Adele has stormed back to the throne of British music after sweeping the board at the Brit awards. The singer took home four trophies including best British female solo artist and album of the year. Coldplay also picked up a top honour.
David Bowie has posthumously been awarded the Brit award for British male solo artist. The Brits also remembered George Michael, who died on Christmas Day last year aged 53, and Leonard Cohen.
The British pop star and former singer of Wham!, George Michael, has died at the age of 53, according to his publicist. The global superstar reportedly "passed away peacefully at home" in England.
