BRIT Awards 2024: Everything you need to know

Awards Thursday February 15, 2024 By: Harry Howes

Awards season is in full swing and they don’t get much more exciting than the BRITs. A celebration of British music and beyond, the iconic ceremony returns to London next month.

Once again, the BRITs will take place at the O2 Arena, with Clara Amfo, Maya Jama and Roman Kemp set to host proceedings. The event will take place on Saturday 2nd March and will be broadcast live on ITV.

RAYE, Dua Lipa and Kylie Minogue have been announced as performers for the show and all three will have their fingers crossed that they’ll be going home with one (or more!) of the famous Britannia statuettes. Jungle and Rema will also be taking to the stage, with more acts likely to be announced.

Harry Styles dominated last year’s BRITs, picking up four awards including ‘Album of the Year’, ‘Artist of the Year’ and ‘Song of the Year’. And fellow boy band member turned solo artist Robbie Williams is the most successful BRITs winner in history, having won a record 13 awards on his own, as well as another five as part of Take That.

Ahead of this year’s event, we’ve outlined everything you need to know.

Can RAYE make history?

Following an incredible 2023, British singer RAYE has broken the record for the most-ever BRIT nominations in a single year.

The 26-year-old is up for seven different awards including ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Artist of the Year’. RAYE also has two tracks up for ‘Song of the Year’, and she’ll be hoping to scoop gongs for ‘Best New Artist’, ‘Pop Act’ and ‘R&B Act’.

She’s the favourite to win ‘Album of the Year’ with her stunning record My 21st Century Blues, although the likes of Little Simz, Blur and J Hus will be hoping to pip her to the title. Meanwhile, Dua Lipa, Fred Again and Dave are her main rivals for ‘Artist of the Year’.

In fact, Dua Lipa is also in contention for ‘Song of the Year’ with Dance The Night as well as ‘Pop Act’ and she’ll be looking to add to her collection, having already previously won six BRIT awards.

RAYE’s hits Escapism and Prada are among those vying to be crowned the year’s best song, while Dave and Central Cee will be hoping they can claim the honours with Sprinter.

Who else could win at the BRITs?

Taylor Swift caught headlines this week as she proudly watched NFL star boyfriend Travis Kelce retain the Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs. And the singer could be celebrating again next month having been nominated for ‘International Artist of the Year’. But she’ll face stiff competition in a category that includes the likes of Kylie Minogue, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey.

Elsewhere, iconic britpop band Blur have a rich history with the BRITs. Damon Albarn and co. have won five awards and the 1996 ceremony saw their feud with Oasis peak. Blur made their comeback last year and have been rewarded with three nominations for ‘Album of the Year’, ‘Group of the Year’ and ‘Alternative/Rock Act’.

Watch the Brits from the best seats in the house
