BRIT Awards 2017 full winners list

HOLLY Willoughby feared she would miss The BRIT Awards as she got stuck in traffic on her way to the O2 Arena.

The four-member band, who found fame on television show "The X Factor", opened the awards show, which mainly honours British music and artists, with a lively performance of the song.

The 1975 had been up against Little Mix, Bastille, Radiohead and Biffy Clyro during this year's awards.

Last year's Brit Awards, like last year's Oscars, came under fire from people who accused it of a lack of diversity because of there being so few nominations for BAME artists.

Grime artists Stormzy and Kano were also award contenders, reflecting the growing artistic and commercial clout of the distinctly British rap genre.

The annual ceremony, held at London's O2 Arena, kicked off with early arrivals from the Scottish rock band, who are nominated for British Group, and Critics' Choice victor Rag'n'Bone Man.

Little Mix's first ever BRIT award win tops a fantastic 12 months for the girls who have now been together for five years.

This year's list is more diverse, with chanteuse Emeli Sande, soul singer Michael Kiwanuka and singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas among non-white British contenders, along with the three grime performers.
