The Brits is one of the most exciting events in the British music industry and we look forward to it every year. With some amazing nominees for 2019, it was hard to predict who would take home the coveted awards. Opening the ceremony, Hugh Jackman blew audiences away with his Greatest Showman number, kicking off the party with an all-singing all-dancing bang.
Check out the winners of this year’s ceremony below – some of them you may be able to catch on tour this year!
British Male Solo Artist – George Ezra
Singer/songwriter Ezra has been nothing but a force to be reckoned with this past year. Releasing his second album in March, Staying At Tamara’s and continuing his phenomenal ascent with bangers Shoutgun and Paradise; there was no stopping him. Last night saw him nominated for a Best Single Brit for ‘Shotgun’, but it was his British Male Solo Artist win that stole the show.
British Group & British Album of the Year – The 1975
The indie pop band have been extremely busy lately. Finishing 2018 off strong with the release of their third studio album A Brief Enquiry into Online Relationships in November, the album picked much critical acclaim – including a 5* review from NME. Their success only continued earlier this year with a sold-out, UK arena tour wowing audiences with their stand-out set designs and lighting.
Huge winners at last night’s ceremony, the group bagged two Brit awards – beating the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Little Mix. You can catch them headlining Reading & Leeds Festival this August!
British Breakthrough Act – Tom Walker
With a voice like an emotional tour de force, Tom Walker has smashed through onto the UK Indie and singer songwriter scene with his career-defining single Leave A Light On. Tom has yet to release a debut album and is already selling out iconic venues, including London’s KOKO and Nottingham’s Rock City. It’s no surprise he scored the Breakthrough Brit this year!
