Griff, winner of the BRITs Rising Star award, performs during The BRIT Awards 2021 at The O2 Arena on May 11, 2021 in London.

This year's Rising Star recipient Griff performed "Black Hole" at the 2021 Brit Awards on Tuesday (May 11).

Last year's Rising Star winner Celeste introduced the 20-year-old singer-songwriter, who started performing her latest single from within a gaping hole inside a black heart in an empty portion of London's O2 arena. Griff later joined her bandmates on the front of the stage, where another wide black hole was projected on the screen.

She accepted the award from Celeste and thanked her team, parents and "key workers" -- the British term for "essential workers" -- during her heartfelt speech.
