From The Daily Mail:
Adele, who earlier performed a stunning rendition of Rolling In The Deep, said afterwards it was ‘to all the suits’ of the show.
She’s a winner: Adele with her two awards in the press room
The 23-year-old was on stage accepting her second award of the night – after taking home Best Female Artist – presented by George Michael.
She said: ‘Thank you so much, thank you, thank you very, very much.
‘Nothing beats coming home with six Grammys and then coming to the Brits and winning album of the year.
‘I’m so proud to be flying the British flag for all of you.’
James then appeared on stage, met by boos from the crowd, and said: ‘I’m so sorry, can I just cut off?’
Adele said: ‘Are you about to cut me off? Can I just say then, goodbye and I’ll see you next time round.’
She then proceeded to flip the bird, amid cheers from the audience.
James introduced Blur, who performed three songs. The group had earlier won the Outstanding Contribution Award and frontman Damon Albarn got away with made a rambling speech – the longest of the night.
An ITV spokesman said: ‘The BRITs is a live event. Unfortunately the programme was over running and we had to move on. We would like to apologise to Adele for the interruption.’
The star said afterwards: ‘I was about to thank the British public for their support. They cut me off, sorry if I offended anyone but the suits offended me.’
