2016 Brit Awards: Winners & Performances


The 2016 Brit Awards could’ve easily been dubbed ‘The Adele Show.’ The 27-year-old superstar singer won in every category she was nominated in. Girl cleaned up by taking home four awards. The “Hello” diva also took the time to publicly support Kesha during one of her acceptance speeches. Is it sad to say that this whole #FreeKesha movement will actually turn the “Tik Tok” singer into a bigger star she was before?

James Bay, Coldplay, and One Direction were a few of the other homegrown winners while Bjork, Tame Impala and Justin Bieber received recognition in the international categories. The latter was joined by Bay during his “Love Yourself” performance.

Check out all the winners and performances below. One of the highlights was Lorde singing “Life On Mars” during the David Bowie tribute. If you got time to kill, you can watch the entire telecast in the embedded YouTube clip at the end of the post.
