One Direction and Adele Conquer Brits
This week saw the return of one of the biggest nights in the music calender – the Brit Awards! And it seems a number of Fun Kids favourites did very well indeed!
So here’s our quick round-up of the night’s highlights in case you missed it or just want to enjoy it again.
One Direction were presumably ‘Up All Night’ celebrating yesterday as they went home from the annual music ceremony with their first ever Brit Award!
Despite only releasing their first single in September of last year, the boys have already received a prize at the UK’s biggest music awards. Nominated for ‘Best British Single’, their debut track ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ beat off competition from pop royalty Olly Murs, JLS and Pixie Lott, amongst others, to claim the prize.
The band was clearly delighted with their success. Harry soon took to Twitter to tell their many fans ‘That was for all of you. Thank you so much. You’re amazing. Now…. Woooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!’
Elsewhere on the night, Adele continued her award-winning run by following up success at the Grammy awards in America with two Brits.
She won ‘Best Female Solo Artist’ and the top prize of the night, ‘Album of the Year’, for ’21’. She also wowed the crowd with a rendition of her hit single ‘Someone Like You’.
Other awards went to Rihanna, Coldplay and Bruno Mars, whilst singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran claimed two awards – ‘Best Male Solo Artist’ and ‘British Breakthrough Artist’, as well as performing his song ‘Lego House’ on stage.
It wasn’t all doom and gloom for Olly Murs either. Despite missing out on the ‘Best Single’ award, he did get to perform ‘Heart Skips A Beat’ live on the Brits stage with Rizzle Kicks, wowing the crowd with tens of female dancers! Lucky Olly!
But for the many 1D fans out there, here’s a reminder of why they won the award for ‘Best British Single’…
