The Brits 2015 was certainly a brilliant night for Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran, who picked up more gongs following their Grammys triumphs earlier this month, including album of the year for Sheeran and British Global Success for Smith.


Paloma Faith scooped her first win, for British Female Solo, as did Taylor Swift, for International Female, while favourites including Foo Fighters and One Direction also went home happy.

The night was jam-packed with entertainment, from an exclusive Kanye West performance to a rather dramatic Madonna finale, with Ant and Dec doing a superb job on hosting duties.
