Paolo Nutini was named Headline Performance of the Year at last night's (14.11.11) UK Festival Awards.
Paolo said earlier this year he feels his live show has improved as he is much more confident performing tracks from his second album, 'Sunny Side Up', live.
He said: "On the first record I was writing the songs, performing them live, but it was quite contained. The second felt like I was really expressing myself - my back wasn't hunched, my chest was out, I was up there singing feeling happy and confident.
"I was saying what I felt - and hopefully getting people moving and enjoying their night."
Elsewhere at the awards - held at London's Roundhouse venue - Anthem of the Summer went to dance act Chase and Status for their single 'Blind Faith', which was released in January, and became a staple of many DJ sets across the summer months.
Glastonbury was named Best Major Festival, while Fans' Favourite Festival was named as Bestival, which takes place on the Isle of Wight.
