Brit Awards 2017: All The Red Carpet Hits And Misses

Katie RamirezFeb 23, 2017

The BRITs 2017 are held at London's O2 Arena, airing live in the United Kingdom on ITV from 7:30pm.

Little Mix opened the show at London's O2 Arena with "Shout Out To My Ex".

EMELI Sandé has bagged the first BRIT Award of the night, winning best British Female Solo Artist.

The 1975 is also up for British Album of the year for their latest release I Like It When You Sleep For You Are Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It and are set to take the stage for a performance.

Healy told entertainers with a platform not to heed advice to "stay in your lane when it comes to social issues".

Adele was recognised with the global achievement award - given to the British artist with the biggest overseas success.

Last year's Brit Awards, like last year's Oscars, came under fire from people who accused it of a lack of diversity because of there being so few nominations for BAME artists.

Meanwhile, Little Mix dedicated their British Single of the Year award at the BRITs to their exes.

The awards, a showcase for British sound and style with a sprinkling of big-name worldwide acts, have been accused of failing to represent the industry's ethnic diversity.

Other performers during this year's ceremony included The 1975, Little Mix and Chris Martin, who paid touching tribute to George Michael.

Grime artists Stormzy and Kano are also awards contenders, reflecting the growing artistic and commercial clout of the distinctly British rap genre.

The 29-year-old soul star beat off competition from Anohni, Ellie Goulding, Lianne La Havas, and Nao to win her fourth BRIT Award.

Luckily, Holly made it in time, arriving on the red carpet ahead of the ceremony with just enough time to pose for pictures.
