Hosting the BRITs is a pretty big deal but this year's presenter Mo Gilligan was up to the challenge, putting on one hell of a show from the O2 on Tuesday night.
As well as introducing star-studded guests like Ed Sheeran, Adele, and Olivia Rodrigo, Mo got the chance to throw in some zingers along the way - and he did not miss his opportunity to take a dig at Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Mo had been closing out a performance from Anne-Marie, KSI, and Digital Farm Animals when he decided to mention the recent partygate scandal.
The presenter had the audience behind him in stitches as he invited Boris down to join the party.
Focusing in on the Mad Hatter's Tea Party theme of Anne-Marie's performance, Mo called out the Prime Minister on camera, telling him: "I know you love a party. Come down, my guy. I know you like a cheeseboard."
The alleged Downing Street parties are currently being investigated by the Metropolitan Police, after the release of the Sue Gray report.
Following the report, Boris Johnson issued an apology to the House of Commons, but many are still calling for the leader to resign.
Tuesday night's BRITs were full of memorable moments, from Adele's three wins - and potential engagement? - to Ed Sheeran's heavy metal version of 'Bad Habits' with Bring Me The Horizon.
But the moment that got everyone talking was Anne-Marie's fall and swift recovery during her performance of 'Kiss My (Uh Oh)'.
As she made her way down some steps, she tripped and fell to the ground after letting go of a dancer's hand.
But just like the queen of pop Madonna did at the 2015 ceremony after her own fall, the 30-year-old star quickly got back up and finished her performance.
After the performance, Anne-Marie took to Twitter to poke fun at her own on-stage blunder. Just when we thought we couldn't love her any more!
