Kim Kardashian shared a selfie with Ant and Dec, Taylor Swift posed with Kanye West and Madonna explained her on-stage accident to fans - Instagram gave us a very different view of the Brit awards last night.
The stars took us behind the scenes, posting getting ready shots, selfies with their closest friends - our favourite is Ellie Goulding, Cara Delevingne, Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss practising their best photo faces - and after-party pictures at the ceremony in London.
See the biggest night in British music from the eyes of the stars.
