The 'BRIT Awards' 2024: What you need to know

What are the BRIT Awards?

This year is the 44th edition of the BRIT Awards, which first took place in 1977, became an annual event in 1982 and have been broadcast live on television since 1988 (although from 1990-2006 was broadcast on a 24-hour delay).

The BRITs are the highest profile music industry awards in the U.K. with the ceremony being an entertainment spectacle with some of the worlds biggest stars performing over the years, including The Spice Girls, Adele, Madonna, Michael Jackson and Oasis. 

The show has also developed a reputation for controversial moments including Mick Fleetwood and Samantha Fox's disastrous hosting of the 1989 edition (that resulted in the show being pre-recorded for the next 16 years), Jarvis Cocker's 1996 Michael Jackson protest and Danbert Nobacon of the band Chumbawamba dumping a bucket of iced water over then-Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott in 1998.

Who is hosting the BRIT Awards 2024?

This years BRITs are being hosted by the trio of Maya Jama, Roman Kemp and Clara Amfo. 

On her appointment, Amfo said: "Hosting the BRITs is a bucket list job, I’m so very honoured and excited for this year’s show. Throughout my career, I’ve been so lucky to witness the growth of this year’s nominees and performers and I know it’s gonna be another special one. I can’t wait to hit the stage with Maya and Roman to celebrate these amazing artists at The O2!"

While Jama added: "I'm really excited to be hosting the BRIT Awards alongside Clara and Roman. I’ve worked alongside the incredible team at the BRITs for years now and it’s something I always watched, and wanted to be a part of, growing up - so it’s amazing to be on the stage this year hosting it! It’s always one of the best nights of the year for me, and a real celebration of British music, culture, and talent."

And Kemp had this to say: "This is a real pinch me moment! Hosting the BRIT Awards - what an honour. I remember watching the BRITs on TV when I was growing up so to be asked to host this year’s awards, is a dream come true. It’s going to be a privilege to share the stage with so many talented artists and to celebrate the incredible achievements of all the nominees and winners this year. See you there."

Who is performing at the BRIT Awards 2024?

Confirmed to be performing during this year's ceremony are: 

  • Dua Lipa
  • Raye
  • Kylie Minogue
  • Rema
  • Jungle
  • Becky Hill and Chase & Status
  • Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding
  • Tate McRae

Is there BRIT Awards 2024 Red Carpet coverage?

Red Carpet coverage for the BRITs is being broadcast on ITV2 prior to the show and hosted by Yinka Bokinni ("The Apprentice: You're Fired") and Jack Saunders. The pair will also host The Brits' Aftershow on ITVX following the main show's conclusion at 10.50 p.m. GMT. 

What can we expect from the BRIT Awards 2024?

Speaking to "MusicWeek," showrunner Damien Christian had this to say:

On Kylie: "I think it's going to be brilliant. We started talking to Kylie's people in May last year and they really wanted to be on the show. I loved the enthusiasm they brought and how much she wanted to do it. We would have been tempted anyway, but she had an amazing year – "Padam Padam" was her biggest hit single for years and years – and when you have a big moment again, you come back into vogue to another generation of people. She’s iconic over here."

On this year's line up: "You've got superstars and collaborations. You've got African music, British bands, Kylie and an American superstar in there as well. If you go through it, there really is something for everybody. It's hard to get your eight moments in reflecting last year, and it also [depends] who's available. We respect ITV enormously for giving us their Saturday night, but we've got to make sure the "BRIT Awards" is done the right way as well. It can't all be glitzy; some of it's got to be about the music industry and the success stories of last year. One of the things we ask everybody is to do their big song. Historically, people will come in and want to do their new song, or a B-side Argentinian import, but you're thinking, "No, go for your big song for a Saturday night." And everyone has basically said, "Yeah, that makes sense," because it's a reflection of the last year."

And visual artist Rachel Jones contributed: "The "Brits" is a huge celebration of the breadth and multitude of talent that’s shaping and defining British culture, and it’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be involved in such a monumental moment. I’m beyond excited that I’ve been able to contribute something artistic towards this year’s ceremony, and I can’t wait to celebrate with all the nominees."

Where are the BRIT Awards 2024 taking place?

This year's BRIT Awards will take place at the 02 Arena, which has been the home of the ceremony since 2011. 

Previously, the awards took place at the Grosvenor Hotel from 1982-1987, the Royal Albert Hall from 1988-1989, the Dominion Theatre from 1990-1991, Hammersmith Odeon in 1992, Alexandra Palace from 1993-1995, Earls Court from 1996-1997, the London Arena from 1998-1999 and Earls Court again from 2000-2010.
