What a performance!
Stormzy delivered a stunning performance at the 2018 BRIT awards, which included a medley of songs.
The rapper, who won Best British Male and Best British Album, hit the stage for a stunning rendition of ‘Blinded By Your Grace Pt.2’, ‘Big For Your Boots’ and a new freestyle.
Love you all, thank you, thank God, emotional, overwhelmed, speechless...gonna go have a drink and party with my family— #GSAP (@Stormzy1) 21 February 2018
Stormzy took the opportunity to send a strong message to Theresa May about Grenfell and also The Daily Mail, who have repeatedly showed the rapper a lack of respect in the past.
Following the show-stopping performance, which was overlooked by Kendrick Lamar, people took to Twitter to weigh in on what they had witnessed.
Check out some of the best reactions below:

Not usually the kind of post we would make, but it was really refreshing to see #Stormzy at the #Brits last night. Great to see a young person involved and engaged in politics. Hopefully he can get the younger generations more interested in using their vote. pic.twitter.com/gHwy20MfdL— NHS Million (@NHSMillion) 22 February 2018
Stormzy just destroyed Theresa May and the Daily Mail in front of a worldwide audience. An absolutely decent human being and he deserves every success that comes his way.— Rachael (@Rachael_Swindon) 21 February 2018

Stormzy just sang “Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell? You think we forgot about Grenfell?” live on stage at the #BRITs.— Shelly (@ShellyAsquith) 21 February 2018
He is this country’s biggest asset, musically and politically.
Stormzy brought religion, politics, and road to the #BRITs Backed it for Grenfell, gave a shout out to Daniel Kaluuya & Jourdan Dunn, sang in the rain, and didn't get muted once. He's a legit national treasure— Elizabeth Pears (@BizPears) 21 February 2018
Think what you will about Stormzy’s music, but to take the opportunity to speak out for the people on such an influential stage takes bravery – and hopefully others follow suit.— Ben Webb (@BenWebbLFC) 22 February 2018
Huge respect to him.
Stormzy calling out Theresa May and the gov about Grenfell on big big Brit awards? Someone tell the queen to Knight this man pls— Akeeb.A (@AkeebLDN) 21 February 2018
Meanwhile, Stormzy’s performance was a stark contrast to Kendrick Lamar’s, who appeared to be hit with a series of technical difficulties.
The BRITs appeared to mute large parts of his performance, which angered lots of fans on social media.
