brit awards

There were ups and (literal) downs at the Brit Awards last night, with Taylor Swift opening the show looking like a goddess and Madonna flying backwards into a pile of dancers.


The Brit Awards rarely bring out a multitude of talking points but luckily – for us – this year, there were a few wondrous and woeful moments. From Paloma’s victory to Kim Kardashian’s selfie fail, and the awkwardness of Ant and Dec in general, at least we’ll get a day’s worth of chats out of it.

Check out the list of winners below, along with some interesting footage of other parts of the night:
