[b]Pete Doherty[/b] failed to show at the NME Awards launch party at the O2 Arena tonight (December 6), but the rest of [b]Babyshambles[/b] soldiered on bravely without him.

After sets from current NME faves [b]Joe Lean & The Jing Jang Jong[/b] and [b]The Wombats[/b], Pete Doherty failed to show to lead planned headliner’s Babyshambles.

Instead, the band carried on without him, with bassist [b]Drew McConnell[/b] taking vocal duties.

After pulling a member from the audience to sing “Carry On Up The Morning”, Drew delivered vocals for five songs, joined by Josh from [b]The Paddingtons[/b], who sang vocals on a cover of The Clash’s “Janie Jones”.

The Shockwaves NME Awards are set to take place at the Indig02 on February 28, 2008.
