No surprise here: Adele was the night's first big winner at the Brit Awards, where she took home a trophy for Best Solo Female Artist. 

But it was Adele's acceptance speech that will likely have fans talking. At the end of her thank you remarks, the "Hello" singer announced, "I'd also like to take this moment to publicly support Kesha." 

Kesha Posts 'Grateful' Statement: 'This Issue Is Bigger Than Just About Me'

Adele, it should be noted, is a Columbia artist, which is under Sony -- the same corporation Kesha is suing to be released from her contract.

Just an hour ago, Kesha posted a public statement on her Facebook page, writing, "Other entertainers who knowingly put their own careers at stake by supporting me, I will be forever grateful."
