Adele dominates Brit Awards
Adele nabbed four Brit Awards.
"Not bad for a girl from Tottenham that don't like flying," said the singer while accepting her global success award. Adele's other wins for the night were British female solo artist of the year, British single of the year for her song Hello, and album of the year for 25.
The singer's speech thanked the audience for widely accepting 25, which was released almost five years after her last album. "To come back after so long away and be so warmly received is really lovely, thank you so much," she said.
She also used her acceptance speech to support Kesha.
