UPDATE: Some more photos of Duffy at this event....
Duffy made an appearance at the Music Week awards show on Thursday and performed a short acoustic set, including a new song called "Don't Forsake Me"
BRIT-WINNING Welsh lass DUFFY has swerved the limelight for the past 12 months.
But she burst right back into it on Thursday with a surprise appearance at an awards show.
She aired her new track Don't Forsake Me at the Music Week Awards at London's Grosvenor House.
I'm told she has written 50 tracks since releasing debut album Rockferry in 2008.
That's some work rate.
I only hope there's quality along with the quantity.
From Music Week:
Duffy closed the night by playing a short acoustic set. She says she was extremely excited to be at the event, adding, “It is an honour to be invited to the Music Week Awards; it is always guaranteed to be a fantastic night.
“It’s been quite hectic so far, trying to talk to as many people as possible, but I’ve been enjoying every minute of it. I’m really happy as well at the great reception I got from the crowd.”
