Brit Awards 2017


This year's Brit Awards ceremony graced our television screens last night, with the biggest names in the UK pop industry all gathered for an evening of winners and woes. The coveted statuettes took on a different shape this year, thanks to a quirky design by Zaha Hadid – although they look like they'd been left out in the sun and melted to us!



The late, undeniably great David Bowie took home two of the main prizes, which serves as a fitting tribute to a man who had such a tremendous effect on British pop music throughout his outstanding career.



The show was as glitzy and glamorous as ever. But if you were hoping for some of the traditional mishaps that have made headlines in past events, then you won't have been disappointed. One particularly memorable incident occurred when a backing dancer, dressed as a house, fell off the stage during Katy Perry's performance!
