After a year of silence due to the pandemic, the 2022 NME Awards (also known as the self-styled “wildest night in music”) returned, sponsored by leading social music creation platform BandLab and hosted by Daisy May Cooper and Lady Leshurr.

Meanwhile, Lana Del Rey, Self Esteem, Ghetts, BTS, Olivia Rodrigo, Lorde, Bring Me The Horizon, IDLES and Megan The Stallion were also up for some of the biggest trophies.

Sam Fender won both the prestigious ‘Best Album In The World’ award and ‘Best Album By A UK Artist’ with Seventeen Going Under.
