Best Act In The World Today is...
The Q Awards 2019 were on yesterday and musical royalty gathered in Camden to celebrate how great they are. The awards featured two new prizes - Best Vocal Performance (won by Little Simz) and Song of the Decade, won by Lana Del Rey for Video Games.
Stormzy won Best Solo Act and the 1975 won for the Best Act in the World Today.
Lewis Capaldi won for Best Track and when presented with his prize, he exclaimed: "What the f***?! As Ted [Kessler, Q editor] said at the start, music isn't a competition... but I f****** won!"
Full list of winners below!
Jonah Hill has stepped out of the race to become the next villain in Batman
It’s unclear why he won’t be part of the film, but apparently one of the points brought up in negotiations was whether Hill would play the Penguin or Riddler.
Elton John is not feeling the love for the Lion King remake.
“The new version of The Lion King a huge disappointment to me, because I believe they messed the music up. Music was so much a part of the original and the music in the current film didn’t have the same impact,” John said. “The magic and joy were lost.”
He composed and performed a number of songs for the original 1994 animated film, including “Circle of Life” and “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King.” This year’s remake features performances from music artists such as Pharrell Williams, Beyoncé and Donald Glover.
