It’s that time of year again – the annual Q Music Awards! Presenting the ceremony for the fourth year running is everyone’s favourite pub landlord Al Murray, though we’re sure those of you with a Q magazine subscription will already know that!
The awards are voted for by the readers – so hopefully you’ll also agree that the winners are deserving too.
Speaking about the past year, Q editor Andrew Harrison said: "It's been the most incredible year for British music. Our bands and our anthems transformed the Olympics into the greatest music event on Earth. And amazing comeback shows from Blur and the Stone Roses showed the enduring appeal of our greatest musicians. All the nominees for this year's Q Awards helped make 2012 an absolutely unforgettable year."
The ceremony is being held in London today and, as per usual, will have a guest list made up of the biggest names in music. Check out the full list of nominees:
