Adele was the big winner at this year’s BRIT Awards, taking home the prizes for Song of the Year, Mastercard Album of the Year, and Artist of the Year.
The generally adored superstar released her fourth studio album ’30’, in November 2021. The full-length spent 5 weeks at the top of the UK album charts.
It was a ceremony that also saw Wolf Alice crowned as Britain’s Band of the Year. The Dork faves and recent cover stars received the accolade on the back of their third full-length ‘Blue Weekend’. The album, which was both critically acclaimed and loved by fans alike, debuted at Number 1 on the UK Official Album Chart and was nominated in the 2021 Mercury Awards.
Other winners included Little Simz, Sam Fender, Olivia Rodrigo, Dave, Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa, amongst others.
In terms of performances on the night, Ed Sheeran opened the show with a collaboration with Bring Me The Horizon, while Little Simz delivered a showstopping performance, and former Dork cover star Holly Humberstone showed why she’s taken the Rising Star gong.
