So when we were heading home on Wednesday night, following our live coverage of the 2019 Brit Awards, many of the winners' nights were just getting going.

Dua Lipa, who bagged best British single for her Calvin Harris collab One Kiss, got her party started by posing for a pic with one of her idols, Pink.

The US star was in town to provide a closing medley, after picking up her outstanding contribution to music award and Dua went all fan-girly after the event.

"Thank you Pink for being the realest," she wrote (above).

The realest singer has today released her new track, Walk Me Home, which she performed on the night and you can check out a snippet below.

The 1975 were the night's big winners doing the double, winning best British group and best album for A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.

Frontman Matty Healy used his time on the podium to call out misogyny in the music biz.

The day after the show he tweeted his thanks (below) to everybody who has supported his "left leaning band", adding that he and his bandmates have been humbled by their success.

New UK pop royalty was sworn in on Wednesday as Jorja Smith was crowned as the best British female solo artist, which prompted her to reach for the dancing women in flowing dress emoji.

Joining the newly-anointed Queen Jorja in the castle of pop was George Ezra, who won the male equivalent.

In true regal style, King George VII thanked the people "from the bottom of my heart" the next day.

Last but not least Little Mix smashed their performance of Woman Like Me, which saw rising UK rapper Ms Banks take on the role of Nicki Minaj.

The girls won best video for the visuals to the same song, which Jesy described as "a dream", after cropping all of her bandmates out of the below pic.

Nobody puts Jesy in the corner.

The 21-year-old won best female solo artist for her album Lost & Found.

It just doesn't seem real. In fact, when you watch it back on TV, I'm just sitting here thinking 'I was there'. I just can't describe it, we just weren't expecting it at all."

Sam Fender gets Critics' Choice award

No Brits coverage would be complete without Sam Fender.

The North Shields music sensation showed off his Critics' Choice trophy at the red carpet last night.

He also revealed where he'd keep the award:

"On me mam's mantlepiece in the flat back home, next to a model of a highland cow she made herself.

"It looks like Satan and I'm going to have the Brit next to it."

Great night for Little Mix last night - the girls scooped the second Brit award in their career.

The band won best video for a Woman Like Me with Nicki Minaj after missing out on the prize three times.

Black Magic, Hair and Touch were nominated for best British video in 2016, 2017 and 2018 respectively.

The last time Little Mix took home a Brit Award was in 2017 for single of the year.

In a heartwarming moment caught on camera, the band had a celebratory hug.

Award season is in full swing with the Brits taking place in London last night.

The 1975 topped the winners' list, bagging the awards for best British group and album of the year.

It's a win for the North East as well - lead singer Matty Healy is the son of Denise Welch and Tim Healy.

Denise said in a tweet she was "speechless" .

Matty used the acceptance speech to address misogyny in the music industry.

"Male misogynist acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of 'difficult' artists, [while] women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don't understand art," he said.

Last year his claims that misogyny "no longer existed in rock and roll" caused controversy.
