams) came out this evening and he said if you’re an artist, we have a duty to make pop music didactic.

“I know this is unfashionable and boring and no-one really gives a fuck but everything is fucked. And if your music isn’t purposefully informative, then there’s no point to it. So let’s make sure that we do that. Thank you.”
