Everything You Missed At The Brit Awards 2021

The Brit Awards – which usually take place in February, but had to be delayed due to pandemic precautions – took place at The O2 yesterday, celebrating musical talent from Britain and all around the world.

Here are some of my favourite moments from the evening:

Red Carpet Looks

Gorgeous: Taylor Swift looked sparkly and stunning when she made her appearance on the red carpet.

Mr Styles: Harry Styles loves experimenting with new fashion choices. The 1D star collected his British Male Solo Artist Award looking dapper with his new hair and Gucci suit.

DeJa Vu: There was nothing Deja Vu about music’s newest star making her Brit debut in a stylish sunshine dress.

Salute: The now-trio, Little Mix, looked radiant in their matching white gowns. Perrie and Leigh-Anne also showed off their baby bumps as the Littler Little Mix made their first red carpet appearance.


Driver’s Licence – Olivia Rodrigo

Olivia Rodrigo performed her global hit, Driver’s Licence, after a costume change. The star wore a beautiful Dior outfit, which was as stunning and smooth as the singer’s vocals. The performance featured the singer, a pianist and a harpist, making for a beautifully stripped back performance, complete with butterfly projections.

Black Hole – Griff

Another new singer, Griff, performed her popular track Black Hole, before receiving her rising star award. I haven’t actually seen or heard of Griff before (or half this year’s nominees…am I old?!) but she won me over with this song – which would be perfect for Eurovision – and her acceptance speech (mentioned below).

Anywhere Away From Here Rag ‘n’ Bone Man ft Pink and The NHS Choir

Rag ‘n’ Bone Man ft Pink and Greenwich NHS Choirs closed off the show with their charity single, Anywhere Away From Here. The performance, which saw Pink appearing on the big screen whilst the choirs and Rag ‘n’ Bone man perform live, was met with a standing ovation.

Highlights of the Evening

The Audience

A unique part of this year’s show – and one of my favourite highlights – is the fact that the audience was made up of key workers. What a great way to say thank you to music-loving key workers. I just wonder how the lucky few were chosen!

Taylor Swift Just Being There

I knew she would (deservedly) be winning the Global Icon Award, but I had no idea that Taylor Swift would be in attendance! She also gave an awesome speech, as per usual. My favourite line of the speech was “people have the right to say whatever they want about you. But you have the right to prove them wrong” (paraphrased). Drop the mic, girl!

Griff’s Acceptance Speech

The acceptance speeches throughout the show were special, with most artists thanking the NHS, and dedicating their awards to various heroes. The Breakthrough Artist Award winner, Griff, also talked about God’s faithfulness in her speech. We love to see it!
