Adele walked away with the award for Best Female Artist after beating Laura Marling, Jessie J, Beyonce and PJ Harvey. The artist was also awarded with the award for Best Track for her track Rolling in the Deep. Adele had been expected to attend the awards but she was too ill and therefore pulled out at the last minute.
