Lewis Capaldi, Lizzo and Stormzy were among the first to arrive on the red carpet for the 2020 Brit Awards, aka, the biggest night in British pop music.

Hosted by comedian Jack Whitehall, this year's ceremony featured performances from the likes of Stormzy, Billie Eilish and Harry Styles, who gave an emotional performance of his ballad, Falling.
