The BRIT Awards will return in 2024, and the date of the prestigious music event has now been confirmed - but there'll be a new host at the helm.
Mo Gilligan has confirmed that he'll be stepping down after two years as presenter, but so far a replacement has not been announced.
Celebrating the best in the music industry, the BRIT Awards promises to be another star-studded affair and it will now have a primetime spot on TV.
Here is everything that fans need to know.
When will the 2024 BRIT Awards take place?
The BRIT Awards is being sponsored by Mastercard and it will happen on Saturday, 2 March 2024 and the event will be streamed live from the O2 Arena in London on ITV1 and ITVX.
With the likes of Harry Styles winning big at the 2023 edition of the event, this year's awards ceremony proved to be a huge success for ITV – drawing in 4 million viewers in total.
The ceremony previously took place on a weekday but things changed this year when it took place on a Saturday, and thanks to its success with viewers the awards has been given a primetime spot on TV.
Damian Christian, who is back as chair of the BRIT committee for 2024, said: “The move to a Saturday night for the first time proved to be a huge success, so I’m delighted we’ll be back in a primetime slot again in March.
"A Saturday night show helped us lock in our most engaged audience ever, and we’ll be looking to build on that base as we connect with even more fans in 2024.
"Next year’s BRITs will be our most ambitious show yet, with a host of exciting performances from incredible artists, as we look to celebrate the music that soundtracked our 2023.”
Who will host the 2024 BRIT Awards?
Mo Gilligan has announced he will be stepping down as awards host after two years fronting the BRITs ceremony.
The comedian and Masked Singer judge has explained that the 2024 event clashes with his first world tour, so he'll be handing over duties to someone new.
On Monday, 27 November he shared on Instagram: "I've had the most incredible time working on The Brits but unfortunately as I'll be in the US for my first World Tour next spring, I'm sorry to say that I'll be stepping down from hosting duties for 2024 and handing over the baton.
"It's been phenomenal to work on this iconic event. I've loved getting to know all the remarkable people who run The Brit Trust and the outstanding Brit School.
"The tireless work you do to improve lives through the power of music and the creative arts is sensational and I promise to supporting whenever I can.
"Thank you to ITV for making a young man's dream come true and to all the brilliant performers, guests, production team and most importantly, the viewers at home for all your amazing support. It's been an honour. See you on tour!"
So far, his replacement has not been named as a BRITs spokesperson said: "The BRITs are incredibly proud of Mo hosting the awards for the last two years, he is an exceptional entertainer who is going from strength to strength in his career, and we thank him for delivering two brilliant shows for us.
"The live awards show is always evolving, and we are excited to welcome someone new to the helm for 2024, with more details to be announced at a later date."
Gilligan took over from fellow comedian Jack Whitehall, while BBC Radio 1 presenter Clara Amfo has been involved in launch show hosting duties in recent years as has Maya Jama, and Emma Willis has been part of the presenting line-up.
Other popular recent hosts have included Ant and Dec, and James Corden.
Who is nominated at the 2024 BRIT Awards?
As the big day approaches, we're starting to get a better idea of which bands and artists have been nominated for 2024's big awards.
In late November, it was revealed that Caity Baser, The Last Dinner Party and Sekou were each nominated for the BRIT Rising Star Award.
Previous winners of this prize include Adele, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding and Sam Fender. The winner of the BRIT Rising Star award will be revealed on Thursday, 7 December 2024.
Further nominations for 2024's full ceremony have yet to be revealed but details are expected to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
The 2021 BRIT awards saw the Best Male and Best Female shortlists be scrapped in favour of a general winners list in order to have a more inclusive ceremony that could also cater to non-binary musicians. However in 2023 this led to a male-dominated winners list.
During the 2023 edition Styles was the big winner of the night, taking home four prizes including the Artist of the Year award. Elsewhere, Beyoncé won two awards, as did Wet Leg.
The 2024 BRIT Awards with Mastercard will take place on Saturday, 2 March 2024 and it will air exclusively on ITV1 and ITVX.
