BRIT Awards 2015: The full list of winners and nominees

Look back at 2015's biggest night for UK music.

2015 was Sam Smith's year as he took home two awards, one for British Breakthrough Act and another for BRITs Global Success. Sam also performed his single Lay Me Down and his album In The Lonely Hour returned to Number 1 as a result. Nice one!

Also at the 2015 gongs, an overwhelmed Paloma Faith picked up the award for Best British Female, and Royal Blood pulled a shocker to overcome Coldplay and One Direction in the Best British Group category. Oh, and how could we fail to mention Madonna's unforgettable performance?
