The Bee Gees were presented with the "Legend Award", only 42 days after the sudden death of Maurice Gibb. The award was received by the surviving brothers, Barry and Robin. During Barry's speech, he made mention of Maurice's widow Yvonne and their children Adam and Sami, and in a heartfelt, gracious and tearful moment announced that he and Robin were presenting the award to Maurice. It was then accepted by Adam, at Barry's request, on behalf of his late father, his mother and his sister.
