The Original Rudeboys collect their Song of the Year award for “Never Gonna Walk Away”

I’ve hummed and hawed about what to write about Choice Music Prize this year – you know from previous posts that I love this chance to see what is deemed to be the best of music the previous year had to offer. I don’t always agree, but I always appreciate the opportunity to see acts that I might not get to see otherwise. This year, I think I’m going to keep my writing to a minimum and let my snaps do the talking – I was sitting right in the front (so close to the stage that I ended up minding the Hot Press photographer’s bag under my seat!) and this may be my last chance to sit so close. My friend who makes this annual outing with me has warned me that next year she might not let me sit so close – I sometimes forget that not everyone appreciates being quite so close to the action!

The brilliant Lisa O’Neill – as the cousin of my friends, I have to admit I was rooting for her!
