This year's BRIT Awards saw Lewis Capaldi take home the most statues, alongside other winners Dave, Stormzy, Mabel, and Billie Eilish.

Capaldi scooped two awards at this year's BRITs, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year Award - both followed by hilarious speeches. He thanked his late grandmother for the success of "Someone You Loved", which isn't actually about his Love Island ex-girlfriend Paige.

Stormzy also had a big night after taking home the Male Solo Artist Award. He thanked his large team, and gave a shout out to all the women he works with, and even performed a mashup of multiple Heavy Is The Head singles and brought out Burna Boy for "Own It".

Harry Styles and Lizzo showed off their blossoming friendship to the cameras, but neither won any awards despite Styles being up for Male Solo Artist and Mastercard Album Of The Year. Lizzo lost out on the International Female Solo Artist Award to Billie Eilish.

As mentioned before, International Female Solo Artist Award went to Eilish, who debuted her stunning new James Bond theme song "No Time To Die” for the first time alongside her brother Finneas, Hans Zimmer, and Johnny Marr. Eilish got emotional while giving her speech for her award, revealing she felt "hated" the past few days.

Tyler, The Creator picked up the International Male Solo Artist Award, and brilliantly thanked ex-British Prime Minister Theresa May for banning him from the UK.

Dave was up for three awards (Best New Artist, Album Of The Year, and Male Solo Artist) this year, and ended up taking home the Mastercard Album Of The Year Award for his debut album PSYCHODRAMA.

Foals finally won Best Group at this year’s BRITs, and vocalist Yannis Philippakis shared his thanks in their speech, while also noting that he hopes to see more women in the group nominees for next year’s ceremony.

Mabel picked up the Female Solo Artist Award tonight, and accepted the award three decades on from her own mum (Neneh Cherry) winning two BRIT Awards.
