Ivor Novello Awards 2010: Winners And Pictures

by | 20th, May 2010

LILY Allen scooped her three Ivor Novello Awards. Says she: “Really, truly, from the bottom of my heart, it’s the songs I’m most proud of. This song [The Fear] is so much about feeling lost in a lot of ways. All of a sudden, this has made me feel found.” Johnny Marr won the “inspiration prize”. Says he: “I always thought that the greatest thing you can achieve as a musician is to be called an inspiration – aside from a big house in Sunningdale obviously.”
