It's LG for GG!

2018’s Godlike Genius has been announced for the VO5 NME Awards 2018 and it’s Liam Gallagher.

On February 14, LG will swagger his handsome self down to Brixton Academy to pick up the Godlike Genius trophy at the VO5 NME Awards 2018. After that, he’ll get on stage and do what he does best: sing some of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll tunes the world has ever known.

NME Editor in Chief Mike Williams says: “Every once in a while you’re faced with a decision that you might call a total no-brainer. Giving Liam Gallagher the 2018 Godlike Genius award falls into that category. 

Through his history, the tunes, the swagger and the sense of humour, Liam is one of the most iconic rock stars of all time. He’s a frontman who knows the job description – look cool, belt it out, be totally Godlike – and I can’t wait to see him take his rightful place on the throne in Brixton in February” 

Here’s what Liam had to say about the whole thing: “I wanna thank the NME for their Godlike Genius award. It’s about f**king time as far as I’m concerned.”
