Florence Welch took the stage twice to receive two prizes at this year’s NME Awards. “The Shake It Out” singer was happy to relive the success she had at last year’s awards, so at the Troxy in East she picked up London, the prize for Solo Artist and Best Dancefloor Anthem for her collaboration with Calvin Harris, “Sweet Nothing.” ‘I really didn’t expect to get this again, especially because it’s debatable whether I’m a solo artist,’ she said at the star studded-bash.

The famous One Direction also took home two awards, but the boys were not as thrilled as Florence from Florence and The Machine to receive them. The boy band grabbed the awards for Worst Band and the group’s Harry Styles was named the Villain of the Year at 2013 NME Awards.

The other winners at the UK magazine’s annual ceremony were: The Killers for the Best International Band, Rolling Stones for Best Live Band and Best Music Film, rising act Palma Violets for the Best New Band, Biffy Clyro for Best British Band. The Maccabees went home with the award Best Album for their record Given To The Wild, Foals’ “Inhaler” was awarded the Best Track, Blur’s 21 was honored as the Best Re-Issue, Arctic Monkeys’ “R U Mine?” as the Best Music Video, while Muse was awarded for Best Fan Community.
