Stormzy has been praised by Jeremy Corbyn and fellow Labour MPs after he asked Theresa May "where's the money for Grenfell?" in his live performance at the Brit Awards.

He triumphed over fellow nominees Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Rag'n'Bone Man and Loyle Carner to be named British Male Solo Artist.

"MPs sniff coke, we just smoke a bit of cannabis, they'll get me for this, so be woke ..."

When she was named British breakthrough act, she took her younger sister and brother on stage with her, declaring: "I told them to believe in magic because it's real".

Last night's Brit Awards witnessed one of British music's most iconic moments.

In a politically charged rap, Stormzy sang: "Yo Theresa May, where's the money for Grenfell?".

The 22-year-old singer-songwriter thanked "every single female that has been on this stage before me, that has given girls like me - not just girls in the music industry - but girls in society, a place to be inspired by, to look up and have allowed us to dream this big".

Where was the Rev. Billy Graham's first sermon?
Spokesman Mark DeMoss told The Associated Press that Graham died Wednesday morning at his home in Montreat, North Carolina. Both Goldsmith and Ford were impressed with Graham's sense of humility, despite being known to millions around the world.

The show also saw Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher perform "Live Forever" in a tribute to the 22 victims of a suicide bombing attack on a venue hosting a concert by United States pop star Ariana Grande in Manchester last May.

Kendrick Lamar was named best worldwide male artist, receiving his award from football star Harry Kane, while Foo Fighters won the best global group category.

He also attacked the government saying "you criminals, and you got the cheek to call us savages".

Stormzy appeared overwhelmed as he accepted his first ever Brit - British male solo artist - fending off competition from Sheeran and Gallagher.

Guests were given white rose pins to wear for the ceremony at London's O2 Arena.

After winning best British band, Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn slurred his way through a weird acceptance speech, during which he made his feelings on Brexit particularly clear.

Following the silent protests at the Golden Globes and the Grammys, attendees of the 2018 Brit Awards were also handed white roses and pins as a sign of solidarity with victims of sexual assault. He was a surprise performer of the night that also featured performances from Lipa, Sheeran, Stormzy, Justin Timberlake, Smith, Ora and Foo Fighters.
