A GLOSSY POP GUIDE TO THE BRIT AWARDS

We'll be bringing you all the action live on Wednesday night at London's O2 Arena for the Brit Awards. To bring you up to date with the biggest music awards in the UK, we have pulled together a Glossy Pop Guide to the awards, from the nominees to the live performances on the night.

We will be dedicating our Instagram and Snapchat on Wednesday 21st February to the Brit Awards, so make sure you follow us!

 

WHEN AND WHERE?
The 38th Brit Awards will be taking place from 8pm on Wednesday, February 21. The ceremony is being hosted at The O2 in London for the eighth year in a row.

 

WHO IS HOSTING?
Comedian Jack Whitehall will be bringing his bashful posh-boy delivery to the show. He hosted the British Fashion Council's awards last year so he should be a safe and entertaining compere. Brit Awards chairman Jason Iley said Whitehall would provide "enormous enthusiasm, charisma, fun and passion".

 

WHO IS PERFORMING LIVE?
Everyone, it seems. Nominees Rag’n’Bone Man, Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, and Stormzy will all be playing, alongside Rita Ora, Foo Fighters, 2018 Critics' Choice winner Jorja Smith, Sam Smith, and Justin Timberlake (fresh from his Super Bowl halftime performance). It's Timberlake's third time singing at the show, with his 2003 medley with Kylie Minogue beingparticularly memorable. You can expect to hear some fresh tracks from his new album Man of the Woods.
