David Bowie's final album 'Blackstar' has won the Mastercard British Album Of The Year at the Brit awards - his second posthumous award of the night.
Picking up the award on behalf of his father was the star's son Duncan Jones who announced: "this award is for all the kooks and all the people who make the kooks".
In the touching speech Jones said: "I was spending a lot of time after getting over the shock, of trying to work out what would I want my son to know about his grandad and I think it would be the same thing most of my dad's fans have taken over the last 50 years.
"He's always been there supporting people who think they're a little bit weird or a little bit strange, a little bit different, he's always been there for them. So this award is for all the kooks and all the people who make the kooks."
One Direction's single 'History' has won the Brit's Best Artist Video Of The Year award.
Band member Liam Payne picked up the award on behalf of the group, saying: "We cannot believe we are still winning these."
A Tribe Called Quest have been named best International Group at the Brits.
Beyonce has been named best International Female Solo Artist at the Brit Awards.
Drake has won the award for best International Male Solo Artist at this year's Brits.

Adele has been given the Global Success Award at the 2017 Brits.
Speaking via video message the singer said receiving the award "means the world to me" as she thanked her fans for the "best year yet".
Little Mix's Shout Out to My Ex has won the Best British Single award at the Brits.
It is the first ever Brit award for the four-piece girl band who missed out last year despite being nominated twice.
Squealing with excitement the girls admitted on stage "we didn't think we were going to get it" before saying "cheers to our exes ... this is for you lads".
Former Wham! bandmate Andrew Ridgeley, accompanied by Pepsi and Shirlie, have paid tribute to George Michael at the Brits.

Fighting to hold back the tears Shirlie added: "George was like a brother to me. And will always be ..."
She said: "His wonderful way with words spoke to everyone. And his beautiful voice will live on forever as a gift to us all."
Coldplay's Chris Martin also played a musical tribute to Michael with a beautiful rendition of the late star's 'A Different Corner'.
Rag'n'Bone Man has been named Best British Breakthrough Act at the Brit Awards.
Thanking his fans he said: "I'm nearly speechless, for real."
He added: "This means a lot to me, I'm like ten years deep in this so, yeh, I don't know what else to say. I thought I was going to be able to reel off something but I can't, I'm speechless."
