Bugg lost out to Ben Howard, however before the show, he said "If I've got nowt to do I might swing by. I've got one day off from the tour. I don't know yet - I might go. I might just skip the do (party) and head to the after party. I'll wake up on Wednesday morning and just see how I feel, (my chances of winning are) very slim... I expect Rita Ora to win, but good luck to all of them.... it's great (to be nominated) but I don't really need an award to inspire me to keep writing music and playing my songs."
