Adele, Lana Del Rey and Take That Win Big at Ivor Novello Awards


The 'Rolling in the Deep' singer dominates the winner list with two kudos including Songwriter of the Year, while Del Rey and Take That get one each.

Adele, Lana Del Rey and Take That shone at Ivor Novello Awards that celebrated the best of British and Irish songwriters and composers. The "Someone Like You" hitmaker got two kudos, while the "Blue Jeans" singer and the boyband received one gong each.

Adele took home Songwriter of the Year title. "The main thing was the songs weren't as good as my voice," she told audience inside Grosvenor House Hotel in London upon accepting the prize. "And I took that on board and now I'm winning songwriter of the year."

She additionally grabbed PRS for Music Most Performed Work, thanks to her hit single "Rolling in the Deep". Collecting the kudo with its producer Paul Epworth, she quipped, "No offense Paul, I didn't think it was going to do anything, anywhere!"

Del Rey received Best Contemporary Song through her claim-fame single "Video Games". Meanwhile, Gary Barlow and his bandmates were honored with PRS for Music Outstanding Contribution to British Music. "Thank you for all your lovely messages re #ivors #takethatarmy #gbarmy," he tweeted.

Another winner at the event was Ed Sheeran who took home Best Song Musically and Lyrically for his single "The A Team". The British singer said during his acceptance speech, "It was always my goal to get (an Ivor)."

Celebrating its 57th anniversary, 2012 Ivor Novello Awards was attended by the likes of KT Tunstall, Boy George and Gary Kemp. Take That's Mark Owen came with his wife Emma Ferguson, and so did Garlow who arrived with his wife Dawn.
