Brit Awards 2004 winners
Last updated 17 February 2004

Check out the winners of the Brit awards 2004...

See the stars arriving...

The Darkness

The Darkness were the big winners at tonight's Brit Awards (Tuesday) - they picked up Best British Group, Best British Album as well as Best Rock Act. In true rock style, Justin was quite cocky about their win:

"This is a real privilege, a tremendous honour and a great achievement ... and I have to say, we probably are the best British group."

Have your say - the winners, the performers, the speeches...

Cat Deeley

The bash was hosted by Cat Deeley who appeared on stage in a top hat and fishnets riding a huge champagne bottle, shouting simply "the booze is back".

The Black Eyed Peas kicked off the bash with the stage turned into a diner before Justin Timberlake picked up the first award for the night for Best International Male. He later won International Album.

Chris Moyles managed to get on stage as he promised - he presented the British Breakthrough Act (as voted for by Radio 1 listeners) to Busted. They also picked up Best Pop Act. They've been to the Brits before, but it was totally different for them this time round:

"It's crazy, we came here two years ago, just as like visitors of the record label as observers, as citizens, and now we walk through and people know who we are."


Dido also picked up two for Best Single ('White Flag') and Best Female Solo Artist. She wasn't there to pick up the awards and thanked fans via videolink.

Daniel Bedingfield accepted his Best Male Solo Artist on the phone - he's still recovering from his car accident in New Zealand.

Lemar took home Best Urban Act, Basement Jaxx won Best Dance Act, International Group went to The White Stripes, 50 Cent took International Breakthrough Artist and Beyonce was emotional in taking International Female Solo Artist.
