U2 have been honoured at the Q Awards with the gong for being the greatest act of the past quarter of a century.
The band were chosen by readers of the music magazine who voted in their droves to crown them the winners.
Adele was another big winner at the event, taking home two prizes for Best Female and Best Track for her hit, Rolling In The Deep.
Unfortunately, Adele was unable to collect her awards, with her producer doing so on her behalf.
Other award winners included Coldplay, named as the Best Act in the World Today, and X Factor judge Gary Barlow, who was given an honorary prize for his classic songwriting over the last two decades.
Brit-winning rapper Tinie Tempah continued his success by taking home the award for Best Male, while current album Number 1, Noel Gallagher, was named Q Icon.
Newly announced judge of the BBCs The Voice, Jessie J landed the best video gong for her track, Do It Like A Dude, but she lost out to newcomer Ed Sheeran when it came to the prize for Best Breakthrough.
This year's awards, which were held on 24 October, marked the 25th anniversary of Q music magazine.
