Emeli Sande - Emeli Sande Dominates Ivor Novellos

Scottish singer Emeli Sande was the toast of Britain's prestigious Ivor Novello awards on Thursday (16May13) after scooping two top honours.

The star's hit track Next To Me saw off competition from Bat for Lashes' Laura and Two Fingers by Jake Bugg to be named Best Song Musically and Lyrically, and the tune also landed the Prs for Music Most Performed Work prize, which featured Coldplay and Olly Murs on the shortlist.

It was also a big day for DJ Calvin Harris as he was named Songwriter of the Year at the bash, and for Noel Gallagher, who was the recipient of the Outstanding Song Collection nod.

During the ceremony, held at London's Grosvenor House hotel, The MACcabees landed Best Contemporary Song for their hit Pelican, and the Album Award went to Alt-J for An Awesome Wave.

Keira Knightley's Anna Karenina was also honoured - the period drama bagged the Best Original Film Score over Dr Seuss's The Lorax and Plan-B's gritty drama Ill Manors, while Best Television Soundtrack went to Lucian Freud: Painted Life.

Special awards went to Bush star Gavin Rossdale (International Achievement), Marc Almond (The Ivors Inspiration Award), Randy Newman (Prs for Music Special International Award), and Errollyn Wallen MBE (The Ivors Classical Music Award), while Moody Blues founder Justin Hayward was named the recipient of the Prs for Music Award for Outstanding Achievement.
