The biggest night in the UK music calendar took place at the 02 Arena last night, the Brit Awards 2014!

The Brits is often a bit lame in terms of content, performances and shock factor, this year however we were NOT let down. Performances came from Katy Perry, Arctic Monkeys, Bastille and Rudimental, Disclosure and Lorde, Pharrell and Nile Rodgers, Bruno Mars and BLOODY BEYONCE!

It was a big night.

Winners included Ellie Goulding, Bastille, Rudimental, One Direction, Daft Punk amongst more.

There were really only two winners though…

1) Rita Ora in this dress. Wow.

Brit Awads Arrivals

2) Ella Eyre in this catsuit. Wow.

My fave performances were those two:

1) Bastille teaming up with Rudimental

2) Pharrell and Nile Rodgers
