Brits at 40
A worthy look back over the history of the Britannia Awards, the highs and lows, great performances, mishaps, and what really went wrong with Mick Fleetwood and Sam Fox in 1989. Host Jack Whitehall handled the voice-over, and many stars and contributors past & present were sometimes surprisingly passionate about the show. The Brit School and the Rising Star award was discussed, and many of the Outstanding Contributors were mentioned (Cliff Richard was both an early winner in the late 1970s, and given the OC tag later).

Brit Awards 2020 - Red Carpet
An amusing pre-show effort with Lewis Capaldi performing Bruises, and presenters Clara Amfo and Alice Levine chatting to many guests including Sir Tom Jones, Mabel, Stormzy, Burna Boy, Anne-Marie and Lewis Capaldi.

The Brit Awards 2020
Jack Whitehall presented again. Lewis Capaldi and Billie Eilish were among the winners and performers. There were few surprises though. Dave used a performance to call out the Prime Minister for being a racist. The show closed with Rod Stewart and the other 2 surviving Faces for a performance more about his recent #1 album than any respect for the Faces.

The 2021 Brit Awards have been pushed back from next February to next May, in the hope things will be more normal by then.

Nominations for the 2021 Grammys have been revealed. Beyonce and Dua Lipa have got a lot, but the Weeknd has got zilch, and he's called the process "corrupt".

Drake has also added his $0.02, calling for the Grammys to be replaced by something new and more modern.

The Grammys were last night:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-56397324

Beyonce did well, somehow:
Beyoncé has set a new record at the Grammy Awards with her 28th win.

The star is now the most-awarded woman in Grammys history, overtaking bluegrass singer Alison Krauss.
Taylor Swift also basked in success:
Taylor Swift also made history at Sunday's ceremony, by becoming the first female artist ever to win album of the year three times.

The star was rewarded for her lockdown album Folklore - after previously winning with Fearless in 2010 and the pop opus 1989 in 2016.

Only three other artists have ever won the album of the year prize three times: Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder.

Looking at the list of winners, it's all a bit odd, really.

The Weeknd followed up his wrath at being ignored by claiming he won't accept future nominations either.

Next month's Brit Awards event will be another experiment in audience terms, given the whole "reopen the economy if it's safe" thing:

Live later this week, there has been announced today a 4th winner of the "Global Icon" award. In the footsteps of David Bowie, Elton John and Robbie Williams will be the first female and "International" winner... Taylor Swift  Exclamation

Meanwhile, proposed changes to the Grammys have been rescinded after complaints, but the Weeknd has made plain he's still not satisfied.

Brit Awards 2021
Jack Whitehall presented at the O2 Arena, with a limited live audience. Performances ranged from Coldplay and Olivia Rodrigo to Arlo Parks and Headie One. The Weeknd appeared from somewhere else, Elton John played piano as Years & Years' Olly Alexander covered It's A Sin, and Dua Lipa did a medley of her hits. Winners included Little Mix, J Hus, Billie Eilish and Haim. Not all that bad a show, really.

The Brits have announced that from next year there won't be separate "Best Male" or "Best Female" categories. Brian May has been one who has complained at this stance.

Brian May was quick to deny having any such complaint.

The three contenders for the next Rising Star award (formerly the Critic's Choice award) have been named and they are:

Holly Humberstone
Lola Young
Bree Runway

It's an all-female list then. At least I'm familiar with 2 of the 3.

Perhaps predictably, Holly Humberstone got the nod.

Brit Awards 2022 - Red Carpet
Somewhat fluffy pre-show show, with Becky Hill doing a short medley, but presenters Maya Jama and Clara Amfo talking to various presenters and nominees (including Jodie Whittaker), and host Mo Gilligan.

The Brit Awards 2022
Mo did OK as 1st time host, there were a mix of performances from Adele, Ed Sheeran, Sam Fender and Little Simz, with the awards being fairly unsurprising (Adele won most, but Wolf Alice, Dave and Silk Sonic all got nods too).

They were last night. The Foo Fighters won 3, other big winners were Silk Sonic, Olivia Rodrigo, and someone called Jon Batiste, who's so successful that I hadn't heard of him at all before yesterday.
