Country-inspired band Mumford & Sons were celebrating winning the biggest award at the BRITs last night, after lifting the Mastercard British Album of the Year gong for Sigh No More.
The four-piece, who beat off some stiff competition from acts including Plan B, The xx, Tinie Tempah and Take That, treated the audience to a performance of their song Timshel.
The boys - Marcus Mumford, Country Winston, Ben Lovett, and Ted Dwane - sang their in their unique country, bluegrass and folk-inspired style, to a captivated audience. Watch it on stv.tv if you missed it, or just want to see it again.
Clearly surprised but delighted with their win, they accepted their award from Roger Daltrey from The Who, telling the audience: This is very bizarre, most strange. Thank you very much indeed, we’re very honoured.”
The band, which is possibly best known for making the ukulele cool again, have had their music sampled here there and everywhere, on shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, and on various BBC programmes.
Other acts who were successful at last night’s awards including boy band Take That, R&B diva Rihanna, Canadian rockers Arcade Fire, hip-hop/R&B star Tinie Tempah, Laura Marling and Cee Lo Green.
