And Adele’s dulcet tones have such a pull that they’ve even been listened to in outer space, as proven by astronaut Tim Peake when he presented her with the Global Success gong during the live BRIT Awards ceremony on Wednesday night. Kudos, though, to Adele for winning four times at the Brit Awards 2016, for kissing Justin Bieber, and… for getting away with that censored acceptance speech.
“To all the other girls who were nominated, thank you for letting me be in your company, you’re all unbelievable, you’re all incredible and it’s a privilege to be beside you”.
James Bay was named British Male Solo Artist, while Coldplay won British Group.
He concluded his speed by saying: “David you were mortal, but your potential was super human, and your remarkable music is living on”.
