What an incredible night!

Sadly, the BRIT Awards are over for another year – and what an show it was! There were tears, costume changes galore, excellent performances and even a little bit of nudity…what more could you want?

Adele was the night’s big winner, walking away with four of the five BRITs she was nominated for, but there were also major wins for Justin Bieber and Coldplay.

For a handy watercooler recap, look no further. Here are all the night’s best bits – let us know what moments you loved @CelebsNow!

Rihanna and Drake got a little saucy on stage

There were fears that Rihanna wouldn’t be able to perform at the BRITs after bronchitis forced her to cancel on the GRAMMYs earlier this month. Yet lo and behold, RiRi took the O2 stage by storm with two songs.

First, she introduced us to track Consideration, a cool collaboration with up-and-coming artist SZA before moving on to her summer-ready smash Work – and look who she brought out?

It’s only Drake! We’d had an inkling he’d show up after seeing these two partying in London earlier this week, but it didn’t stop us all from screaming and jumping up to copy their *steamy* moves.

Little Mix completely slayed their performance

Not bad at all for a BRITs debut, girls! Especially after what Perrie Edwards and Jesy Nelson said about their nerves before the show

And as it turns out, they had nothing to worry about, because their performance was SO. GOOD. They may have gone home empty-handed, but totally knocking the socks off a crowd like that, on such a large scale is one hell of a consolation prize! Well done girls!

David Bowie received a lovely tribute

The most sombre moment of the evening happened during a tribute to the late, great, David Bowie, who passed away in January. He posthumously received the British Icon Award – and really, who else deserved it more?

Annie Lennox and Gary Oldman spoke some touching words about Bowie, before Lorde gave a great rendition of Life On Mars.

One Direction thanked their fans

1D won the Brit Award for British Artist Music Video of the Year, beating strong competition from the likes of Little Mix and Years and Years. And Louis Tomlinson knew just who to thank first: ‘Times like these, we realise we have best fans in the world.’

And Directioners all over the world let out a simultaneous: ‘you’re welcome.’

Adele’s swearing – and some emotional speeches

During her acceptance speech for Global Success, Adele let slip an ‘f-bomb’ that didn’t quite escape the controllers muting attempts…oops!

But if Major Tim Peake had given us an a major award like that, all the way from the International Space Station, we’d probably have said a lot worse.

And then, Adele had a right old blub – bless ‘er. Read the speeches here

Adele also brought the proverbial house down with her show-closing performance of When We Were Young
