The Brit Awards, oftentimes referred to as the Brits, are the British Phonographic Industry’s annual popular music awards organized to celebrate the achievements of British and international artists and musicians in the previous year.


The name, originally a shortened form of “British”, subsequently became a backronym for British Record Industry Trusts Show.


Singer and songwriter, Ariana Grande won the Best International Female act award while Drake won his second BRIT award for the Best International Male.


The award for Best International Group went to The Carters (Beyonce and Jay Z).


Beyonce and Jay Z had won BRIT awards as individuals in past years; the latest award was their first award together as a group.


Also, British boy band: The 1975, was the big winner at the show, taking home the awards for best British group and album of the year.


The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the awards were first held in 1977 and originated as an annual event in 1982.


According to The BRIT Awards website, the list of eligible artists, albums, and singles is compiled by the official Charts Company.


It was submitted to the voting academy, which consists of over 1,000 members of the music industry, including the previous year’s nominees and winners.


The 2019 show which held at The O2 Arena, London was hosted by award-winning comedian and actor, Jack Whitehall.
