David Bowie wins two awards at 2017 BRIT Awards (VIDEO)The BRIT Awards 2017 were held at London’s O2 Arena on February 22. The ceremony was hosted by Emma Willis alongside Dermot O’Leary.

David Bowie posthumously won Best British Album for "Blackstar", with the award presented by Noel Gallagher.

Accepting the award, Bowie’s son Duncan Jones said: “I lost my dad last year but I also became a dad. He always supported people who are a little bit strange or different. This award is for all the kooks and those who make the kooks.”

Bowie was also posthumously named Best British Male Solo Artist, beating Craig David, Skepta, Kano and Michael Kiwanuka.

Emeli Sandé won Best British Female Solo Artist, beating Ellie Goulding, Lianne La Havas, Anohni and NAO. Presented her award by David Tennant, Sandé said: “Wow, thank you so much to the creator of all things.”

Best British Group was won by The 1975, who beat Bastille, Biffy Clyro, Radiohead and Little Mix. Accepting the award, frontman Matty Healy said: “This is mental. We’ve been a band since we were 13, for 14 years now. The only thing we tried to do with our album was to get to that place… And I just want to say… if you have a platform, don’t [stay in your lane].”

Rag N’ Bone Man won Best British Breakthrough Act.
