Adele wowed the crowd attending 2012 BRIT Awards at the O2 Arena on Tuesday night, February 21 with her flawless performance. Wearing a classy black knee-length dress, the "Someone Like You" crooner belted out her hit single "Rolling in the Deep".
The singer won two kudos that night, Best British Female and Best British Album. She was interrupted when delivering her acceptance speech for the latter prize, and she flashed her middle finger to show her dismay. The obscene gesture was not for fans, but "for the suit," so she explained.
Other musical guests at the event were Rihanna, Noel Gallagher and Blur. Riri sang "We Found Love", the former Oasis member performed "What a Life" with his band High Flying Birds, while the Outstanding Achievement Award recipient delivered a medley of their hits, including "Girls and Boys", "Song 2" and "Parklife".
"Thank you very much. The last time we were here was 17 years ago and what happened that night seemed to have a really profound effect on our lives so it's very nice to come back and say thank you very much for this honor, but there are an awful lot of people I need to thank so I hope you can bear with me," Damon Albarn said on behalf of his band upon receiving the special honor.
