Brits 2019: The winners


Share This Article:

On Wednesday night, some of the biggest names in the music industry headed down to London’s O2 arena for the 39th annual Brit awards, with the likes of Jorja Smith, George Ezra and The 1975 coming out on top with big wins. 

Hugh Jackman opened the show with a Greatest Showman extravaganza and the likes of Calvin Harris, Jess Glynne, Dua Lipa and Little Mix all took to the stage throughout the night, with P!nk closing the ceremony. 

George Ezra took home the first prize of the night for ‘Best British male solo artist’, while The 1975’s Matty Healey gave a nod to the misogynistic ways of the industry in his acceptance speech after winning best British group and later on, Best British Album for their critically acclaimed A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.

It was also the night of first-time winners, with Calvin Harris bagging his first ever Brit awards for British Single for 'One Kiss' with Dua Lipa and Best British producer, and Jorja Smith scooping the big prize with British female solo artist.

As well as the show drawing attention to some of the most successful and deserving names in the music industry, it also gave us some very memorable moments.

Probably one of the most memorable being Jay Z and Beyoncé’s (aka The Carters) acceptance speech. The pair won ‘best international group’ and although they couldn’t attend the ceremony itself, they filmed a video message in an obvious recreation of their popular ‘apesh*t’ video, stood in front of a painting of Megan Markle depicted as the Queen.
