The Brit Music Awards 2020
Jack Whitehall hosted The 2020 Brit Awards on 18 February 2020 at the O2 Arena in London. This was the 40th edition of the British Phonographic Industry's annual pop music awards.
The Industry has restructured the award categories this year. Several awards have been abolished and others renamed, reducing the number of awards from 13 to 9. One excellent change is that the Awards aims to start giving artists complete artistic control over their performances".] The Committee chairman, David Joseph, said "Most importantly we will be putting creativity, British culture and exceptional performances at the heart of the show to make Brits night a world class celebration."
