Meanwhile, Coldplay opened the Brit Awards last night with a rendition of 'Charlie Brown', raising the curtain on the biggest night in British pop.

The performance at a packed O2 Arena in London was followed by a brief video tribute to Whitney Houston, whose death in California on the eve of the Grammys this month shocked the music world.

Florence and the Machine was next on stage before the first award of the night singing 'No Light No Light'.

Ed Sheeran also performed on the night alongside Adele, Rihanna, Noel Gallagher, Bruno Mars and Blur.

Florence and the Machine and Coldplay were nominated twice.
