Brit Awards 2020 winners list: Lewis Capaldi, Billie Eilish, Tyler, The Creator and more

The Brit Awards are always a coveted gong to win, and 2020’s awards show inducted a few new faces into the elusive Brit Award winners club.

Lewis Capaldi scooped two of the four awards he was nominated for on the night, while album of the year went to Dave.

Billie Eilish, Mabel, Stormzy, Foals and Tyler, The Creator topped off the winners of the night, with all of them leaving with one more accolade to add to the shelf.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the Brits without some pointed acceptance speeches, and Tyler used his to call out Theresa May for banning him from the UK back in 2015.

She had invoked an anti-terrorism legislation to prevent him from entering the UK for a performance at Reading and Leeds festival five years ago, which he pointed out in his speech.

He told the crowd: ‘Uhh thank you guys. Uhh, yeah. Uhh shout out to all the British funk from the 80s that I try to copy.

‘Shout out Sony and Colombia for always having my back, thank you. Shout out to all the UK boys that keep this place fun for me at night.

‘And I wanna give a special shout out to someone who I hold dear to my heart, who made it where I couldn’t come to this country five years ago.

‘I know she’s at home p**sed off. Thank you Theresa May.’

Billie Eilish also thanked the crowds for her win, saying it helped her to stop feeling ‘hated’. She explained: ‘Also want to just say something I was thinking about two seconds ago… I’ve felt very hated recently.

‘When I was on the stage and I saw you guys all smiling at me… it genuinely made me want to cry and I want to cry now.’
