One Direction, Arctic Monkeys Clean Up At 2014 BRIT Awards
See who else won big & performed at Britain's biggest music night!
For the first time EVER, the 2014 BRIT Awards (aka the UK's biggest night in music) decided to stream their entire show live off YouTube, which meant that if you had an Internet connection, you could watch the entire thing. Seeing as we're not located in Britain, it was a real treat to stream the awards show right from our desks, and we got to check out the biggest and best acts in the UK right from our computers. Pretty cool!
Taking place on February 19th London's O2 arena, it was definitely a night filled with fun and surprises. With a list of star-studded performers throughout the evening, how could it not be? Beyonce opened the night with a stunning rendition of "XO", while Lorde, AlunaGeorge and Disclosure performed a unique mashup of "Royals" and "White Noise". Katy Perry went full-on Queen Of The Nile with her "Dark Horse" spectacle, and Ellie Goulding showed off her drum skills in a dual performance of "I Need Your Love" and "Burn".
Other notable performances came from Bruno Mars, who did his best synchronized dance to "Treasure" with his crew, as well as Pharrell and Nile Rodgers coming together to perform "Get Lucky" and "Happy". When it came to British performers, Bastille and Rudimental put "Pompeii" and "Waiting All Night" together, showcasing the budding talent from both acts respectively.
