Muse, Blur, Keane, Pulp and Plan B win Q Awards

Muse, Plan B and Django Django all picked up honours at todays yearly Q Awards

This afternoon saw the annual Q Magazine Awards Ceremony taking place in the Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair. The long standing music monthly was dishing out awards for excellence in 2012, with awards split between those decided by the magazine and those voted for by the public. Muse grabbed Best Act in the World Today, whilst psychedlic quartet Django Django were voted by the public to be Best New Act. We were surprised to see that Best Album went to Bobby Womack for The Bravest Man in the Universe, and less so that Plan B snapped up Best Song with Ill Manors. Best Live Act went to Blur and fellow Brit Pop legends Pulp romped off with the Inspiration Award. The full list of awards were as follows:
