Speech Debelle wins Mercury Music Prize 2009

Shock, gasp. Is anyone really surprised? The favourite never wins even if Florence and the Machine deserved to this year. Also, State pick Friendly Fires left empty-handed.

A clearly chuffed Speech Debelle was the surprise winner for her Speech Therapy album. She even brought her granny along. How cute. Well done to her and her label Big Dada.
