On Wednesday 24th February at London O2 Arena, the 2016 Brit Awards took place.

The night was filled with celebs each trying to out do the other, but despite this, the star of the show was Adele.

The music industry's very own Mother Teresa, Adele walked away with Best British Solo Artist, British Single, Mastercard British Album of the Year and Global Success awards. In addition to her awards, she also provided support for Kesha in one of her many acceptance speeches, which went unacknowledged  by hosts, Ant and Dec, who instead discussed that at least this time no one had cut off her speech.

The night also played host to history making for now the most successful British group, Coldplay, who have now won the British Group award four times. More than anyone else in British Pop History and much deserved too! Coldplay also performed at the event, singing their latest hit Hymn For The Weekend.

Another star to take to the stage was Rihanna, who despite pulling out of the Grammys, delivered a performance to remember, with surprise guest Drake who joined her on stage towards the end. The whole production was a computerised grid of light, in which she and her backing dancers performed and twerked, before the arrival of Drake where things heated up.

As the night continued viewers watched additional artist performances, including Justin Bieber, winner of International Male Solo Artist, joined on stage by surprise guest James Bay, singing Love Yourself and Sorry, as well as Lorde singing her own heartfelt Bowie tribute. The nineteen-year-old New Zealand songstress delivered a very heartfelt and sombre version of Life On Mars, on of Bowie's greatest songs. The performance was powerful and affecting, backed by musicians who played with Bowie for decades. David Bowie was also announced the award winner for the Brit Icon Award, whose tribute was presented by Annie Lennox.
