The BRIT Awards 2014 were held in London last night and if you missed it then fear not, we’ve got all the latest news all in one place for you to view at anytime.

Unsurprisingly the winners and nominees from the star studded ceremony have shot up the iTunes Chart, along with some of the performers who graced the stage at the O2 in London.

The Arctic Monkeys won Album of the Year last night at the BRITs so it’s not a shock when they return to second place in the iTunes Chart with ‘AM’. What about that speech though? Was Alex Turner right?

Bastille, who teamed up with Rudimental (Bastimental anyone?) last night have also seen their album ‘Bad Blood’ and the re-release ‘All This Bad Blood’ shoot up the charts into number four and three respectively.

The BRIT Awards Album for 2014 is currently top of the iTunes Chart following last night’s awards ceremony in London while Beyonce who performed ‘XO’ live at the O2 last night is at number five on the chart.

Rudimental and Lorde who both performed and won at the ceremony last night have also seen sales in their albums increase overnight with Rudimental jumping to number eight and ten with their album ‘Home’ including the deluxe version.

For Lorde her debut album ‘Heroin’ currently sits at number twelve while BRIT nominee John Newman is at number thirteen with his debut album ‘Tribute’.


Finally, Ellie Goulding – who performed ‘I Need Your Love’ and ‘Burn’ yesterday and won the award for Best Female Solo Artist – is at number 14 with her album ‘Halcyon Days’ – the re-release of 2012’s ‘Halcyon’.

This could all change however going into Sunday when the Official Albums Chart number one is revealed. On the update yesterday it was Scotland’s Nina Nesbitt who was top of the charts with her debut album ‘PEROXIDE’. Can she hold on?
