The Brit Awards 2011 took place last night. For those who didn't watch the televised ceremony, you'll find a handy list of all the winners below.

Tinie Tempah was the big local winner on the night, taking home one gong for British Breakthrough Act, and another for his pop-grime collaboration with Labrinth, Pass Out, in the British Single category.

Arcade Fire led the foreign invasion scoring both International Group and International Album for The Suburbs.


So how did we do with our predictions? Out of the 11 guessable categories, we only got two wrong: British Female Solo Artist (we went for Ellie Goulding) and British Album (we went for Take That's Progress). Whether this says more about the predictability of the Brits - rather than our own perceived industry knowledge - is up for debate. Discuss…
