Fresh off of their wins at the Grammy Awards, British rockers Mumford & Sons, and American Frank Ocean were among the artists who gathered in London at the O2 Arena on February 20 for the annual BRIT Awards. James Carden repeated his role as host of the gala event for the fourth time.

Some BRIT Award winners are selected by industry professionals; while others are chosen by fan votes.

Over the past few years the BRIT Awards have presented one of a kind statuettes designed by an artist; this year the brightly coloured polka dotted awards statues were created by Damien Hirst.

An international line up of artists performed at the BRITs that included opening act Muse, Robbie Williams, Justin Timberlake, One Direction, Taylor Swift, Ben Howard, Mumford & Sons, and closing out the show was last year's Critics Choice winner Emeli Sande.
