The 40th edition of the British Phonographic Industry is back and we're here to give you a quick rundown...

After a successful night at the O2 in London, here's the evening's biggest success stories! With incredible performances from the likes of Dave, Stormzy, Billie Eilish and Lewis Capaldi, the evening was not only a celebration of music but held a political undertone...

While the Foals used their winning speech to call for more female nominees and winners, Dave used his performance to highlight the victims of Grenfell Tower, media attacks on Meghan Markle and taking it back to the Windrush generation in an explosive political performance. 

Oh, and we cannot forget about Tyler The Creator calling out former British Prime Minister Theresa May for banning him from the UK for five years, but with the ban lifted he's celebrating his award for International Male Solo Artist!

Here's a list of the official winners of the evening:

Female Solo Artist - Mabel

Male Solo Artist - Stormzy

Album of the Year - Dave 'Psychodrama'

Best New Artist - Lewis Capaldi

Best Group - Foals

International Female Solo Artist - Billie Eilish
