The 2013 Brit Awards came and went hours ago and it turns out that it has been an amazing year for “the voice of the Olympics”, Emeli Sandé. The Scottich singer overtook Adele’s “21” when her album, “Our Version of Events” became the bestselling album of 2012 in September. Emeli went on to accept trophies for “British Album of the Year” and “Best Female Solo Artiste” at the 2013 Brit Awards earlier today.
Grammy award-winning Mumford & Sons too bagged a Brit award for “Best Group”, alongside Lana Del Ray and One Direction, who won “International Female Solo Artiste” and “BRITs Global Success Award” respectively. As a matter of fact, the One Direction boys were so overjoyed with their win that they jumped up from their seats and triumphantly hugged each other!
