Emeli Sande Brits

Brit Awards 2013

POSTED Feb 22, 2013

Emeli Sande and Ben Howard were among the big winners at this year's Brit Awards, taking home two trophies apiece.

Other winners included Mumford and Sons, who picked up the gong for Best British Group, and Coldplay, who collected the Best Live Act award.

"Make some noise for Coldplay!" shouted UK Olympic gymnast Louis Smith as he handed Chris Martin the gong...however , backstage his enthusiasm was a little more muted: "To be honest, I'm not a massive fan," he said. "I prefer reggae."
