BRIT Awards: Everything We Know So Far

By  | 

The 42nd BRIT Awards 2022 is on for Tuesday the 8th of February at The O2 Arena in London; nominations had been announced on the 18th of December 2021, which will be listed below, and now that we finally have more updates on hosts, performances, and more, we are excited to see how the show proceeds and all the fun it will bring. The annual event is not too far away now, which is presented by the British Phonographic industry that recognises the best in British and international music, so read on and find out all the latest updates available now!

This award ceremony will be broadcasted on ITV, and it has four new genre categories consisting of Rock, Hip-Hop, Dance, and Pop/R&B, as well as other international categories that were added in place of gendered categories that have now been removed. Moreover, the 2022 BRIT Award has been designed in collaboration with British jewellery designer Hanna Martin, who will be creating sculptures for all British nominees.

Hosting the show this year will be Mo Gilligan, who is taking over after Jack Whitehall previously hosted for four years. When announcing that he is stepping down, Jack Whitehall said, “Sad to say after 4 brilliant years, I’ll be handing on the baton as I’ll be in the US filming another project at the top of next year. Loved doing it so much. All the best to the new host, I pray they treat Mursy, my mixers and sweet little Nialler with the respect they deserve.”

Mo Gilligan, on taking over hosting, said, “It’s an absolute privilege to host the 2022 BRIT Awards. I’m truly honoured to be asked. We’re already in the extensive planning stages and all I can say is, I promise we’re going to give it all we’ve got to create an incredible night for music fans everywhere. Let’s go!”

Hosting the BRITs Red Carpet will be Clara Amfo and Maya Jama, which will broadcast on ITV2 and ITV Hub on the night of the award ceremony. Clara Amfo said, “It is such an honour and pleasure to be part of The BRITs presenting team for 2022. The spirit of celebration from the artists to the viewers is really special and I’m so excited for everyone to see more memories being made on the red carpet and stage in February!”

Maya Jama also added, “I am so excited to be back on presenting duties for the BRITs 2022! I remember watching the show growing up and still can’t quite believe I get to be a part of it. The BRITs Are Coming TV special on ITV has always been one of my favourite shows, it’s such a big celebration, everyone is on top form, and I love seeing so many of my favourite people within the music industry come together for such an incredible night.”
