    The 2014 Brit Awards gave viewers plenty of memorable moments!

    The British music industry honored some of the world's hottest artists tonight in London (hi, One Direction and Lorde!), but it wasn't just about handing out awards. There were also some awesome performances and funny show moments, thanks to host James Corden.

    For example, at one point Corden took the stage and jokingly turned up with a blazing sleeve which was put out by security staff after Arctic Monkeys opened the show with a performance of their track "R U Mine?" with flaming letters spelling out the name of their fifth album AM.

    But one of his most-shining moments of the night was, of course, his mini makeout session with Nick Grimshaw. The two men engaged in a little peck during last year's award show, but they decided to turn things up a notch this year, and we appreciate that.

    Aside from Corden's antics, a number of superstar singers took the stage to give blowout performances.

    Beyoncé gave the debut TV performance of her single "XO" while looking absolutely stunning in a Vrettos Vrettakos gown that contained—wait for it—140,000 blue zircon crystals! Bruno Mars also hit the stage with a high-energy performance of his hit "Treasure," giving fans flashbacks of his amazing Super Bowl halftime show.

    Katy Perry traded in her broomstick from the 2014 Grammy Awards for an Egyptian-themed performance of "Dark Horse," while Pharrell closed out the show by singing "Happy."

    Then, of course, there were the big winners of the night! 1D walked away with the awards for Global Success and Best British Video for "Best Song Ever." Joining the hunky boy band in the winner's circle was Lorde, who also performed "Royals," was named International Female winner.
