GaGa, dressed in mad Pagliacci-meets-Jodorowsky style, pretty much cleaned up, bagging no less than three gongs – for International Female Solo Artist, International Album (for The Fame) and International Breakthrough Act.
Jay-Z won International Male Solo Artist, Dizzee Rasca took British Male Solo Artist, and Florence And The Machine’s Lungs was declared best British Album.
Liam Gallagher collected the award for British Album Of 30 Years (for Oasis’ (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?), before chucking his microphone and award into the audience, killing a member of JLS (probably).
