Universal finds success at the BRITS.

Written by Daniel Kirby on 25th February 2016

UMG proved one of the big winners at last night's BRIT Awards, seeing their artists pick up a total of five trophies and finding particular success with their male acts. Justin Bieber, Jack Garratt and James Bay won awards for International Male Solo Artist, Critics' Choice and British Male Solo Artist respectively. 

XL Recordings saw Adele take home a record-equalling four awards in one evening, and with Bjork picking up the trophy for International Female Solo Artist a total of five awards ended up going to independently-signed artists.

WMG and Sony were less prolific, winning one apiece.
