Lana Del Ray took to the stage in a stunning low-cut red dress with obvious tears in her eyes as she accepted the award from Black Eyed Peas rapper, Will.i.am and the comedian, Rob Brydon.
"This award means much more to me than you know and I just wanna say that without the support of everyone is this room and everyone in the UK I'd really be lost so thank you, I love you," said Lana.
