Adele goes digital after Brits win

Adele has been crowned the queen of the Brits 2012 - but saw her big moment ruined when her speech was cut short.

The record-breaking singer landed two trophies at the glitzy event when she collected the best British female award as well as the big title of the night, best album.

But a rambling acceptance speech by earlier winner Damon Albarn meant she was barely able to deliver a speech and she gestured with her middle finger in frustration on-stage.

Adele, 23, said the insult was aimed at "the suits", after show host James Corden interrupted her to wind up her words.

As she collected the best album prize for 21, the breathless star gushed: "Nothing makes me prouder, yeah, than coming home with six Grammys, then coming to the Brits and winning album of the year.

"I am so so proud to be British and to be flying the flag and to be in the same room as all of you."

But seconds later Corden had to apologise as he forced her triumphant speech to end in a whimper. The star - who made a show-stopping comeback performance with hit Rolling In The Deep earlier in the show - then made her rude gesture.

Backstage Adele explained: "I flipped the finger but it wasn't to my fans. I'm sorry if I offended anyone but it was the suits that offended me."

Time appeared to run short when Albarn spent several minutes thanking people who had helped Blur as the band collected their outstanding contribution prize. Adele was forced off to allow the quartet to perform a set of big hits.

The incident upset Corden who said afterwards: "I just feel bad about having to cut Adele off. I don't understand what happened but I'm upset about it. Blur get to play for 11 minutes and she gets to say thank you once."
