In a shock twist, Adele has won two ‘gongs’ at this year’s Ivor Novello awards.
‘Rolling In The Deep’ won the PRS Most Performed Work award, while the ‘Cold Shoulder’ hitmaker was also ‘crowned’ Songwriter of the Year.
Apparently Annie Lennox, who was presenting the latter award, made Adele cry during her speech, comparing the first time she heard her sing to being “struck by lightning”, which is one way of putting it.
It could have been more for Adele but ’21′ lost in the Best Album category to PJ Harvey’s LOLfest ‘Let England Shake’.
Take That, meanwhile, won the snappily-titled PRS For Music Outstanding Contribution to British Music award, while Authentic Chanteuse Lana Del Rey was awarded Best Contemporary Song for ‘Video Games’.
Chief borelord Ed Sheeran won Best Song Musically and Lyrically for ‘The A Team’.
So there you have it.
