The incredible shortlist, selected by MTV officials, all went head-to-head as fans and MTV viewers rallied in their thousands to support their favourite artists, but it was Lovejoy’s devoted fanbase that gave them the extra push to become this year’s MTV PUSH UK & IRE winners. Henry Moodie, and Only The Poets followed.
