The 2011 Brit Awards have just wrapped up over in the UK, with plenty of surprise winners collecting their gongs on stage at London’s O2 Arena.
Tinie Tempah and Arcade Fire were the big winners of the night, each picking up two gongs, while Laura Marling won the award for ‘British Female Solo Artist’ and Plan B won for ‘British Male Solo Artist’.
Take That took out the gong for the ‘British Group’ and performed their latest single ‘Kidz’, complete with an army of soldiers.
And though teen star Justin Bieber may have missed out at the Grammys, he didn’t miss out at the Brits, winning the award for ‘International Breakthrough Act’.
