Croydon Grime artist Stormzy and London singer-songwriter Dua Lipa led the charge at the Brit Awards, winning two prizes each.
Stormzy fended off competition in the British male solo artist and British album categories, while Lipa scored the British female solo artist gong and the breakthrough act prize.
Stormzy fell to the ground in shock while in the audience as he was announced the winner of the British album of the year award.
Accepting his prize, the rapper told the audience:
"Firstly, I always give all the glory to God, God this is all you, this is all you God.
"I know that a lot of people, when I give the glory to God, it seems such a strange thing, but if you know God, you know it's all him."
He thanked his family and his team, and added:
"Gang Signs And Prayer, this was the hardest thing, I've never worked on something like this in my life, I've never given my entire being, I didn't have anything left after... we made something I feel that is undeniable, that I can stand by today."
Dua Lipa paid tribute to the power of women as she picked up awards for British female solo artist and British breakthrough act.
The singer-songwriter, who is the first female in the history of the Brits to be nominated for five awards in one year, picked up the first gong of the night.
The 22-year-old was one of the first to arrive on the red carpet before the ceremony, and carried a white rose in support of victims of sexual harassment and assault.
The star paid tribute to women who had been on the Brit Awards stage before her as she collected her prize from pop princess Kylie Minogue and Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown.
After thanking her record label, her crew, her family, friends and fans, she thanked "every single female that has been on this stage before me, that has given girls like me - not just girls in the music industry - but girls in society, a place to be inspired by, to look up and have allowed us to dream this big."
She added: "Here's to more women on these stages, more women winning awards and more women taking over the world."
