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 RihanFebruary 25, 2016

However, the night also played host to some unfortunate performances; with technical difficulties for Adele and a very busy and manic Bowie tribute performance by Lady Gaga. In addition, the audience also witnessed some on stage guest surprises, such as Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper performing with the Hollywood Vampires and Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, dressed as a taxi, appearing on stage during Pitbull's closing performance.
The star of the show was Taylor Swift, winning the album of the year award, becoming the first woman to win the award twice. She opened the show with a version of her hit Out of the Woods which proved to be a showstopFebruary 16, 2016
