The 40th instalment of the U.K. award show was once again hosted by English comedian Jack Whitehall, who ensured for laughs throughout the evening.
The big winners of the Brit Awards were singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi and rapper Dave.
Lewis Capaldi took home the awards for Best New Artist and Best Song for his single “Someone You Loved,” which he performed at the ceremony. Capaldi also sung “Loved” during the show, after Whitehall paid homage to Caroline Flack, the Love Island host who died on February 15, 2020 – three days prior.
However, rapper Dave received the biggest award of the night: Best Album for “Psychodrama,” from which he performed the single “Black” on the piano. The album is only the second rap album in three years to win the award, after Stormzy’s “Gang Signs & Prayers” became the first rap LP ever to do so back in 2018.
Moving to the non-British artists, Billie Eilish once again beat her close ‘rivals’ from the Grammy’s, Ariana Grande and Lizzo, and won International female solo artist. The superstar also delivered the most anticipated performance of the evening when she debuted the theme song for the new James Bond movie “No Time to Die,” alongside her brother/writer/producer Finneas.
