Taylor Swift won best solo in the world at the 2020 NME Awards in London on Wednesday (Feb. 12), and surprised everyone by showing up in person to accept her award.
Her middle finger trophy and glass of wine in hand, she addressed the high-energy crowd with a joke. “This is my first time at the NME Awards and I just feel like everyone here is so shy, so reserved. It’s like, ‘Are you guys going to have any fun tonight? Are you going to come out of your shells, at all?’ Oh, wait — no, this is like the craziest awards show I have ever been to, and I love it so much.”
