17 FEBRUARY 2010

Flamboyant performer Lady GaGa ruled the Brits on Tuesday night, picking up a hat trick of gongs.

The 23-year-old star walked off with best International Female, Best International Album and Best International Breakthrough.

After accepting her first award, she told the audience: "Thank you so much. I love my fans in the UK. I can't tell you how much this means to me."

The tearful star continued: "Thank you to my whole family. Thank you for believing in me – I'll always believe in you. Thank you to Lee McQueen."

The grieving singer, who arrived wearing a floor-length layered dress and a Philip Treacy headpiece, had turned her dressing room into a shrine to the late designer.

She filled the backstage area with photos of the British fashion icon and hung up samples of fabric he had used.

GaGa wasn't the only performer to be sporting impressive hairwear at the ceremony. Lily Allen donned a curly wig to perform her single The Fear and a bright orange one to collect an award for Best British Female.

As she was handed the gong by dame Shirley Bassey, Lily couldn't stop giggling.

"Wow. Oh my god. I only wore this wig because I thought it would make it harder for the cameraman to catch my disappointed face when I didn't win," she exclaimed.

It was also a great night for the JLS boys, who won two awards. Marvin, JB, Ortise and Aston performed their song Beat Again before collecting Best Single for the track as well as Best British Breakthrough.

Other recipients included Dizzie Rascal, Beyonce's husband Jay Z and Oasis. In true rock'n'roll style Liam Gallagher threw the award for British Album of 30 Years into the crowd – along with the microphone - after collecting it on behalf of his band.

And Robbie Williams was cheered on by fiancée Ayda Field as he was awarded a special Brit for Outstanding Contribution to Music.
