Beyonce Knowles was one of the musicians who performed at the BRIT Awards. The diva took the stage at London's O2 Arena on Wednesday night, February 19 to deliver the first live television performance of her hit single "XO".
The queen looked gorgeous in a Vrettos Vrettakos gown studded with 140,000 blue zircon crystals. Before performing the song, she said onstage, "I'd like to dedicate this song to all my incredible fans. I love you all. Sing along with me tonight."
Lorde, who won the International Female Solo Artist at the event, also gave an amazing performance. Donning a floor-length sparkly black dress, the Kiwi singer teamed up with Disclosure to debut the new version of her breakthrough single "Royals".
Later in the performance, AlunaGeorge's Aluna Francis came to the stage, replacing Lorde, to perform her collaboration with the U.K. electronic duo, "White Noise".
Other interesting performances came from Bruno Mars and Katy Perry. After winning the International Male Solo trophy, the Hawaiian singer turned the stage into a dancefloor with the live rendition of "Treasure".
Meanwhile, Perry transformed into an Egyptian princess as she was joined by a bunch of back-up dancers to sing her latest single "Dark Horse" sans collaborator Juicy J. The same song was also performed by the pop singer at the Grammys in late January.
Britain's sweetheart Ellie Goulding also wowed the crowd at the event. Wearing a long white cape, she played her guitar while singing an acoustic version of her collaboration with DJ Calvin Harris, "I Need Your Love". She then traded the white dress for a sexy golden bra when singing another hit called "Burn".
