From BBC News:
Abba’s Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, Girls Aloud and Snow Patrol were also at the ceremony, while Mariah Carey, Lionel Richie and The Pussycat Dolls sent video messages.
As well as honouring Mr Grainge, the night raised more than £568,000 money for two charities, the Brit performing arts school and Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy.
Part of that came from an auction, which saw some of the biggest names entering into bidding wars.
Abba’s Benny and Bjorn took on Snow Patrol in a battle to buy a signed lithograph of the cover of U2’s Boy album.
The Swedish pop stars came out on top, forking out £40,000 for the poster.
