Ed Sheeran, Drake And Ariana Grande Win Big At The BRIT Awards

Ed Sheeran, Drake and Ariana Grande were among the big winners at the BRIT Awards, the U.K. equivalent of the Grammys, which were held Wednesday in London.

Ed took home the BRITs Global Success award, Ariana nabbed the International Female Solo Artist trophy, and Drake was crowned the International Male Solo Artist.

Other winners Beyoncé and Jay-Z – aka The Carters – for International Group, and Little Mix for British Video for their song "Woman Like Me," featuring Nicki Minaj.

Pink was honored with the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award, making her the first international artist to have that honor bestowed upon her.

Pink capped the show with an epic performance of some of her biggest hits. The singer kicked off the medley with her latest single, "Walk Me Home" – which she had just released hours earlier – singing in a fuzzy robe as she made her way from a dressing room to the stage. Switching to a billowy red feather cloak, Pink descended upon center stage in an aerial hoop for "Just Like Fire," which included plenty of flames. She also sang "Just Give Me a Reason," "Try" and "What About Us."

Bastille’s Dan Smith joined for "Just Give Me a Reason," filling in for fun.’s Nate Ruess, with the pair also accompanied by a massive choir.

The night opened with a high-octane performance from Hugh Jackman performing "The Greatest Show" from the blockbuster hit movie, The Greatest Showman.

Other performances included:

  • George Ezra performed "Shotgun" with his acoustic guitar.
  • Little Mix performed "Woman Like Me" joined by Ms Banks and a slew of dancers.
  • Jorja Smith performed "Don’t Watch Me Cry."
  • Calvin Harris brought a host of huge stars out for a medley of hits, starting with Rag’n’Bone Man, then Sam Smith and Dua Lipa.
  • Jess Glynne brought a gang of women to remove their make up on stage en-masse as she performed "Thursday."
  • The 1975 took to the stage to perform "Sincerity Is Scary."
Ariana Grande Celebrates Her Billboard Milestone On 'Late Late Show'

Ariana Grande made a surprise visit to The Late Late Show with James Corden Tuesday night, much to the delight of some unsuspecting guests.

Ariana came out unannounced and sang with the TNT Boys, a young boy band trio from the Philippines who previously performed at James Corden’s other hosting gig, The World’s Best. The boys were so floored by the moment they could barely get through their rendition of "And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going" from Dreamgirls as Ariana sang along.

The trio, made up of Keifer Sanchez, 15, Mackie Empuerto, 14, and Francis Concepcion, 13, were beside themselves. Ariana gently nudged the boys to complete the song between hugs, while also offering some vocal support throughout the soaring Broadway track.

"I’m obsessed with you guys, you’re so incredible," Grande told the boys after they’d finished, which left them dumbfounded all over again.

"Is this a dream?" Concepcion asked while playfully slapping himself in the face.

Afterward, Ariana chatted with Corden about her history-making day, becoming the first artist to simultaneously hold the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 since The Beatles did it in 1964.

"I think it’s so funny. I thought it was hilarious. When I woke up I thought it was like an edit, like that my fans made. I thought it was a joke! It’s really wild. My mom and I were driving around listening to The Beatles all day and I was like, ‘This is crazy…this is so weird!’"

She jokingly added, "I’ll go away after this. I’ll take a break, I promise!" Asked what she planned to do to celebrate such a milestone achievement, Ariana confessed she doesn’t have much of a personal life these days. "Well, honestly, I was so excited you asked me to do this today cause I usually don’t have anything to do, other than just make songs and, like, rehearse and that’s it," she declared, adding, "personal life still non-existent."

Ariana of course ended her engagement to Pete Davidson late last year, and addressed him and other past loves in her current No. 3 hit – formerly No. 1 – "thank u, next."
