What a show, what a show

If you were at home on Wednesday night, there’s a pretty great chance that you were sitting down and 100% tuned into The Brit Awards, just like we were…

Considered by many as the most entertaining and explosive of British award shows, the BRITs have always delivered some unforgettable moments over the years – Adele swearing, Madonna falling, Adele swearing again… we’ve had it all!

But if you missed it, here are some of the highlights…

Little Mix kicked off the show…

…and they did so in style with a punchy, robotic infused version of their smash hit crowd pleaser Shout Out To My Ex.

Unsurprisingly, they absolutely slayed the stage, with Perrie Edwards in particular delivering fantastic vocals! And this was just the start of an amazing night for the girls…

Bruno Mars got us hot under the collar

Proving once again that great things can come in small packages, Bruno Mars (and his backing singers!) charmed us all with his performance of upcoming hit That’s What I Like – detailing all the things he’d do on a date.

With silk sheets, diamonds, and *getting it on* by the fireplace being part of the deal, Bruno’s got some saucy stuff on the cards…

In memoriam

Sadly, every year includes a more sombre moment to commemorate names in the music industry that are no longer with us. This year’s list included greats such as Prince, Leonard Cohen, Pete Burns, Leon Russell, Phife Dawg, David Bowie – and of course, George Michael, who died on Christmas Day 2016.

His Wham! bandmates Pepsi, Andrew Ridgeley and Shirlie gave an emotional speech, describing him as a ‘supernova’ before introducing Chris Martin, who gave a moving rendition of his 1986 hit A Different Corner.

Katy Perry’s dancing house fell down

During K-Pez’s performance of Chained to the Rhythm, she had some small houses accompanying her and Skip Marley on stage. (And dancing versions of Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump. Why not.)

Unfortunately, one had a bit of a faux pas… and took a tumble into the crowd.

We hope the little home is okay!

Ed Sheeran and Stormzy – the bromance we never knew we needed

Now, don’t get us wrong – Shape of You is a pretty great tune. Catchy from the very start, it was the banger that Ed needed to launch him back into our lives.

However, when grime star and BRITs nominee Stormzy was added? MAGIC.

Little Mix’s 1st win! 

Congratulations to everyone’s favourite pop ladies on scooping their very first Brit award for British Single, for Shout Out To My Ex! And taking inspiration from at very song, Jade Thirlwall even shouted out the exes who made the song possible. That’ll teach ’em to mess with the Mixers!
