Emeli went into the night with more nominations than anyone else – five in total. After getting the whole crowd on their feet with her stunning performance of My Kind Of Love which opened the show, Emeli was the most successful artist of the evening winning the Best Female Act, Best Album and Best R&B/Soul Act categories.
Soul legend Dionne Warwick was the recipient of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award and declared herself a firm fan of Emeli saying: “I really, really love her voice. She’s wonderful – she’s a star.”
Well said Dionne!
