Music’s hottest acts came out in their best threads on Wednesday night for the 2013 Brit Awards, where celebrities in the music biz gathered at London’s O2 Arena.

Amy Winehouse’s parents honored their late daughter at the show who was nominated posthumously for best British female. Her father Mitch wore a jacket with the singer’s face on the back, which he proudly showed off on the red carpet.

The only dramatic event on the red carpet involved Lily Allen, who was late to the red carpet after going to the wrong venue. According to the NZHerald, Allen had gone to Earls Court in London, where the awards ceremony used to be held for years.

"Oh according to my driver the Brits 2013 are no longer at Earls Court - this should only delay me by another hour or so. Whoops,” she tweeted.

If you consider rampant screaming to dramatic, then certainly when One Direction arrived on the red carpet, drama ensued, as fans shouted upon seeing their favorite boy band.

"We're very excited to be back here," Louis Tomlinson told Sky News.
