Kicking off the show was an incredible opening performance from Hugh Jackman and The Greatest Showman.
Hosting the show was comedian Jack Whitehall and isn’t wasn’t long until he started taking swipes at some of the most famous people in the music industry.
Discussing what viewers were going to see during the show, Jack said: “And a girl band who resent split from their record label, yes their old boss Simon Cowell will be asking his surgeon to put a brave face on him if they win big tonight, Little Mix are in the building.
Simon and Little Mix parted ways back in November of last year when the girl group left his record label Syco.
But during a conversation with the Sun, he insisted he’d never fallen out with the band and they were the “hardest working bunch of girls I’ve ever worked with”.
The disagreement “wasn’t down to money” instead “they said we’d [the record label] had done a terrible job. I said ‘We can’t work with the management, it’s as simple as that’.”
The band moved to RCA – part of the larger Sony Group, which also includes Syco.
Whilst it is unknown whether Simon attended the BRITs tonight, Little Mix performed live on the show.
They took to the stage wearing pink PVC outfits and sang Woman Like Me with a feature from Ms Banks.
Those watching at home took to Twitter to discuss their performance.
One said: “@LittleMix DID THAT. Best performance so far at @BRITS 2019.”
“Little Mix: the most underrated group ever and yet they conquer and destroy the stage overtime #BRITs,” another added.
A third remarked: “@LittleMix YOU NEVER FAIL TO DISAPPOINT US, THAT WAS THE BEST PERFORMANCE EVER, YOU SLAYED LIKE USUAL!! #BRITs #LittleMixAtTheBrits.”
“THEY. DID. THAT. we are actually speechless that was the most incredible performance @LittleMix #LittleMixAtTheBrits #BRITs,” a fan commented.
