Adele’s middle finger wasn’t the only entertaining moment of the 2012 BRIT Awards (though it’s our personal favorite). The awards show, held at the O2 Arena in London, featured many great performances — as well as tributes to departed music icons Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse. Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Florence + The Machine and Adele all gave stirring live sets, while Rihanna, who reportedly pulled an all-nighter for her birthday celebrations, let her backing vocals do most of the work during “We Found Love.” Watch the performances below.
