Muse - Muse Win Top Prize At Q Awards

British rockers Muse were the kings of Q magazine's music awards on Monday (22Oct12) after they were named Best Act In The World Today.

Australian pop star Kylie Minogue was on hand to present the honour to the trio at a ceremony in London, where frontman Matt Bellamy credited their tight bond for their enduring success.

Accepting the trophy, Bellamy said, "The key to winning this has been staying together. We're solid as a rock. Thank you."

Rockers Blur also scooped a top prize, seeing off competition from the Stone Roses, The Cribs, Radiohead and Bruce Springsteen to be named Best Live Act, and Bobby Womack won Best Album for The Bravest Man In The Universe.

Keane's Disconnected promo was named Best Video, Django Django were crowned the Best New Act, and Scottish singer Emeli Sande was named Best Solo Artist.

The Manic Street Preachers' 1992 debut Generation Terrorists was voted Q Classic Album, The Killers' Brandon Flowers was named Q Idol, and former The Smiths star Johnny Marr won the Q Hero award. Rapper Plan B's hit Ill Manors was Best Track and Pulp took home the Q Inspiration honour.

R&B legend Dionne Warwick also turned up, despite a recent ankle injury, to collect the Q Classic Song award for Walk On By.
