Adele scooped up a double win at the BBC Music Awards; further cementing what's proved to be a landmark year for the artist following the release of her record-breaking album, 25.

Held at the Birmingham Genting Arena, the show opened with One Direction performing their summer single "Drag Me Down". It proved to be a (literally) hot performance for the band, as jets of flame started pumping the temperatures up as they sang. It's also significantly one of their last performance before their reported hiatus starts; something awards' host Chris Evan couldn't help but bring up, "Let me get this straight, you've just figured out how to do this and enjoy this and you're going to stop?" He then tried to get them to change their mind; it was a valiant try, fans, but it still failed.

Other performances came from Ellie Goulding, Little Mix, Jack Garratt, Hozier, Years & Years, Jess Glynne, James Bay, and OMI.

The results in full:

British Artist of the Year: Adele

International Artist of the Year: Taylor Swift

BBC Live Performance of the Year: Adele at the BBC

Hozier is the most-streamed Irish artist of all-time on Spotify

Song of the Year: "Take Me to Church", Hozier
