The Brit Awards 2015 will take place on Wednesday, February 25, and will return to London’s O2 Arena for the fifth time, it has been confirmed.
Organisers have also confirmed that the ceremony will be once again broadcast live on ITV but will not be presented by four-time host James Corden, who stood down after this year’s event. BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw has expressed his interest in taking over.
The confirmation of next year’s ceremony comes with a batch of new appointments to the Brits Committee, who put the annual show together. Warner Music UK CEO Max Lousada has been named as the new Chairman of the BRITs Committee, with responsibilities including the creative direction of the show, the management of the Award categories, artist line up, Voting Academy and the digital and media strategy.
Among Lousada’s first appointments are Stage Designer Es Devlin, who has worked with artists including Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Take That, Lady Gaga and Muse and designed the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony. Willo Perron, who has worked with artists including Jay Z, Beck, Rihanna, Florence + The Machine and Coldplay, has been named Creative Director.

Speaking via Kate Moss at the same event, David Bowie used the platform to comment on the issue of Scottish independence, saying “Scotland, stay with us.”
