Taylor Swift wins Best Solo Act NME Award 2020
While records are not performing as well as they once did, and digital downloads seem to be diminishing in popularity, Taylor Swift has been steadfast and has still managed to dominate the world of music over the past decade, selling far more singles than any other American artist.
Taylor Swift won Best Solo Act Award in The World at the NME Awards 2020 in London which was held on 12th February 2020. She termed the NME Awards this year as the craziest awards show she has ever been to and that she loved it so much. The event was held at the O2 Academy Brixton and was hosted by Katherine Ryan and Julie Adenuga. To commemorate the win, Swift took shared a photo of her new middle finger trophy on Instagram on Thursday 13 February. And of course, she added to her Lover track, “London Boy,” a little reference. The international pop star beat Lizzo, Lana Del Rey and Billie Eilis as her fellow nominees.

🎶 I enjoy nights in Brixton 🎶 …but especially when they’re like last night – @nmemagazine you really know how to have a good time. Met @clairo @radvxz and @fkatwigs who are amazing. Got to tell @robynkonichiwa she’s the melody queen of my musical heart. I got sprayed by champagne when people won & got to take another middle finger trophy home to the felines. Thanks for having me!! 🇬🇧🍾🥂 📷: @gettyentertainment @hogieaaa__
