Adele bagged four gongs at the 2016 BRIT Awards.

During a ceremony held at London’s O2 Arena, Adele picked up awards for ‘British Female Solo Artist’, ‘British Single’ for ‘Hello’, and ‘British Album Of The Year’ for ’25’.

The star – whose latest album ’25’ has topped the charts all over the world – was also honored with the ‘BRITs Global Success Award’, which was presented by astronaut Tim Peake live from the International Space Station.

However, Adele lost out to One Direction in the fan-voted category for ‘British Artist Video Of The Year’, which they won for ‘Drag Me Down’.

Justin Bieber, James Bay, Tame Impala, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Björk, and Jack Garratt also accepted awards at the ceremony, which was hosted by Ant and Dec.

Meanwhile, Coldplay – who kicked off the show with a performance of ‘Hymn For The Weekend’ – won the ‘British Group’ award for the fourth time, having previously accepted the gong in 2001, 2003 and 2012.

James Bay, Justin Bieber, Jess Glynne, Rihanna and Drake, and Little Mix all performed at the ceremony, while Adele closed the show with a performance of ‘When We Were Young’.
