Prominent music icons filled the London's O2 arena for the 37th Brit Awards. David Bowie's stardom continue to shine even after his death.  On the U.K's major music awards show, the late British singer became victorious so many times. To honor the veteran singer, he won as Best British Solo Artist and gained the British Album of the Year for Blackstar.

Bowie's son Duncan Jones is the one who accepts the best British album award on behalf of his father. Meanwhile, it was the lead actor Michael Hall in the musical Lazarus who collects Bowie's British Male Solo Artist award. 

For the Best British Group, the indie band "The 1975", received their first-ever Brit Award beating Bastille, Biffy Clyro, Radiohead and Little Mix. The band provide a standout performance with the collaboration with "The Sound. "Meanwhile, failing to take home the Best British Group award, Little Mix didn't go home empty-handed after clinching the Best British Single award for their hit "Shout Out to My Ex." The British girl group battled with Zayn's "Pillow Talk" and Rihanna's "This is What You Came For."

According to Billboard, Adele is not there to accept the Global Success Award which she holds for the second time. Whilst, Drake sealed the International Male Solo Artist award and his matching part for female category is the American singer, songwriter Beyoncé to whom both are not present in the awarding.

The highlights of the awarding ceremony is when Coldplay's Chris Martin gives tribute to George Michael singing a passionate and classical version of "A Different Corner." Another performance that brought tears to eyes of many is the tribute song from Michael's former Wham! Bandmate Andrew Ridgeley.

As reported by Telegraph live highlights also included Bruno Mars who performing "That's What I Like". American singer Katy Perry and Skip Marley performed "Chained to the Rhythm", which creates a major controversy by including two dancing skeletons to signify Theresa May and Donald Trump. The show closed with songs from Robbie Williams, who received the Brits Icon award.
