Brit Awards 2016 as it happened: Winners, performances and all the action from the O2

Biebs, Rihanna, Adele and The Weeknd are all performing.

The 2016 Brit Awards take place at London's O2 tonight, Britain's best effort at its own version of the Grammys but generally with more of a pop leaning.

It's being broadcast live on ITV1 as ever - always making for entertaining hiccups, tumbles from plinths in vertiginous heels and general schadenfreude - and has landed a pretty A-list performer line-up.

Adele, Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Coldplay will all be on stage, along with The Weeknd, Little Mix, Jess Glynne and James Bay. Ant and Dec are hosting, as they will ever year until 2388 when new Ant and Decs are replicated in an ITV laboratory.

It kicks off at 8pm, with the Brits' Facebook page live-streaming the red carpet beforehand. I'll be at the O2, typing away and keeping you updated (below) while getting my face roasted by 'Where Are Ü Now'.
