Last night the 2012 BRIT Awards happened, though you most likely knew that anyway.

Just in case you missed the action, these are the highlights from the night:

  1. Adele had her acceptance speech cut short, leading her to stick up her middle finger. This also caused an official apology from ITV/BRITs, not for her M.I.A. style reaction, but for the fact that they cut her short. Fair enough.
  2. Bruno Mars is very small.
  3. Blur played some songs.
  4. People don't like James Corden very much. Understandable.
  5. What is Ed Sheeran? A lotion? Answers on a postcard.
