The 2020 Brit Awards kicked off with a bang last night, as the biggest stars in music descended on London's O2 Arena.

Stormzy wowed the audience with an epic performance after winning Best British Male, while Billie Eilish stunned viewers with her debut performance of Bond theme, No Time To Die.

Earlier on in the evening, Lewis Capaldi swore during his acceptance speech, Mabel bagged the Female Solo Artist of the Year award and thanked mum Neneh Cherry, while Harry Styles - who also sported a black remembrance ribbon - delivered an emotional performance of his ballad, Falling.

Another touching moment saw Jack Whitehall pay tribute to the late Caroline Flack.

And before things kicked off, there was also the small matter of the red carpet - and you can see all the best pictures from it here.
