Adele’s Q Award double

Adele triumphs at Q Awards

Singer Adele has walked away with two Q Awards at this year’s ceremony in London.

The 23-year-old won the Best Female Artist and Best Track prizes at the music awards, but was unable to attend the ceremony.

It was her smash hit Rolling in the Deep that won the Best Track accolade over Someone Like You, which was also in the running.

Her victory comes just weeks after she was forced to postpone her US tour due to illness.

Other prizes went to rapper Tinie Tempah for Best Male Artist and Coldplay, who picked up the award for Best Act in the World Today.

Best Album went to Bon Iver, beating PJ Harvey and Elbow to the title, while Noel Gallagher was presented with the Q Icon award.

Gallagher, who is currently at Number 1 in the album charts with his High Flying Birds, said as he accepted the prize:

“I’ve had a lot of awards over the years but this is the most recent.”

U2 were voted best band in the publication’s lifetime, with frontman Bono telling the BBC that Q had been crucial to his career:

“It’s a truly great thing. They’re so important for anyone that wants to take all their music all the way.”

The ceremony also saw Queen entered into the monthly music magazine’s Hall Of Fame and Siouxsie Sioux honoured for her outstanding contribution to music.

Q Magazine is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Liam 'too busy' to attend

Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has tied the knot with his long-term girlfriend, Sara MacDonald, but there was one family member noticeably absent from proceedings.

Noel’s brother Liam, who is currently touring with his new band Beady Eye, was said to be “too busy” to attend the wedding.

The pair haven’t spoken in two years, with Liam previously saying that he and his brother don’t see eye to eye.

The couple wed in front of friends and other family members on 18 June at the luxurious Lime Wood Hotel, located in the heart of the New Forest National Park.

According to reports, Noel, 44, wore a light grey suit with a white shirt and black tie, while his bride, 39, chose a full-length white dress with long sleeves.

The pair met 11 years ago in Ibiza and have two children together.
