Who wasn’t in front of their TV yesterday following the Brit awards? Well if you weren’t, here’s a little update for you.
So yesterday was the 30th edition of the Brit Awards. The ceremony was held at Earls Court Exhibition Centre in London and was broadcasted live on ITV1, hosted by Peter Kay with Fearne Cotton.
A selection of the worlds top artists were there, including Lady Gaga, Florence + The Machine, Lilly Allen, JLS, Kasabian, Dizzee Rascal, Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, Cheryl Cole and Robbie Williams.
As usual Gaga stole the show with an elaborate white lace outfit and poignant performance which she dedicated to Alexander McQeen. She topped things off by wining all three awards she was nominated for, International Female Solo, International breakthrough and the International album award.
Kasabian won the British group, which hopefully made up for Tom Meighan’s fall onto the stage! While a surprised Lily Allen got the British Female solo award.
Jay-Z can’t have regrets by flying to London as he scooped up the International Male Solo award, dedicating it to his controversial performance at Glastonbury last year and The Spice Girls as inspiration!! Dizee Rascal finally managed to get his hands on a coveted Brit Award by winning British Male Solo artist
To wrap things up, Florence + The Machine won the Mastercard British album award ( Sponsors of the Brits for 3 years now) and an ecstatic, if not slightly tipsy JLS won the British Breakthrough Act.
A good year all round for British music. And quite an exciting night for everyone!
