Comic Jack Whitehall presented and all got off to a very good start with Big Shaq's "Man's Not Hot" tune blasting out back stage and then on stage whilst Whitehall was wearing millions of puffer jackets: he really was hot!

Global Success

WINNER: Ed Sheeran

Well, that's all the awards given out! Did your fave artist or group get one?

Ed Sheeran performed "Supermarket Flowers", which we found very touching. Ariana Grande was supposed to perform at the BRITs this year, but could not make it, so Liam Gallagher filled in and paid tribute to those who lost their life's in the Manchester Terror Attack. American Rapper Kendrick Lamar also performed although the sex and drug references were muted by broadcaster ITV.

Overall, it was a great night to celebrate those in music. We will be posting more about the BRITs so keep an eye out on our social media pages. Like us on Facebook and Instagram: just search for "Hartley Productions Official" and keep checking back on the website:
