SCOTLAND was well-represented among the winners at this year’s Brits, as Scots took home three top awards.

The annual music prize ceremony, hosted on Wednesday night by Jack Whitehall, was broadcast from the O2 Arena in London.

Calvin Harris scooped two Brit awards after being nominated 16 times over the last 10 years.

The Dumfries native said it meant “a lot” after taking home Producer of the Year and British Single of the Year for One Kiss, sharing the victory with singer Dua Lipa.

“I’ve been coming here for a few years and I’ve never got the opportunity to say anything on this stage before, so I really want to thank the people,” Harris said.

“I want to thank the people at home, I want to thank these people here, I want to thank anyone that has bought a tune, streamed a tune, come to a show, listened to a song by accident on the radio and gone ‘What’s this?’”

The song also featured in Harris’s collaborative performance with Dua Lipa, Rag’n’Bone Man and Sam Smith.

One Kiss was up against Leave A Light On by another Scotsman, Tom Walker.

Despite losing out in that category, Walker took home another award, accepting the Breakthrough Artist trophy and dedicating it to his gran: “Who is watching somewhere on the telly,” he said.

The young artist has previously said his grandmother is his biggest fan and she has been to all of his shows in Scotland.

Glasgow-based Lewis Capaldi was also nominated but lost the Critic’s Choice award, which was announced back in December, to Sam Fender.

The ceremony saw a number of musical performances between handing out the awards.

The 1975 – who took home two awards for British Group and British Album of the Year for A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships – took to the stage to perform Sincerity Is Scary. Lead vocalist Matty Healy used their acceptance speech to call out music industry misogyny.

Beyonce and Jay-Z showed their support for Meghan Markle as they won Best International Group as The Carters. In their acceptance video, the couple could be seen standing in front of what looks to be portrait of the Countess of Dumbarton.

Meanwhile, P!nk became the first international artists to receive the Outstanding Contribution to Music award.

“To be considered in the same category as David Bowie and the Beatles and Sir Elton and Sir Paul and Fleetwood Mac is beyond anything I can comprehend,” the American singer said.

She performed a 10-minute medley, which closed the show.
