Rihanna made sure her first big performance since ANTI was one to remember. Utilizing projection technology that made her look like a dancing graphic, Rih brought out both of the LP's guest stars: SZA for "Consideration" and then Drake for "Work." Visually, it was stunning and something never before seen at the BRIT Awards, or any award show for that matter.
After David Bowie was remembered by a heartfelt eulogy from Annie Lennox and Gary Oldman, the rock icon's longtime band powered through instrument-only takes on a slew of hits including "Space Oddity," "Ziggy Stardust," "Let's Dance," "Rebel Rebel," "Fame" and "Under Pressure," as classic Bowie footage was shown onscreen.
Donning humongous hair, the Best British Female nominee performed an impressive medley of her hits that spotlighted her emotive, raspy timbre. She started centerstage with just herself in the spotlight, before an army of energetic backup dancers joined her for an exciting grand finale. If people had yet to discover the newcomer, they definitely knew her after this showing.
