Brits Awards 2022: Adele dominates the ceremony and other highlights

The 2023 Brit Awards are taking place this Saturday 11 February at the O2 Arena in London.

The full list of nominations were announced in January, and revealed one of the most eclectic lists of nominees in recent memory.

Recent Grammy winners Wet Leg emerged as one of the most-nominated acts with four nods, alongside regular Brits attendee and Grammy Album of the Year winner, Harry Styles.

Other acts up for some of the night’s top prizes include rapper Stormzy, rock band Arctic Monkeys, and The 1975.

In the international categories, Irish rock group Fontaines DC can be found muscling up against K-pop stars Blackpink and hip-hop artists Drake and 21 Savage.

The Artist of the Year category faced widespread criticism after being entirely dominated by male acts, just one year after the Brits scrapped gendered categories.

On the night, live performances will come from artists including Stormzy, Lizzo, Harry Styles and Wet Leg. You can find the full list of performers here.

Last year’s ceremony was a lively affair, attended by stars including Sheeran and Adele, who scooped prizes for Songwriter of the Year and Artist of the Year, respectively.

There was drama early on in the night, as pop singer Anne-Marie took a tumble during the first moments of her performance.

Mo Gilligan took over hosting duties from fellow comedian Jack Whitehall, who had presented the awards for the past four consecutive years. Gilligan will return to host the Brit Awards 2023 in February.

This year’s Rising Star award went to R&B trio FLO. Here’s how to watch this year’s awards.
