Monkeys snap up two BRITS but Bowie rules

The Arctic Monkeys won two awards, as did One Direction at the annual BRIT Awards at the O2 in London last night but an absent David Bowie stole the show, being named best British male - 30 years after he last won the prize. US superstars BeyoncĂ© and Prince were both at the show - the former performing and the latter giving best British Female award - won by Ellie Goulding. Other performers included The Arctic Monkeys, Bruno Mars (who won best International Male), Bastille (winner of Brtish Breakthrough Act), Rudimental and Katy Perry.
