Paul Weller was on hand to receive his Godlike Genius award and performed live, as did the Specials, who were honoured with the Outstanding Contribution to Music gong.
Paramore fought off the likes of Vampire Weekend, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Kings of Leon to win Best International Band, while Best New Band went to Londoners Bombay Bicycle Club. Paramore's victory was met with a chorus of boos from the crowd at the event.
