The 2021 Brit Awards took place last night and it was easily the first awards show held in the UK that felt somewhat “normal”. With 4,000 people in attendance, no masks and no social distancing, the Brit Awards was able to hold the first semi normal event made up predominately of key workers and NHS staff.

With many celebrities paying homage to our frontliners throughout the show including Dua Lipa and Taylor Swift, it looks like those who were in attendance got a good show too, with some stellar performances and even better, some deadly wins.

Picking up Best British Group, Little Mix took home the award, making them the first female band to ever win the accolade. G’wan girls.

In their acceptance speech, the ladies also shouted out their love to former bandmate Jesy Nelson saying:

“We want to start by thanking our incredible fans, and of course Jesy. We want to thank our management team, our amazing promo team who have been since us since day one. The amazing writers we’ve worked with on Confetti and all the amazing talented creators involved.”

Dua Lipa was one of the biggest winners on the night. Taking home two awards, one for Best Album for Future Nostalgia. Dua dedicated the award to a young man, Folajimi Olubunmi-Adewole who tragically lost his life while attempting to save a woman who jumped into the River Thames from London Bridge.

The whole night was hosted by Jack Whitehall, who, in true character, cracked some jokes, dissed some celebs including Rita Ora and tied the whole show together pretty seamlessly.

As for musical performances, Olivia Rodrigo, one of the standout rising stars of 2020 sang her track Drivers Licence, while the noted performance of the night came from Olly Alexander and Elton John for their rendition of It’s A Sin, with fans branding the performance as one of the best ever in the show’s history.
