Justin Bieber and the Jonas Brothers may attract hoards of screaming teenage fans but they proved less popular with NME readers who voted for them to receive three ‘worst’ gongs at this year’s awards.
Biebs scooped the Least Stylish and Worst Album gongs in the rock bible’s annual awards while Disney’s Jonas Brothers were named Worst Band.
Unsurprisingly, neither were present at last night’s ceremony at Brixton Academy to collect their trophies.
More successful acts on the night included My Chemical Romance, who picked up the Best International Band and Best Video awards as well as opening the ceremony.
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was named Godlike Genius, the first time the award hasn’t gone to a British act.
Lady Gaga was voted readers’ Hero Of The Year while PM David Cameron picked up Villain Of The Year.
