Juice FM celebrated their sixth annual Juice Style Awards at the Anglican Cathedral, with a host of stars in attendance.
The awards, sponsored by Tessuti, saw Liverpool singer Rebecca Ferguson pick up two awards: Stylish Scouser and the Music Award. Guests included MOBO award winner and fellow Liverpudlian, Esco Williams; 2010 X Factor winner, Matt Cardle, local Olympians Beth Tweddle and Natasha Jonas, and the cast of Desperate Scousewives amongst others.
This year’s event, held on Saturday night, was presented by Juice FM’s Breakfast hosts, Adam Weighell and Leanne Campbell and celebrated Liverpool being one of the most stylish cities in the UK.
The awards were the biggest yet as more Juice FM listeners than ever before voted online for the various categories, covering everything from music, fashion, sport, retail and culture. Guests were treated to a three-course meal and pre-ceremony performances from the Brazilica Festival Dancers and RARE Dance Studios.
The star-studded event also saw performances by Cardle – who pipped Ferguson to the 2010 X Factor title – and R&B singer, Angel.
Cardle said: “I think the atmosphere is absolutely great. I feel good. I’ve not been too well so my voice has kind of gone so I hope I managed to sound half-decent.
“The support has been amazing ever since I came to the show [The X Factor]. Having a second top ten album, I was really not expecting that. I want to thank everyone that’s supported me and especially the people that are here tonight for being lovely. There’s lots of lovely people here.”
Winners on the night included Liverpool Skipper, Steven Gerrard who picked up Stylish Sporting Star Award for the second year running. MOBO’s Unsung winner Esco Williams also won the Up and Coming Award.
Williams said: “I’m made up. I’ve just been trying my best and I’ve been trying to represent Liverpool in the best way that I physically can. This award is basically from the people that have been supporting me, it’s them that gave me this. I’m just happy. Liverpool likes to recognise and see its own people doing well and I think that’s reflected in what I’m doing. I’m just honoured.”
