Paul Weller Wins Brit!

Paul Weller has picked up the award for Best Male Solo Artist at tonight's (February 18) BRIT Awards at London's Earls Court.

The former JAM singer wasn’t at the awards tonight. Instead, Weller's award was presented to him by Adele via a video link. Both artists seemed to find the occasion funny as they couldn’t stop laughing during the recording. When Weller eventually spoke, he thanks the BRITs.

"Sorry I cant be there tonight," he said. "But thank you very much for this award. Have a good night"
