Spandau Ballet have won an award for Best Comeback Of The Year.
The 80s New Romantics picked up the title at the Virgin Media Music Awards after reuniting last year to tour the UK.
Frontman Tony Hadley thanked fans for "enabling us to have the best time back on stage together".
He said: "The tour so far has been fun beyond belief and, as we start the European dates, we are already looking forward to playing in the UK again at our first ever festival at the Isle of Wight in June."
Pixie Lott was named Best Newcomer, Lily Allen won Best Track for her single The Fear and Cheryl Cole was awarded the title of Hottest Female.
Meanwhile hip-hop star Kanye West, who shocked the audience at the MTV Video Music Awards when he interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech last autumn, was declared Loser Of The Year.
Lady Gaga won Best Album for The Fame, but was also awarded the Shameless Publicity Seeker gong, while Britney Spears was named Best Solo Female and Twit Of The Year.
Take That won Best Group and band member Mark Owen was awarded the Hottest Male gong, beating former bandmate Robbie Williams, who did clinch Best Solo Male. The late Michael Jackson was awarded Legend Of The Year.
