The Horrors and Florence

Last night, the NME Awards went down in London, and two titans of vaguely gothic Brit-rock shared the stage for one song. Florence & The Machine’s Florence Welch duetted with the Horrors on the latter band’s single “Still Life,” adding some pretty great backing-vocal soar to an already-huge song. Both acts finished the night as winners, too; Florence won Best Solo Artist and Best Track for “Shake It Out,” while the Horrors took home Best Album for Skying. The ceremony will be on British TV over the weekend, but the fan-made videos are already surfacing on YouTube, and they give us the added benefit of hearing drunk Brits bellowing along with the “Still Life” synth-riff. Watch the collab at YouTube (via Some Kind Of Awesome), and try to figure out whose hairstyle took more time. Check below for the full list of winners.

  2. NME is pretty much British toilet paper in terms of journalism, but thumbs up to them for at least putting together an awards show collaboration that beats mostly anything the Grammys throws together on an annual basis.

  3. Missed one. Best Album Artwork — Friendly Fires. A well deserved win.

  4. the horrors have come so far. 2muhluv
