The 1975’s performance was one of the hits of the night

How could it not be? The band recreated ‘The Sound’ video live, flashing up negative comments like “punch-your-TV obnoxious” on the screen both on TV and in the arena. Loads of people thought they’d been hacked, which guitarist Adam Hann set straight.

No ITV wasn’t hacked. Lol

hands down best thing about the Brits was the totally amazing/lols @the1975 performance & @Skepta fucking CRUSHING IT!!! 🙌🏻🌟💫

— CHARLI XCX (@charli_xcx) February 22, 2017

Flash cards on @the1975 Brit set is genius

— Oliver Sykes (@olobersyko) February 22, 2017

Everyone was happy for them picking up the award for British Group too

Especially their labelmates and former touring pals Wolf Alice

— joel dilla (@joeldilla) February 23, 2017

— joel dilla (@joeldilla) February 23, 2017

Congratulations lads. Well deserved! @the1975 @jamieoborne @Truman_Black

Skepta had a big night yet again

He reunited with his pal Goldie following the VO5 NME Awards 2017 last week, performed ‘Shutdown’ and caught some people’s eye…

More life my brothers @Skepta x @Stormzy1 #BRITs2017 is ours ❤

— olly (@alexander_olly) February 22, 2017

I only socialise with the crew and the Gang. #BRITSAFTERPARTYGANG

— Tinie Tempah (@TinieTempah) February 23, 2017

Stormzy had the time of his life too

But his collaboration wasn’t the highlight of his night, apparently

Performing with Ed was one of the best moments of my entire life however meeting @Maisie_Williams made my night, legend ❤️ #StillGassed

— 24/02 (@Stormzy1) February 23, 2017

His performance drew him compliments across the board, while Victoria Coren Mitchell used it as an opportunity to post this amazing photo…

Here I am with Stormzy and some morris dancers as usual.

— Victoria Coren M. (@VictoriaCoren) February 22, 2017

The @edsheeran @Stormzy1 and the @BrunoMars performances tonight were out of this world #BRITs2017

— Dappy (@TheDappy) February 22, 2017

Bradley Walsh’s name was on everybody’s lips

And not just because of his red carpet love-in with Stormzy.

Did Bradley Walsh just cuddle rag n bone man at the brits?!

— Jessie Ware (@JessieWare) February 22, 2017

One baby popstar left not best pleased with the results

To be fair, if you’re not nominated beforehand you’re probably not going to leave the ceremony with an award in your hands. Logic, Conor.

Leaving the brits!!
Once again awardless…
And nominationless…

Fuck this I’m getting drunk.

— Conor Maynard (@ConorMaynard) February 22, 2017

Robbie Williams’ closing set didn’t go down very well…

Maybe it’s because he didn’t play any bangers?!

Just to prove the Brits know how to have a laugh…

Ladies and Gentlemen…

Robbie Williams.

And the tribute to George Michael was resoundingly recognised as a beautiful, heartfelt moment

His former Wham! bandmates Andrew Ridgeley, Pepsi and Shirlie paid their respects to their late friend ahead of Chris Martin’s musical tribute.

What beautiful & moving tribute to #georgemichael #BRITs

— Phillip Schofield (@Schofe) February 22, 2017

So proud of my beautiful mum, Pepsi & Andrew and very thankful to the @Brits for putting on such a lovely tribute.
