New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ MUZU.TV) Coldplay opened up this year's awards with their latest track 'Charlie Brown'. Florence Welch & Her Machine didn't put a note wrong as she gave a perfect rendition of 'No Light, No Light'. Olly Murs & Rizzle Kicks made a few girls hearts skip a beat with their performance of their single. Ed Sheeran is still the man of the moment and he stepped up and gave a great performance of 'Lego House'. Noel Gallagher was joined on stage with none other than Chris Martin for a mesmerising performance of 'Aka What A Life'. Adele showed she can still reach those notes after her operation as she delivered a stunning performance of 'Rolling In The Deep'. Bruno Mars stripped back his hit 'Just The Way You Are' especially for the awards. Rihanna took a leaf out of Lady Gaga's stage production as she performed her smash hit 'We Found Love' in amongst some clear boxes. Blur rolled back the years and showed Brit Pop is still alive and kicking with their classic hits 'Girls And Boy's', 'Song 2' and 'Parklife'.
