The loveable songstress was awarded the Brits British Female Solo Artist Award, Best Single Award for comeback song ‘Hello’, Brits Global Success Award, and the Mastercard British Album Of The Year Award for her third album, 25.

Impressive stuff!

And the now 27-year-old experienced a range of emotions while receiving each honour, delivering a mix of comic and moving lines.

Arguably the sweetest moment was when she was announced as the winner of the Brits Global Success Award, and the way the honour was presented to her way out of this world – quite literally!

Astronaut Sir Tim Peake spoke via video link from the International Space Station, giving humble Adele a huge congratulations on her universal success.

Tim, the first British astronaut to visit space, said:

'”It's a huge honour to be part of this incredible night from up here on board the International Space Station.

“But now, let's take a look at why this artist is such a deserving winner of this year's global success award.”

And it seems the woman who has the ability to reduce us all to tears with a single song lyric couldn’t hold back this time, as she looked overwhelmed as she made her way up the stage of the O2 arena.

She told the audience and viewers:

"I can't work out if I'm crying because of that video or because Tim Peake did it - my kid is going to love it, it's so cool!’

We bet – how cute!

Adele, who took a career break for several years after her phenomenally successfully album 21, during which she gave birth to son Angelo, 3, was overwhelmed by the response to her comeback, saying:

"To come back...I got lost for a while, I didn't know if I was going to come back, and you all being so kind to me...."

"I want to thank my boyfriend for supporting me, this is not bad for a girl from Tottenham! Tim Peake - I love you! I hope you're ok and not too hungry!"

The ever –honest Adele, couldn’t help but slip out a few swear words during her speech, to which Brit presenters Ant and Dec apologised to viewers.

In other speeches, she said:

"I'm sorry for swearing earlier… and sorry for the ugly cry face!

And later: "I didn't get cut off this time and I didn't swear!"

Joking about the moment James Corden had to cut her off during her 2012 acceptance speech.

Adele closed the show with a moving performance of When We Were Young.
