But it seems the highlight of the evening for him may not have related to his own successes - having been caught massively fanboying over Billie Eilish.
A backstage video shared by Kiss FM shows Stormzy hanging out with the 18-year-old singer, who scooped the International Female Solo Artist accolade.
In the clip, an excited Stormzy gushes: "You are the f***ing greatest, you're so... She's so f***ing... It's dumb!
"And every time I listen to the new song of yours I go on A to Z lyrics and I read it. And I'm just like bruv, she's brilliant pen."
The rapper then bursts into song, giving us a delightful rendition of Eilish's new track 'Everything I Wanted' as she dances along with him.
Eilish says as she turns to him: "Oh my God, I'm gonna cry."
Stormzy replies: "You're too hard! You're so hard it don't even matter! You're too hard, she's too hard. Sorry, sorry to crash that [interview]."
As Stormzy wanders off into the crowds to leave Eilish, she turns back to reporters and says: "What the hell?! What the hell?"
Lizzo was also feeling the love for Eilish on the night, having shouted out 'I LOVE YOU!' as Eilish collected her award.

The 'Bad Guy' singer had started off her speech by accidentally saying Lizzo's name when she meant to say that London felt like a 'second home' to her.
This in turn prompted Lizzo to stand up and throw her arms towards the stage, repeatedly yelling kind words as Eilish laughed along.
Speaking on stage later in the night as she collected her award, she said: "I've felt really hated recently.
"And when I was onstage, and I saw you guys all smiling at me... it genuinely made me want to cry. And I want to cry right now."
