Q Awards 2014: List of winners in full

Double winners Kasabian were named 'the best band in the world'
ROBERT DEX Wednesday 22 October 2014

Kasabian were two-time winners at the Q Awards where they were hailed as the “best act in the world”.

The ceremony also recognised the efforts of independent record label, XL Recordings, which helped steer Adele to worldwide fame.
Its boss, Richard Russell, picked up the award for outstanding contribution to music at the event at the Grosvenor House hotel in central London.
The label also counts albums by The Prodigy, the White Stripes and Dizzee Rascal among its output.

Other winners included Ed Sheeran, who was named best solo artist, and Sam Smith, who won the best new act award.

Kasabian also carried off the award for best live act, beating this year's comeback queen Kate Bush in both categories.

Paolo Nutini won the gong for best track for Iron Sky from his Caustic Love album while Elbow's The Take Off And Landing Of Everything was named best album, but the band lost out in the best video category to Jamie xx.
