The Music Week Awards was the talk of the town last night, becoming the top trending topic on Twitter in the London area.
The awards ceremony returned to the Grosvenor House Hotel in London to celebrate the best of the best in the business and honour Warner Music's Max Lousada, winner of the evening's most prestigious award, The Strat. The sold-out event was attended by well over 1,200 guests – including top executives and global superstar Dua Lipa – who gathered to discover who had triumphed across 24 categories.
Here are a selection of the top tweets of the evening:
