One Direction win Best Live Act at Silver Clef Awards
One Direction walked away with the Ticketmaster Best Live Act award for a second time at this year’s Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards.
The Best Live Act award is the only award that is voted for by the public and is in association with Ticketmaster. Fans were asked to cast their vote with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Muse and Adele in the running.
Despite 1D being on a break, this didn’t stop the votes from pouring in; One Direction managed to scoop a massive 60% of the public vote. Did they get your vote? Tell us who you voted for in the comments below.
