BRIT Awards 2021 postponed from February to May

The BRIT Awards will take place in May next year, it’s been confirmed.

Amid the ongoing threat of coronavirus, the biggest awards ceremony in the UK music industry is keen to run as normal, with star guests and a full show to a live audience at London’s O2 Arena.

The awards show, which traditionally takes place in mid-February, will now been held at London’s O2 Arena on May 11, 2021.

Organisers reportedly backed the move after extensive consultation with music bosses and broadcasters ITV.

The postponement comes a week after the Golden Globes were pushed back from their usual spot in January to 28 February. This was the date the Oscars were originally planned for, but they have also been moved, to 25 April.

The Grammy awards have not yet been postponed and are still scheduled for 31 January.
