The award show got off to a bang with a spectacular theatrical performance from Ed Sheeran with a new version of Bad Habits, for which he was joined by special guests Bring Me The Horizon. The 2022 BRIT Awards was truly Adele’s night and she performed a stripped-back version of her power-ballad I Drink Wine before winning three awards, bringing her complete tally of BRIT trophies to 12 since winning the first-ever Rising Star award in 2008.
Adele was presented with the prestigious Mastercard Album of the Year for the third time, having won for her previous two albums in 2012 and 2016, the only solo artist in BRITs history to have won this award three times. The songstress also became the first-ever recipient of the BRITs’ inaugural Artist of the Year award, with her third victory claimed with the win for Song of the Year for Easy On Me.
