Winners List of 2009 Q Awards, Lady GaGa Wins Best Video
2009 Q Awards has just been wrapped and LadyGaGa added a trophy to her collection. She won BestVideo, pushing aside The Dead Weather, Mika, Dizzee Rascal and Florence and The Machine. She, however, was not present at the show, much to host Al Murray`s dismay. "Remember LadyGaGa it`s show business not show friends!" Al said.
Though grabbing BestVideo, LadyGaGa was beaten in Breakthrough Artist category. She lost the title to Mr. Hudson. "Wow, thanks. White Lies sort of stole my speech," he said making a reference to the previously-announced winner. "I`ve never won anything before, thanks alot. I`m going to take this straight round to my mum`s house and put it on the mantelpiece, thanks a lot."
Joining LadyGaGa, Mr. Hudson and While Lies in the winnerslist was Lily Allen who received Best Track prize. "Q has been nice to me, I`m very proud, thanks," she said when collecting the award. Next, there were band Kasabian who nabbed Best Album. "Thanks for best live album....best live..best album," singer Tom Meighan stated during their acceptance speech.
Muse also managed to bring home one trophy. They were named Best Act in the World Today. When taking the stage to receive the award from Q Editor Paul Rees, they were given a raw chicken by Al for the forthcoming apocaplypse mentioned in their latest album, "The Resistance".
Held by Q Magazine, the award took place on November 26 in London this year. "Q remains proud of the fact that its awards recognizing musical achievement and excellence during the past 12 months are decided by the nation`s music fans, who once again have voted in their thousands," Paul said.
