BRIT Awards 2016: Adele, Tame Impala win big at BRIT Awards 2016

Adele, Tame Impala win big at BRIT Awards 2016

Catch up with all the winners from an emotional night at the O2 Arena.

There we have it - the Brit Awards 2016 winners have been announced in full, at a glitzy, tear-strewn ceremony at London’s O2 Arena.

There were no dramatic cape incidents to report on, this year. Everything went according to plan, in all honesty. Adele picked up a gazillion awards following the release of her record-breaking ‘25’. Hearts were broken in an emotional and actually very fitting David Bowie tribute, led by Gary Oldman and a fantastic performance for Lorde.

Still, some surprises emerged. Tame Impala picked up Best International Group. Father John Misty almost stole the show with his sulk face. And James Bay kept that sodding hat glued to his head.
