Capital takes a look back at all of the live sets from last night's music spectacular.
Adele, Rihanna and Ed Sheeran were among some of the best of the performances at last night's BRIT Awards 2012.
The 'Rollin In The Deep' star made her live UK return following throat surgery last November and RiRi brought a splash of colour to the stage with buckets of paint being thrown around.
Blur performed the longest ever set at the ceremony forcing Adele to cut short her acceptance speech for Best Album and Bruno Mars gave a smooth and stylish rendition of 'Just The Way You Are'.
Capital is offering you a chance to look back at all of last night's performances below.
The British band won the award for Best Group on the night and gave a triumphant start to the evening with their latest single.

In typical Florence Welch style, she tore the roof of the O2 Arena with her distinctive and extremely powerful vocals. The screen was pushed back and allowed Florence, who was dressed in an elegant gown, to give a triumphant rendition of her hit song.

The Essex star brought a high energy display to the ceremony and was joined by Rizzle Kicks and 70 backing dancers for his song. The singer jumped out from the floor to stand atop a giant heart shaped Union Jack.

One of the biggest winners on the night, Ed gave an emotional performance of his single 'Lego House' at London's O2 arena. His stunning performance also featured the stage being lit up with bricks and a red built house appearing behind the singer.

The former Oasis man was joined on stage by Coldplay's Chris Martin for a rendition of his psychedelic number. Noel gave an injection of pure rock 'n' roll noise to the O2 arena on what was a very pop heavy evening. The singer-songwriter was also nominated for Male Solo Artist on the night.

Adele made her live UK return following throat surgery last November with a stomping performance of her hit single. The singer mirrored her performance at the Grammy Awards earlier this month and gave a powerful and professional set which got the audience on their feet in appreciation.

A smooth, stylish and always smiling Bruno gave a wonderfully lead rendition of his beautiful hit song. The star donned his best tuxedo which was matched by his backing band as he delicately and deliberately got the audience swooning over his performance.
Watch Bruno Mars perform 'Just The Way You Are' live at the BRIT Awards 2012 below:
The Bajan star took to the stage inside a perspex box whilst her backing dancers began throwing buckets of paint around. The singer stepped outside for an energetic dance routine before glitter and paper tumbled from the ceiling of London's O2 Arena.
Watch Rihanna perform 'We Found Love' live at the BRIT Awards 2012 below:
The Britpop legends picked up the award for Outstanding Contribution To Music on the night and gave the longest ever set in BRITs history at London's O2. Damon and co tore the roof off the arena with such classics as 'Song 2' and 'Boys & Girls' and were also joined by actor Phil Daniels for 'Parklife'. The performance also came under fire after it forced Adele to cut short her acceptance speech for Best Album on the night.
