The Brits have come and gone and the flights back to Hollywood hide aways will no doubt be thankful as celebrities from across the pond return home after music heavy weights thronged London Town for the 2014 Brit awards at the O2 Arena.
Host, James Corden was at his best as it’s his last year hosting the show but to be honest, it wasn’t the most amazing ceremony we’ve seen.
There were big performances on the night from Queen Bey herself, shimmering away in a lovely green number. Of course the show wouldn’t have been complete without a dose of Pharrel Williams and Nile Rogers performing the chart topper Happy!
Grammy award winner and now, Brit award winner Lorde also gave a rousing performance of her hit Royals.
Ellie Goulding continued her skin revealing stint by performing hit Burn in a golden bra and knickers. Oh and the best bit. A very funny…out of sorts acceptance speech by our favourite munch kins, One Direction.
The all-conquering boy band won the public vote on Twitter for video of the year for their song Best Song Ever. When they turned up to receive their award, Niall Horan was sporting crutches as he’s recovering from a major knee surgery to fix some torn ligaments in his knee. Harry Styles on the other hand was nowhere to be found! The star eventually joined his band mates on stage, halfway through their acceptance speech, apologizing for his absence; apparently, he’d gone for a wee…did you say hmm? 😉
Kate Moss blessed us with her presence and silky voice as she collected the award for British Male solo Artist on behalf of David Bowie, who, by the way used his speech to express his view for Scottish independence. The speech read “Good evening ladies and gentleman, David has asked me to say this. I’m completely delighted to have a Brit for being the best male – but I am, aren’t I Kate? Yes. I think it’s a great way to end the day. Thank you very, very much and Scotland stay with us.”
The pop icon is now the oldest artist to have ever received the award at the age of 66.
