Pop star Adele has dominated the second BBC Music Awards, winning best British artist and best live performance.

The singer could not attend the ceremony, but sent a message saying: "That's amazing. I've only just put out new music. I'm so chuffed."

Irish singer Hozier won song of the year for his hit Take Me To Church - the show's only public vote.

And One Direction opened the show, in one of their last public performances before taking a year-long break.

One Direction - Drag Me Down

The four boys played their number one hit Drag Me Down, to huge screams from the audience.

Other performers included Ellie Goulding, James Bay and Little Mix, who played their hit single Black Magic.

Taylor Swift won the best international artist prize - accepting her trophy, a golden vintage BBC microphone via a video from Australia.

"Oh my God, this is really heavy," said the star. "I really appreciate you guys shipping this out, because it must have cost a lot."

But the evening really belonged to Adele, whose new album 25 has become the year's biggest seller in the UK and USA after just three weeks on sale.

"Sorry I'm not there," said the star in her video message. "I'm absolutely gutted but thanks so much for my award. I hope you're all having a wonderful evening."
