Pop star Lady Gaga was the top winner at the BRIT awards this year scooping three trophies.
The Pokerface hitmaker won in the categories International Female Solo Artist, International Breakthrough Act and International Album for her The Fame, reported The Telegraph.
The 24-year-old singer was moved to tears when she went up to accept her third award.
"I was really excited about winning the first two awards, but this one means more because I worked so hard on this album for so long, and when I think about all that I went through and all the years of struggling and my fans - they were the first ones to recognise my abilities," said Gaga.
She later donned a white wig and mask and performed Telephone on the piano saying, "This is for Alexander McQueen" in tribute to the fashion designer who died last week.
Other winners at the February 16 event were singer Lily Allen for British Female Solo Artist and rapper Dizzee Rascal who bagged the Best British male solo artist award. Former pop group Spice Girls' rendition of Wannabe/Who Do You Think You Are in 1997 was named as the Best Brits performance of the last 30 years.
