The BRIT Awards 2023: When and how to watch, list of nominees and performances

The BRIT Awards is one of the best nights of the year for celebrating the incredible talents within the music industry and it's returning to our screens this weekend.

For the first time ever the event will take place on a Saturday night and fans can't wait to watch it.

Yet again, the event will be hosted by comedian Mo Gilligan, who has said that it will be “even bigger this year”.

Speaking ahead of glittering ceremony, Mo said: “Hosting the Brits last year was one of the most phenomenal moments of my life.

“I’ve been so honoured to get to know the incredible team behind the biggest night in music and so proud to bring our amazing audiences even closer to their favourite artists. I promise you, we’re going to go even bigger this year… Let’s go!”
