The BRIT Awards 2019 have announced details of ‘The BRITs Are Coming’ TV special which will air at 5pm on Saturday 12th January 2019 on ITV.
The one-hour show will be hosted by Clara Amfo and will exclusively reveal the much anticipated nominations for The BRIT Awards.
Alongside the shortlist reveal for ‘British Male/Female’, ‘British Breakthrough’, ‘British Group’, ‘British Single’, ‘British Artist Video of the Year’, ‘International Male/Female’, ‘International Group’, and the highly sought after ‘Mastercard British Album of the Year’, the show will feature exclusive performances by some of the UK’s most exciting music acts, including Little Mix, George Ezra and Not3s.
BRITs Chairman and Chairman & CEO of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “I am delighted that Clara has agreed to host our nominations show for 2019, she is a fantastic presenter and broadcaster, and the perfect choice for our new prime-time Saturday slot. The line up is a true reflection of the best of British music right now and I am excited to see the performances as we announce the nominations for next year’s BRITs.”
The world’s biggest girl band, Little Mix have achieved five UK Top Ten albums and 13 Top Ten singles, making them one of the UK’s biggest selling girl bands of all time. Winning ‘Best British Single’ at the 2017 BRITs for ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ where they also performed, they recently released their fifth studio album ‘LM5’ which included the hit single ‘Woman Like Me’ featuring Nicki Minaj.
George Ezra has had a phenomenal year; scoring his first chart topping single in the UK, Ireland and Australia with ‘Shotgun’, taken from his second studio album ‘Staying at Tamara’s’ which followed his debut ‘Wanted On Voyage’ to #1 in the UK Album Charts, and becoming the best selling artist album of 2018. A four-time BRIT nominee, he launched his successful George Ezra & Friends podcast series earlier this year with guests including Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Lily Allen and Niall Horan all taking part over the past few months.
London rapper Not3s and 2018 BRITs Critics’ Choice nominee Mabel are two of the hottest young music acts in the UK right now, with two Top 20 single collaborations: the 2017 Mabel remix of Not3s’ ‘My Lover’, and Mabel ft Not3s’ ‘Fine Line’ from this year.
The BRIT Awards 2019 with Mastercard takes place on Wednesday 20th February at The O2 Arena, London, exclusively broadcast on ITV and hosted by Jack Whitehall. The winners’ awards have been designed by acclaimed architect Sir David Adjaye OBE.
