The BRIT Awards are over for another year, and once again delivered a killer lineup of A-list performances!

Ed Sheeran and Adele were the biggest winners of the night, with both taking out best British male and female solo artist gongs respectively, and Ed going on to win the best British Breakthrough Aact award as well!

Check out all the red carpet action from the BRIT Awards!

Coldplay opened the event at the O2 Arena in London with their performance, closely followed by Florence and the Machine.

Superstar Adele belted out Rolling in the Deep and Rihanna wowed the crowd with a super sexy version of We Found Love, during which she emerged from a paint-spattered glass box wearing white hotpants! RiRi also scooped the International Female Solo Artist BRIT award.

The ceremony also paid tribute to those that have passed away recently, including Amy Winehouse and of course Whitney Houston.
