Stormzy dedicated his BRIT Award to incredible females, and we don’t deserve him

What a man!

Last night, the BRIT Awards took place in London, and what a night it was.

The evening was filled with incredible music, hilarious commentary from host, Jack Whitehall, and a number of worthy winners.

One of those winners was Stormzy, who took home the award for Best Male Artist.

Bravo sir!

Anyway, during his acceptance speech for this impressive award, Stormzy thanked many, but especially the incredible females on his team.

“I’m so happy, man,” he said as he took to the podium to accept his award.

But making a more serious point, he went on: “To be the best male, I have got the most incredible females in my team.”

“You lot are the greatest, the best male is nothing without the best females. I love you guys. To every single person who supported me, I love you. Thank you guys.”

What a prince!

Another big winner on the night was Lewis Capaldi, who unlike Stormzy, had his acceptance speech censored.

Viewers were left a little surprised by his acceptance speech as he scooped up the award – mainly because the the entire thing got bleeped out.

However, someone has since shared the uncensored speech – and the entire situation has left viewers in stitches.

“Thank you very fucking much, I’ll see you later,” was what he said.

Later in the evening, the 23-year-old delivered another memorable thank you speech as he accepted the award for Song of the Year.

“Contrary to popular belief, a lot of people think this song is about my ex-girlfriend who you can see every night on Love Island,” he said in a nod to Love Island’s Paige Turley.

“[The song] is actually about my grandma who passed away a few years ago,” he explained, before quipping: “I hope Love Island don’t contact her to be on the show.”

He went on to say that the last year has been the best one of his life, as he thanked his label, his parents to thank the label and before adding one more thank you.

“Thanks to my grandma for… dying? I’m sorry,” he quipped, before heading off the stage.
