Alana Haim - Haim wanted to win Best Band Blog

Alana Haim was thrilled to win the NME Award for Best Band Blog or Twitter because it was the prize she most wanted to take home.

Alana's band Haim - which also features sisters Danielle and Este and drummer Dash Hutton - were up for five gongs at the ceremony at London's O2 Academy in Brixton last night (26.02.14) and walked away Best International Band, while Alana won the award for her Twitter account.

Before picking up the trophy, Alana, who has 84,000 followers on the site, told BANG Showbiz: ''I want to win the trophy for Best Twitter, I need to defend my crown for one more year. I won it last year, no one can touch me.

''I'm totally gonna change my bio if I win, I need to win! James Blunt is hilarious on Twitter, Albert Hammond Jr, he's like a bro. I need to start a nice Twitter war with him.''

'The Wire' hitmaker also praised Canadian producer and singer Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, who runs a successful fashion blog and was also nominated.

She said: ''And then Grimes is like the best, I kind of want to give her my award but I really want to win that!''

Asked what the NME Awards mean to her, Alana replied: ''I just love that all our fans can vote, for the BRITs it's not voted by the public.

''The NME Awards are chosen by the fans, everyone who is nominated are amazing and had amazing years, all the awards we are up for all the bands in our categories are fucking mind blowing. We're honoured to be here.''
