The winners of this year’s BRIT Awards have been announced.
With a big flashy ceremony held at London’s O2 Arena last night, the big winner was Dua Lipa – who walked away with both the awards for Female Solo Artist and the Mastercard Album gong for her latest full-length ‘Future Nostalgia’.
The ceremony was the first live music event at The O2 in over a year, acting as one of the test events for a return to gigs to follow. Audience members were limited, but were not required to socially distance or wear face coverings. They did, however, have to show proof of a negative lateral flow test to attend, and have been asked to take a second post event.
