It’s time to savor the glamor — excuse us, savour the glamour — of the British Phonographic Industry’s annual celebration of excellence, the 2021 BRIT Awards. The UK’s biggest night of music is a little different this time around; the organization recently changed its nationality requirements, in part due to pressure from longtime UK resident Rina Sawayama.
This year’s edition features performances from Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, The Weeknd with Oneohtrix Point Never, Coldplay, and Arlo Parks, as well as duets from Rag’n’Bone Man and P!nk, Olly Alexander and Elton John, and more.
