Mastercard, who was the official sponsorship for the Brit Awards 2020, confused two of this year's nominees on social media.

In a now-deleted post, the sponsor's official Twitter account announced that a photo of FKA Twigs was Charli XCX.

Both artists were nominated for Best British Female Solo Artist alongside Mahalia, Freya Ridings and eventual winner Mabel, who took home the trophy 30 years to the day her mother also won a Brit.

This year's nominations were criticsed for being dominated by men, with only one British female artist nominated out of 25 available slots in mixed-gender categories

"I don't know whether to laugh or cry," one tweeter wrote in response.

This year’s ceremony, which celebrated the event's 40th anniversary, was presented by Jack Whitehall.

One of the ceremony's highlights included Dave adding lyrics to his song "Black", which saw him call Boris Johnson a "real racist" and criticised the UK media's treatment of Meghan Markle.

Lewis Capaldi won two awards and delivered a bizarre speech about Love Island and his grandmother while accepting the trophy for Song of the Year.

Other performers included Harry Styles, Stormzy and Billie Eilish, who sang new Bond theme No Time to Die in the track's live debut.
