BRIT Awards 2014


On 19th February, the great and good of the music industry descended on London’s O2 Arena for the BRITs. This year’s event was arguably the biggest yet, featuring spectacular performances by Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Pharrell Williams, Lorde and Disclosure, not to mention award presentations by Prince, Kylie and Noel Gallagher.

Arctic Monkeys were the big winners on the night – scooping Best Group and Best Album for an unprecedented third time – though One Direction didn’t do badly either, picking up the public vote for Best Video and bagging the Global Success award for the second year running. Elsewhere Bastille won Best Breakthrough Act, and David Bowie and Ellie Goulding were named Best British Male and Best British Female respectively.

You can see the rest of the winners, and preview and download music by all the nominees and performers, below.
