The 22-year-old singer picked up the gong at the glitzy award ceremony at London's O2 Arena on Wednesday (21.02.18), and used her acceptance speech to thank female artists everywhere for "inspiring" young girls like her to "dream big", as she urged more women to follow their hearts.

Speaking on stage, the 'New Rules' hitmaker said: "Oh my goodness thank you so so so much. I want to thank you all so much for starting my night out so magically. I'm so grateful for this, and so so humbled. I want to thank my fans, first of all for everything you guys do for me, you've held down the fort from day one so thank you so much.
