The BRIT Awards—England's boozier, funnier and charmingly sloppier version of the Grammys (hey, there's an open bar, okay?)—just wrapped up at London's O2 Arena and the winners are in: soul siren Emeli Sande and indie-folk singer-songwriter Ben Howard, both newcomers, lead the pack with two awards each. Sande nabbed the night's biggest prize, taking home the Best British Album statue (complete with polka-dots designed by Damien Hirst).
Other notable winners: Frank Ocean, who nabbed Best International Male Solo Artist; Lana Del Rey, who won Best International Female Solo Artist; Coldplay, the home court heroes who took Best British Live Act; and the Black Keys, who nabbed Best International Group (accepted on behalf of the Ohio duo by a humble Dave Grohl). Hey, our predictions weren't too far off mark!
The two-hour show was packed with performances from Muse, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift and One Direction. Swift also presented for Best British Female Solo Artist (winner: Sande), which produced the night's best TV editing: cut straight to her ex-boyfriend, 1D's Harry Styles. Snap!
