So The Brits were on…
Last night, 19th February, was the night of the forever anticipated UK music awards ceremony the BRITS. Of course the night was incredible and full of stars and sweet performances left right and centre. Hosted by Gavin and Stacey actor James Cordon, performances of the night included Arctic Monkeys, Ellie Goulding, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Bastille and Rudimental.
So you are interested in finding out who won some of the awards this year? Well, first up was the award for Best British Female Act in which Ellie Goulding was crowned. Best British Male went to David Bowie, and the Global success award went to the boys of One Direction for a second year in a row. Although Harry did miss the beginning of the boys acceptance speech for this award as he was in the toilet, but ran on stage to join the boys. Bastille managed to go home with the Best British Breakthrough Act, while Bruno Mars beat the likes of Justin Timberlake and Eminem for Best International Male Solo Artist. Successfully fighting off the competition of Lady Gaga and Pink, Lorde walked away with Best International Female Solo Artist. And while the selection for Best International Band included Haim, Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Daft Punk took the prize home; in fact their first ever Brit award.
Last but not least, the award for the Best British Single, beating 9 other singles including ‘Pompei – Bastille’ and ‘I Need Your Love – Calving Harris ft Ellie Goulding’ the boys of Rudimental rightfully won this award for their total hit ‘Waiting All Night- Rudimental ft Ella Eyre’.
