Adele and One direction were the big winners at last night's Brit Awards.

Emeli Sande also stole the show, taking home two of the prizes at the ceremony that celebrates British music.

One Direction were given a special global success award, while Adele won best single for 'Skyfall'.

Sande won best British female AND best British album for 'Our Version of Events', at the very glitzy ceremony at the O2 Arena in London.

There were some surprising winners on the night as well.

Singer Ben Howard, who not many people had heard of, won two awards - best British male and best British breakthrough.

And Mumford and Sons, who won a Grammy in America recently, were given the prize for best British group.

Adele couldn't make it to the show, as she is practicing for her performance at the Oscars, but she did send a video message to say thank you.
