21:24 International Group was presented by Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl to The Black Keys, who couldn't be there and didn't have a video message, though I'm sure they'll be delighted with it!
21:22 Robbie Williams and James had a quick chat, about Robbie's experiences at the Brits and the fit-ness of Taylor Swift.
21:18 Taylor Swift took to the stage next to perform live. She performed her single Trouble with masked backing dancers, flames and a quick costume change; wonder how Mr Styles is feeling?
21:16 Tom Daley and Jonathon Ross presented the next Brit to Adele; Skyfall for Best British Single. Unfortunately Adele couldn't be at the Brits so a short video message from her was played.

20:16 James Corden took a break from the stage to chat to the not-yet drunk One Direction. Later 1D are performing their single for Comic Relief, which is currently number one in an amazing 63 countries. James also questioned Harry on which older member of the music industry he has his eye on.
20:14 Taylor Swift presented the first award for British Female Solo Artist to Emile Sandae, who is nominated for not one, not two, but THREE awards tonight. She accepted with a short but sweet acceptance speech.
