Tinie Tempah's 'Pass Out' won the British Single prize at the Brit Awards 2011 tonight (February 15)

The rapper picked up his second award of the night at the London O2 Arena and was keen to thank collaborator Labyrinth while accepting the gong from comedian Alan Carr.

"Where's Labyrinth?" Tempah said as he took to the stage. "I want to thank Labyrinth for being the genius who created the instrumental for 'Pass Out'."
