Wembley Stadium is a football stadium in Wembley, London, which opened in 2007, on the site of the original Wembley Stadium, which was demolished from 2002–2003. The stadium hosts major football matches including home matches of the England national football team, and the FA Cup Final.

After performing her new single, Walk Me Home, backstage, The Star appeared in the roof of The O2 Arena, descending to the ground in a ring of fire, before playing Try in The Middle of a screen of cascading water.

Singer Matty Healy, who last year caused controversy by claiming misogyny "no longer existed in rock and roll", used the acceptance speech for best group to modify his comments.
"Male misogynist acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of 'difficult' artists, [while] women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don't understand art," he said, quoting a 2015 article by The Guardian 's Laura Snapes, which gained renewed attention after emerged last week.The 1975 performing Sincerity is Scary Analysis - Mark Savage , BBC Music Reporter
Sometimes it seems painfully obvious: If you watched last week's Grammy Awards , you'll have seen Drake's name read out in The Best rap song category - at which point a camera was conveniently positioned backstage to film The Star , who had arrived, unannounced, to collect his award. Either the director was a clairvoyant, or someone had steamed open the envelope before The Show .
It's not clear whether The Band had been made aware of what their marketing department Knew - But it Shone An awkward spotlight on every tearful "this is so unexpected" speech we've seen this awards season.
That embarrassing mix-up aside, this was one of the slickest, most engaging Brit Awards in recent memory. All the performances hit home, from George Ezra 's warm-hearted rendition of Shotgun to Pink 's death-defying Greatest Hits medley (notable as much for the songs it left out as The Ones it included).
The only real let-down was the lack of major global talent. Pink aside, all The International Winners - Ariana Grande , Drake and The Carters - were absent; their trophies handed out in a desultory video montage.
Luckily for the Brits, this was more a case of bad luck than Bad Karma . Drake, who used his Grammy appearance to criticise The Show 's very existence, sent out positive vibes in his Brits' video message, wryly noting that, "I very much look forward to attempting to win [best international male] many more times. "
Maybe expanding the categories would help rectify the problem. The fact that there's still no award for best international album seems increasingly odd in a globalised streaming market.
Change could easily be afoot. The Brits get a new chairman in 2020 and, with the Grammys still subject to an unofficial boycott by the likes of Kanye West and Childish Gambino, their first priority should be to lure that US talent to the UK.
