Final thoughts

The two-and-a-half-hour concert began with a breathtaking theatrical performance from Ed Sheeran, who performed a new edition of Bad Habits with special guests Bring Me The Horizon.

With medleys and music icons at the core of the BRITs on-stage performances, Anne-Marie and KSI, along with Digital Farm Animals, gave a show-stopping three-song set, while rock royalty Liam Gallagher took a helicopter to the O2 venue to present his latest track Everything's Electric.

Adele took home the major prize at the 2022 BRIT Awards. For Easy on Me, she won Artist of the Year, Mastercard Album of the Year, and Song of the Year. Her only defeat was in the fan-voted best pop/rock act category at BRIT Awards, which went to Dua Lipa.

Adele won both album and song of the year at the BRIT Awards for the third time. She won album of the year for 21 in 2012 and 25 in 2016. She is the only solo artist to win this award three times in BRIT's history. She is also only the second artist in BRIT's history, after Coldplay, to win this award three times in a row.

Ed Sheeran was named Songwriter of the Year at BRIT Awards for the first time. Inflo was named Producer of the Year, as previously stated. In the show's history, he is the first Black producer to win in that category. Inflo collaborated with Michael Kiwanuka and SAULT, as well as 2022 BRIT winners Adele and Little Simz.

This year, four new genre categories – Alternative/Rock Act, Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act, Dance Act, and Pop/R'N'B Act – were included for the first time at BRIT Awards, with fans voting on them via TikTok.
