0:00:450:00:48

And brought her little

brother and sister on stage

0:00:480:00:50

with her to collect it.

0:00:500:00:56

Every single female that has spin on

this stage before me that has given

0:00:560:01:01

girls like me not just girls in the

music industry but girls in society

0:01:010:01:06

a place to be inspired by, to look

up to and have allowed us to dream

0:01:060:01:12

0:01:120:01:14

Ed Sheeran was also a winner.

0:01:140:01:20

Although he lost out

to Stormzy in two categories -

0:01:200:01:21

he was given a special award

for global success.

0:01:210:01:24

The only award voted

for by the fans was best video.

0:01:240:01:26

Harry Styles got that one

for best British video -

0:01:260:01:29

0:02:000:02:03

Winter Olympics stuff now

and to the sport of Curling.

0:02:040:02:07

Last night, Great Britain's

men's team failed to get

0:02:070:02:09

a place in the semi finals.

0:02:090:02:11

But Great Britain s women have made

it - they play Sweden

0:02:110:02:13

in the semis tomorrow.

0:02:130:02:15

So we thought now was a good time

to give you five fun facts

0:02:150:02:18

about the sport itself...

0:02:180:02:21

First up, let's take

a look at the shoes.

0:02:230:02:26

They don't wear heels,

that's for sure.

0:02:260:02:29

Curlers wear two different shoes

when they are on the ice.

0:02:290:02:33

On one foot they have a sliding sole

which allows the athlete to slide

0:02:330:02:36

when they throw the stone

or when they are sweeping.

0:02:360:02:39

On the other foot,

the shoe is just a normal

0:02:390:02:41

athletic shoe but the sole has to be

the same thickness as the slider to

0:02:410:02:45

keep the curler level.

0:02:450:02:48

The ice is a very important

part of the game,

0:02:520:02:55

small droplets of water

are sprayed onto it,

0:02:550:02:57

that's called pebbling

and

0:02:570:02:58

it means the surface is in tiptop

condition for the rocks to glide

0:02:580:03:02

smoothly along the surface.

0:03:020:03:04

Curling stones are

made out of real rock

0:03:090:03:11

called granite.

0:03:110:03:12

It's used because it's

so hard and tough.

0:03:120:03:14

All curling stones for

competitors around the

0:03:140:03:16

world are made in Scotland,

all of the granite used runs

0:03:160:03:19

from this rock called

Ailsa Craig on the coast

0:03:190:03:23

of Ayrshire which in Gaelic

0:03:230:03:23

means 'fairy rock'.

0:03:230:03:30

The hog line is this area

of the ice, each player's stone

0:03:300:03:33

must go over this line,

if it doesn't, the

0:03:330:03:35

stone will be removed from play.

0:03:350:03:37

No good.

0:03:370:03:43

Boys and girls, this

could be the most

0:03:470:03:49

exciting move in curling,

a

0:03:490:03:50

good old-fashioned lunge,

look how much fun she is having.

0:03:500:03:53

This technique is used

by the athlete to

0:03:530:03:55

make sure they have good

direction and balance

0:03:550:03:57

when they are moving

the

0:03:570:03:58

stone.

0:03:580:03:59

One, two, three, lunge!

0:03:590:04:02

Good luck to the women.

0:04:070:04:09

Manchester United were held

to a goalless draw at

0:04:090:04:11

Sevilla in the first leg

of their Champions

0:04:110:04:13

League last 16 tie.

0:04:130:04:14

Record signing Paul Pogba

was left on the bench,

0:04:140:04:17

although he did replace the injured

Ander Herrera in the first half.

0:04:170:04:19

United's David de Gea made

some great saves to keep

0:04:190:04:22

the score at nil-nil.

0:04:220:04:26

Mourinho's side produced

just six shots compared

0:04:260:04:27

with 25 by the home side.

0:04:270:04:30

If you're not a fan

of heights, look away now.

0:04:300:04:33

Snaking through the mountains

0:04:380:04:39

of northern China, this

0:04:390:04:40

is the world's longest

glass suspension bridge.

0:04:400:04:42

It's nearly 500 metres long

with a vertical drop

0:04:420:04:44

of more than 200 metres -

it is supposed to represent a dragon

0:04:440:04:47

flying through the valley.

0:04:470:04:49

It's designed to take up

to 2000 people at a time.

0:04:490:04:52

That's it from us.

0:04:520:04:54

I'll see you in just

over half an hour.
