Adele bags Brit Music Award for best British female and best album

London , Wed, 22 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 22 (ANI): Adele, who won the award for best British female and best album for '21', has said that she is "so proud to be British".


The 23-year-old singer accepted the album award from George Michael and earned a standing ovation as she gave her acceptance speech.


"Nothing makes me prouder than coming here with six Grammys... I'm so proud to be British and flying the flag," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.


However, Adele ended the night by flipping her middle finger after her speech was cut off by the host James Corden in order to make way for a closing performance by 'Blur', prompting loud boos from the crowd.


She later apologised for the gesture.


Adele's win was a foregone conclusion after a year that has seen her break every record going.


'21' is the biggest-seller of the 21st century, shifting 17 million copies so far.


Ed Sheeran was another double winner, taking home best British male solo artist and best British breakthrough.


Sheeran built his fanbase as an unsigned act via Facebook and YouTube and scored a major hit with 'The A Team', the acoustic song he recorded in a student flat and put out with a video he made for under 20 pounds.


Coldplay opened the show and were later named best British group.


Best British single, the only award of the night chosen by a public vote, went to 'What Makes You Beautiful' by 'The X Factor' boyband 'One Direction'.


The international awards went to Bruno Mars (best male), Rihanna (best female) and Foo Fighters (best group). Lana Del Rey won best international breakthrough act.


Emeli Sande took home the Critics' Choice award, which marks out an artist tipped for success in 2012.


'Blur' received the Outstanding Contribution award.
