Adele shines at Brit Awards: Four awards and a dazzling performance

"We're all huge fans up here", Peake said in a recorded message from the International Space Station, adding that the superstar singer had "taken the world by storm".

Last night's BRIT awards belonged to Adele, who took home four gongs for Best British Female Solo Artist, Best British Single for "Hello", the British Album of the Year for 25, and the Global Success award. I can't work out if I'm crying because of that video or because Tim Peake did it. "She's taken the world by storm and is a true global icon".

She thanked her fans too adding: "For people to be so kind to me is fantastic, I was not expecting this one at all".

The night was full of shout outs, with Coldplay dedicating its win to musicians in refugee camps, and Adele recognizing Kesha during her first acceptance speech.

The show also featured an emotional tribute to David Bowie, led by Annie Lennox and his friend Gary Oldman. "But your potential was superhuman and your remarkable music is living on". "I thought you were going to set us on fire, though, Justin".

New Zealand singer Lorde resumed Life on Mars on stage with the band that accompanied Bowie.

Winning four major awards means Adele has become the most successful artist in one year since Blur in 1995.

Adele accepts the Global Success award at the Brit Awards 2016 at The O2 Arena on February 24, 2016 in London, England.

She said: "Thank you so much, to come back after so long away and be so warmly received is really lovely, thank you so much".

And she got another prize: a quick kiss on her way to the stage from Justin Bieber, who performed two songs and picked up an award for best worldwide male.

This year's Brit Awards saw a host of serious fashion failures - but there were a few exceptions. The band was awarded with the "Best International Group Award". "Absolutely blown my mind, thank you darlings".

Adele's comments came during a busy night for the "Hello" singer, who won the coveted "album of the year".

"All I ever wanted was to be able to make music without being afraid, scared, or abused", Kesha said Wednesday on Facebook.

Bay was back onstage as he was presented with best British male artist by Kylie Minogue which he said was "insane". The other nominees were Amy Winehouse, Florence + The Machine, Jess Glynne and Laura Marling.

British breakthrough act - Catfish And The Bottlemen.

The company last month saw its stock prices soar thanks to the release of their quarterly earnings report that was greatly helped by the release of Adele's album 25, which has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide.
