If, like me, you tuned into last night’s BRIT awards at the O2 Arena I think you’ll agree it was quite the show!

Kicked off with a fab performance by Take That and hosted by James Corden, this year’s BRIT awards were packed full of excitement as musical acts went head to head over awards such as British Breakthough Act, International Female Act and Mastercard British Album Of The Year.

Both Tinie Tempah and Arcade Fire scooped two trophies each. Rapper Tinie took home British Breakthrough Act and British Single for his debut track ‘Pass Out’ – both of which were voted for by the public – while the Canadian indie group won International Album for their record ‘The Suburbs’, as well as International Group.

Accepting his first award, Tinie gave a tight hug to presenter Fearne Cotton, before saying: “I got a BRIT Award guys! I want to big up my mum, my family and God – and I want to big up all the fans. Thank you. Biggest Breakthrough baby!”

The 22-year-old later took to the stage to perform a medley of his tracks ‘Written In The Stars’, ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ and ‘Pass Out’, which saw him joined by producer Labrinth, whom he paid tribute to when picking up his BRIT for ‘Pass Out’, He said: “A second BRIT! I just want to thank Labrinth for being the genius the created the instrumental, Labrinth this one’s for you and me brother, and for UK music, peace and love.”

The awards closed with a special duet between Cee Lo Green and ‘Stone Cold Sober’ singer Paloma Faith, who gave an edited, radio friendly rendition of his track ‘F**k You’. Which is probably what she was thinking by the end of the song, as Cee Lo actually ripped the bow of her dress by mistake!
