Lady GaGa, U2, Lily Allen and the Arctic Monkeys are among the acts to take home a gong at last night's Q Awards, while Muse beat off competition from Kings of Leon, Coldplay and Oasis to bag the big one 'Best Act In The World Today'.

Amy Winehouse once again succeeded in drawing attention to herself when she failed to arrive ontime to present The Specials with their 'Q Inspiration' award. Winehouse was booked to present the award alongside reggae singer Don Letts, who was ushered back into his seat as a search party was sent out for the singer. Host Al Murray successful filled some extra time and suggested that Winehouse's 'beehive is presumably stuck in a lift'. Amy finally arrived onstage in the middle of The Specials' acceptance speech, and later described them as 'the most inspirational band of all time'. Winehouse was also heard heckling Robert Plant as he collected his award for 'Outstanding Contribution To Music'. Apparently, when asked what delayed her appearance, Winehouse responded 'What's is to you? I was doing my hair.'
