Held at London’s iconic O2 Academy in Brixton on February 14, the VO5 NME Awards 2018 will celebrate the best music of the past year. Among the many winners and performances on the night, Liam Gallagher will be closing the ceremony as this year’s recipient of the coveted Godlike Genius Award.
Liam will be joining previous winners of the Godlike Genius Award, including The Cure, Manic Street Preachers, Coldplay, Paul Weller, Dave Grohl, Johnny Marr and many more.
“Every once in a while you’re faced with a decision that you might call a total no-brainer,” said NME editor-in-chief Mike Williams. “Giving Liam Gallagher the 2018 Godlike Genius award falls into that category.
“Through his history, the tunes, the swagger and the sense of humour, Liam is one of the most iconic rock stars of all time. He’s a frontman who knows the job description – look cool, belt it out, be totally Godlike – and I can’t wait to see him take his rightful place on the throne in Brixton in February”
Here’s what Liam had to say about the whole thing: “I wanna thank the NME for their Godlike Genius award. It’s about f**king time as far as I’m concerned.”
This is just the tip of the iceberg, with many more winners and performances set to rock the Brixton stage on the night.
Voting is now open for the other 23 categories at the VO5 NME Awards 2018. Have your say!
