Heading over to her Twitter account, Holly updated her fans on her progress.

Luckily, Holly made it in time, arriving on the red carpet ahead of the ceremony with just enough time to pose for pictures.

British Group nominees Bastille were also nearly late to the big event, as they took the London Underground to the ceremony.

The group shared a picture of themselves on a train, bemused looks on their faces.
