Jess Glynne's Brit Awards performance has been hailed as "inspirational" after she removed her makeup during the song, backed by a legion of women.

She performed her hit single Thursday surrounded by fellow ladies removing their cosmetics in front of the audience, and we got CHILLZ (They're multiplyin').

Glynne looked stunning in a white strapless dress for the rendition, and emoved her false eyelashes and wipes off her eyeshadow during the lyrics; "I won’t wear makeup on Thursday, 'cause who I am is enough”.

The star was joined by a group of fellow women who also donned white for the occasion, and simultaneously removed their makeup using hand towels in front of vanity mirrors.

Halfway through the tune, the British singer was joined by two-time Grammy winner H.E.R, and the standout moment became all the more powerful.

A video of countless women removing makeup played behind them, showing the need to fight back against society's strict and unrealistic beauty standards for women.

Twitter has gone absolutely wild with praise for the pair, with one person even tweeting; “That was one of the most empowering performances I’ve ever seen." YAS.

The moment came just after The 1975 frontman and absolute feminist legend Matt Healy accepted band’s award for “Best British Group” and spoke out about misogyny in the entertainment industry.

The relevance; we heart.

Healy quoted an article written about singer Ryan Adams by friend and music journalist Laura Snapes, who writes for The Guardian and Pitchfork.

“Male misogynist acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of ‘difficult’ artists, while women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don’t understand art.”

Bravo Jess, and Bravo Matt. We love you both, keep slamming the ridiculous standards of the music business.

The BRITS were a big hit last night with Adele, Justin Bieber, One Direcrion and Coldplay all picking up an award.

And while Rihanna got down and dirty with Drake, it was Lorde's performance that stunned the audience.

The singer pair tribute to the late David Bowie, singing a fab rendition of Life On Mars.

As David said before, listening to Lorde sing was like listening to tomorrow, and by God, the girl did not disappoint.

Boy George stepped out on the red carpet at the BRIT Awards sporting what looked like bruises and blood above his left eye.

However, while he may have looked like he had been in a fight, the Karma Chameleon singer had actually put on the strange make-up himself. Explaining the look to Vogue magazine, the 54-year-old said, “I’m a fashion victim”.

The British singer shared a picture on Twitter of him heading to the awards ceremony and captioned it, “Rockin’,” clearly implying that he was going for the rocker look.

Last year, the Do You Really Want  to Hurt Me hitmaker had a bit of a spat with One Direction member Liam Payne after he accused Liam of snubbing his 13-year-old niece. He tweeted: “Top marks to Harry Styles for stopping for a picture with my niece and Bo**ox’s to Liam and the disrespectful w**ker of a minder!”

However, Liam did not let it go without defending himself and tweeted back: “@BoyGeorge now now boy lets not tell porkies. Firstly thanks for getting my name wrong three times, then asking me where is liam?…awkward. Then when you finally got it right saying you wanted Niall instead.”

Thankfully the night went off without any problems between the pair and neither ended up with real bruises.
