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.

Looks like Jess Glynne is the latest singer to receive the Ed Sheeran treatment and we cannot wait to hear what these two have in store.

Not content with dominating the charts by himself, Ed has helped many artists climb their way to the top with his versatile song-writing skills, and now it's fellow flame-haired singer, Jess Glynne's turn to get in on the action.

The Shape of You singer is helping to re-launch Jess's career by co-writing two songs, titled Thursday and Woman Like Me.

According to The Sun, the tracks are set to be “major components” to Jess's new album.

A source told the paper:  “After the success Jess enjoyed with her first album, she has been able to pick and choose who she works with but was delighted that Ed came on board."

“His offerings are set to be major components of Jess’s album — his songwriting and her distinctive sound are a perfect fit.”

2017 has been a busy year for Ed. Having already penned songs for Rita Ora, Liam Payne and Zara Larsson, you'd wonder where the singer finds the time to work on his own career?

Not that he needs to.

Last weekend Ed sold over 300,000 tickets for his 2018 Irish tour and has since announced two extra dates.

Tickets for Páirc Uí Chaoimh, May 6 and Phoenix Park, May 19, go on sale this Saturday at 9:00am through usual outlets.
