As fans and music industry reps have predicted, Adele is this year’s big winner at the Brit Awards 2016. The “Hello” singer took home four trophies, including the Best British Female Solo Artist award, during the ceremony held on Wednesday night.

The 27-year old songstress seems to have fully recovered from her botched performance of “All I Ask” at the Grammy Awards last week. Adele also picked up awards for Best British Album for her smash hit “25,” Best British Single and Best Global Success.

Adele, who closed this year’s ceremony with a live rendition of “When We Were Young,” has equalled Blur’s record in 1995, which also won four Brit Awards back in 1995. She was quite emotional in receiving each award, saying at one point that being warmly received after a long hiatus means so much to her.

When she was named the winner for Best British Female Solo Artist, Adele also voiced out her support for fellow artist Kesha. “I'd like to take a quick second to thank my management and my record label for embracing the fact that I'm a woman and being encouraged by it,” Adele said. “And I'd also like to take this moment to publicly support Kesha. Thank you very much.”

Adele joins several other female celebrities who have rallied round the embattled “TiK ToK” singer, who is currently embroiled in a legal battle with music producer Dr Luke. On Friday, the New York Supreme Court denied releasing her from her recording contract with Sony.

Kesha took to Instagram to take her supporters. “I am beyond words in gratitude,” she wrote. “Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. A million times over and forever thank you. The support I have received has left my face swollen from tears. I love you all so much. A statement too large for this format is coming…"
