@feelgoodlost @MichaelDHiggins Great work Brendan, fair play!
Taylor Swift, Hozier and newcomer Jack Garratt won the other prizes on offer at the second annual BBC Music Awards.
Adele has trounced the competition at the 2015 BBC Music Awards, winning two of the five prizes in the form of British Artist of the Year and BBC Live Performance of the Year, for her BBC One live special ‘Adele at the BBC’ last month.
The 27 year old was not present for the second annual ceremony at Birmingham’s Genting Arena, but she sent a message by way of reaction saying: “That's amazing. I've only just put out new music. I'm so chuffed.”
Adele was absent for the ceremony at Birmingham's Genting Arena, but won two prizes anyway

Sam Smith is still topping album sales for his debut release.
Sam Smith continues to win over the nation with his debut album 'In The Lonely Hour' as it slides back up to number one in the UK Album Chart for its fifth non-consecutive week with more than 1.2 million copies sold.
Sam Smith back at number one
The British singer-songwriter shot to the top of the charts in June 2014 with the record, which includes the hit singles 'Money On My Mind' and 'Stay With Me', before returning to the top spot in September and no once again re-claiming that marker. The multi-platinum release has now had five weeks at the top according to the latest count.

Not one but two Fantasy Bras were displayed at this year's London show.
The 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show finally hit London on Tuesday (December 2nd) at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre for it's UK debut which saw twice as much bedazzlement as last year and just as much exciting live music.
The Victoria's Secret girls arrive in London for the 2014 fashion show
Last year, only 40 models stole the runway when it took place at New York's Lexington Armory, but this week a further seven models joined the show for the biggest Victoria's Secret event yet. Not only that but the 19th Annual Fashion Show features a whopping 79 different looks, with this year's six categories including Angel Ball, Dream Girl, Exotic Traveler, Fairy Tale, Gilded Angels and University of Pink.
Andrew Hozier-Byrne has undoubtedly had a phenomenal twelve months. Two EPs, one album, numerous festivals and live dates, TV soundtracking, an appearance on Letterman (among many others) and a world wide hit single, 'Take Me To Church'. With a year like that you'd struggle to argue against his decision to drop out of university at Trinity College Dublin to pursue his musical career.
After rearing himself on an unconventional musical diet (for a 7 year old boy), of Nina Simone and Tom Waits, Hozier has honed his skills via an eight piece teen blues band, the Trinity College Orchestra and more recently, Anuna, an Irish choral group. Being stuck out in the relative musical wilderness of Bray, County Wicklow during his formative years may have made it difficult for someone aching to find new music to discover but the refuge of his parents record collection has reaped its just rewards.
It appears just as importantly to Hozier's musical development has been his coming of age. By his own admission he is no longer writing songs filled with teen angst but from the perspective of one who has experienced his first true love, and probably more importantly from an artistic stand point, been scarred by its ending.

Sweetlife 2014 lives up to its name with amazing sets from Fitz & the Tantrums and Foster The People.
Sweetlife festival proved its worth with a fantastic day of quality music and incredible food at the weekend, with Foster The People and Fitz & The Tantrums among the clear highlights of the Maryland event.
We're tempted to jump on the pun bandwagon and talk about how 'sweet' Sweetlife festival was last weekend - but we'll try and avoid it. Though speaking of such, the food was an important feature of the whole day (May 10th 2014) with one memorable fact being Astro Doughnuts' batch of 2,000 of their famous sugary treat. Obviously, there were plenty of happy faces before the music even began.
With great food, a healthy atmosphere and a short but 'sweet' line-up, Sweetlife 2014 is not worth missing.
Billed as 'a music and food festival', Sweetlife 2014 is set to offer the best of both with their single day event this weekend (May 10th 2014) at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.
With the grand setting of masses of surrounding forestland, Sweetlife has developed into a much-loved annual party since its inception in 2010 when it was simply a small event held outside the Sweetgreen food destination in Dupont, Washington DC. And yet, it has maintained its solid ethics of green living and healthy eating, enforcing this with offers of local produce and green set-ups such as solar powered stages, composting waste disposal and recycling units. To make it even better, all proceeds from the event go to a very worthy charitable cause!
