Adele Received Brit Award from Outer Space Courtesy of Astronaut Tim Peake Himself
Adele received the Brit Award right from outer space. What makes it more meaningful for the British singer was that Astronaut Tim Peake personally presented the award! Now that is one memorable awards night.
In a recorded message taken from the International Space Station, Astronaut Tim Peake spoke highly of Adele. He said, "We're all huge fans up here." In Yahoo News, he further mentioned that she had "taken the world by storm."
Peake presented he Global Success award, which was given to the singer for her record-breaking album "25." Moreover, "25" also won Album of the Year. In addition, Adele was the Best Female Solo Artist and her single "Hello" was the best single.
When she took the stage, she was in tears. Who wouldn't? It's not every single day that a singer would get three awards all in one ceremony at London's O2 Arena.
Telegraph reported that Adele said this during her Brit award acceptance speech, "Thank you, I can't work out if I'm crying because of the video or because Tim Peake did it! My kid is going to think I'm so cool." What followed this contained some expletives, which was "bleeped." Perhaps, Adele was just overwhelmed with emotion that she forgot she was on live TV.
Another emotional moment during the Brit Awards Ceremony was when Gary Oldman and Annie Lenox paid tribute to the British rock legend, David Bowie. It can be recalled that Bowie died unexpectedly last month due to cancer. Oldman described Bowie as a mortal with superhuman potential.
Aside from Adele who was clearly proud and happy with her Brit award, Justin Bieber received the International Solo Artist award. James Bay won Best British Solo Artist award. Rihanna, on the other hand, performed her latest single "Work."
