The 2016 Brit Awards were held this past Wednesday, February 24 and was the 36th edition of the British Phonographic Industry’s annual pop music awards. The ceremony was held at the O2 in London and was presented by Ant & Dec for the third time. The Brit Awards honor excellence in music and lifelong achievements in the industry.
This year the performances did nothing but leave the crowd in awe on their feet. Performances through the night came from Coldplay, Justin Bieber, James Bay, Jess Glynne, Rihanna, Drake, SZA, Little Mix, David Bowie’s band, The Weeknd and Adele. On top of the performances, the winners this year were all well deserved. This year there were not any crazy surprises. Adele swept the awards, taking home the most gongs since Blur in 1995. She won four awards to become the most successful solo artist in one year. However, with record-breaking singles, top notch albums, and die-hard fans, the winners definitely had a lot to be thankful for:
Hello, Adele – Brit Award for best British Single
Adele – British Female Solo Artist Award
Coldplay – British Group Award
Jack Garratt – Critics’ Choice Award

The Awards did nothing but leave the star-studded audience attending and the even larger audience watching at home in awe. This year’s Brit Awards set an even higher level of expectations for the upcoming years.
