The 2024 Brit Awards – the U.K.’s equivalent of the Grammys – are unfolding at The O2 Arena in London. Dua Lipa was set to open the show, just as she opened the Grammy telecast on Feb. 4. Kylie Minogue, who will receive the Global Icon Award, is set to close the show.

RAYE led the nominations for this year’s Brits with seven nods, which made her the most nominated artist in a single year since the Brits began in 1977. Central Cee and J Hus each received four nods. Lipa received three. 2024 also saw the first Brit nomination for The Rolling Stones in more than a decade. The legendary band is nominated for alternative/rock act.

Clara Amfo, Maya Jama and Roman Kemp are co-hosting the ceremony, which is being broadcast in the U.K. on ITV1, STV, ITVX and STV Player. Fans outside the U.K. can watch the show via an exclusive YouTube livestream.

For 2024, The Brits increased the number of nominees for both artist of the year and international artist of the year from five to 10, a change aimed at improving representation and inclusion. The Brits have a whopping 15 nominations in two categories – song of the year and international song of the year.

The British pop/R&B act category was split in two this year — British pop act and British R&B act. Winners in both categories, as well as the three other genre categories – alternative/rock, dance and hip-hop/grime/rap – were decided by a public vote via Instagram from Feb. 1-15.

In December, The Brits announced The Last Dinner Party as the winner of the 2024 Rising Star award.

RAYE won Songwriter of the Year. The two previous winners of that award are Ed Sheeran and Kid Harpoon, which makes RAYE the first woman to receive the honor.

Chase & Status are this year’s Producer of the Year winners. The electronic music duo, consisting of Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status), is also nominated for group of the year. They have produced not only their own releases, but the works of such other acts as Becky Hill, Rihanna, Rita Ora and Tinie Tempah. Chase & Status are the fourth multi-person production team to win Producer of the Year, following Stock Aitken Waterman (1988), Chris Potter, The Verve & Youth (1998) and Alan Moulder & Flood (2014).
