Adele, Dave, Ed Sheeran, Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa were among the winners at the last night’s 2022 BRIT Awards.

Adele dominated the event, taking home three awards at the London ceremony. The singer won Artist Of The Year, Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year. Dave won the Best Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act, while Ed Sheeran was awarded Songwriter Of The Year and Dua Lipa won Best Pop/R&B Act.

Last night’s event was hosted by Mo Gilligan for the first time, while the show did not hand out trophies in gendered categories. Instead, they were replaced by Artist Of The Year and International Artist Of The Year fields.

Four new genre categories were also been added – Alternative/Rock Act, Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act, Dance Act and Pop/R’N’B Act – which fans were able to vote for via TikTok.

Adele, Sheeran, Little Simz and Dave led the nominations going into the night with four nods each. All of the aforementioned artists were in the running for Artist Of The Year, alongside Sam Fender, with Adele taking home the trophy. She also picked up the awards for Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year.

The ceremony featured performances from the likes of Fender, Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Adele, Dave, Holly Humberstone and Little Simz. Doja Cat was due to perform too, but was forced to cancel her appearance after members of her crew tested positive for COVID-19.
