One Direction singer, Harry Styles ran to the stage after a quick visit to the restroom almost missing out on the spotlight moment. He opened up to the crowd after dashing onto the stage, ”Sorry, I was having a wee, the toilets are ages away”. The singers received the Global Success Award for the second time time in a row.
Topping the performances of the evening was Beyonce’s surprise ‘XO’ performance. She seems to be in the mood for surprises as she delivered the ballad beautifully arousing cheers from the audience. The solemn performance was unlike the Grammys’ Drunk In Love steaming performance with hubby, Jay Z.

David Bowie won the Best British Male prize but didn’t turn up to receive his award sending Kate Moss in his place. She showed up dressed as Bowie in an original Ziggy Stardust costume he wore to his 1972 Costume Concert. receiving the award, Kate said, ”Stay with us Scotland” awkwardly short for an acceptance speech don’t you think?
Topping the chart of controversial, was James Corden (host of the award ceremony) and Nick Grimshaw, Radio 1 DJ Nick who took to the stage to present an award and James rushed to give him a kiss. Nick did not hold back, instead he wrapped his arms around James to reciprocate.
