The 2021 BRIT Awards are almost upon us, and due to the lack of live music we've had access to in the past year, we can barely contain our excitement. So far, the nominees for the rising star award have been announced, alongside the winner, and some of the artists who will perform at this year's ceremony. Griff was announced as the rising star winner back on 19 March, and on 30 March, her and Dua Lipa were confirmed to be performing live on the night.
The nominees for this year's awards have finally been announced, and we're truly impressed by the phenomenal range of talent that this past year has brought. The ceremony is set to take place on 11 May 2021 at the O2 Academy (which will be the first music event to take place there in over a year), and will be broadcast live on ITV.
Read on to discover all the nominees for this year's BRIT Awards 2021.
