The past 12 months have been jam packed with amazing music so, it is unsurprising that the line up for this years song of the year was incredibly impressive.
The likes of Ed Sheeran, Jason Derulo and Ellie Goulding appeared on the list but in the end Hozier’s Take Me To Church came out on top.
It is a song that we all had on repeat for months so it is a very worthy winner however, we can’t deny that we are shocked that it beat Jess Glynne’s Hold My Hand.
