Dizzee Rascal's Unexpected Award
British rapper DIZZEE RASCAL was stunned when he was named a winner at the Shockwaves NME Awards on Wednesday (25Feb09) - because he didn't realise he was nominated for a prize.
The Fix Up, Look Sharp star walked away with the trophy for Best Dancefloor Filler for his Dance Wiv Me collaboration with Calvin Harris at the annual ceremony in London.
But the hip-hop hitmaker didn't have an acceptance speech prepared - insisting he only turned up to the event because he had been asked to present one of the night's awards.
He tell NME.com, "I didn't even come here expecting to win. If I'm honest I didn't even know I was up for nomination either! I just kind of came because I knew I was giving out an award!"
