Adele has led the winners at tonight’s (February 8) BRIT Awards 2022, taking home three awards at the prestigious ceremony.

The music icon triumphed as she picked up Artist Of The Year, Album Of The Year for ’30’ and Song Of The Year for ‘Easy On Me’.

Her victory in the first category made her the first ever artist to pick up the award, after the show ditched trophies in gendered categories for the first time – replaced by Artist Of The Year and International Artist Of The Year fields.

Four new genre categories were also added for the first time – Alternative/Rock Act, Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act, Dance Act and Pop/R’N’B Act – which fans were able to determine via a TikTok vote.
