One Direction could be adding not one, but two prestigious NME Awards to their mantelpiece next month. The NME Awards 2013 shortlist has been unveiled today, and our favourite band have cropped up in two different categories.
But we can’t imagine they’re going to be too pleased when they find out which ones.
One Direction have been nominated for ‘Worst Band’ alongside Muse, Mumford & Sons, Alt-J, Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran. Harry Styles has also been nominated for ‘Villain Of The Year’, alongside David Cameron, Skillrex, Psy, Fred Macpherson and Azealia Banks. Eek.
NME readers voted in their thousands to create this year’s shortlist. They’ll now have to fight off criticism from the band’s fans, the Directioners, who have a huge following on Twitter.
The Rolling Stones are up for four awards, while The Maccabees are up for three. Let’s hope our boys have better luck at the BRITs! RM
