Brit Awards 2014

Live Stream, Nominations, Predictions, Tickets

O2 Arena, London, UK, 19 February, 8pm


Brit Awards Adele

The Brit awards are the big music awards ceremony in the UK, an occasion to rival the Grammys in the US and the big name international awards later in the year, the MTV Music Awards and the MTV Europe Music Awards. They've been around in various incarnations since 1977 although only became an annual event in 1982. Earlier versions were actually broadcast live, but an ill-fated occasion featuring Sam Fox and Mick Fleetwood in 1989 put paid to that, and now they're shown on TV delayed by 24 hours.

The main awards are reserved for UK performers, the "Brits" in the title, but in an effort to maintain equality, plus of course with more than a small nod to our trans-atlantic cousins (who, let's be honest, tend to provide the real A-List star value!) there are also several international awards categories.

The ceremony itself was previously held at the iconic Earls Court venue, but since 2011 has moved to the O2 Arena which, although having a similar capacity at around 20,000 is widely regarded as being a more modern and accessible location.

There have been many repeat winners over the years, and the same names do tend to continue to appear, but it will likely be some time before anyone can match the record 17 Brit Awards that have been collected by Robbie Williams (5 of which were shared with his Take That colleagues) - nearest challengers are Annie Lennox with 8 and Coldplay on 7.
