Details of next year’s BRIT Awards have been announced with the event set to be staged for the first time on a Saturday.
The bash will be held on February 11 at the O2 Arena and will be broadcast on ITV again for the 30th year.
Award organisers also announced that Managing Director of Atlantic Records, Damian Christian will be taking over as Chair of the BRIT Committee for 2023.
Commenting on the new date, Christian said: “The BRITs is the biggest night of the year for the UK music industry, and we want as many eyes on it as possible as we showcase the best and most diverse British talent. Moving the show to a Saturday will breathe new life into the iconic ceremony, while also introducing a new and more engaged audience.”
While this was the lowest in the show’s history, a drop from 2.9 million viewers for 2021’s event, this figure didn’t count viewers around the world who streamed it digitally on YouTube or catch-up service ITV Hub.
Adele was the big winner on the night, taking three awards including the coveted Album Of The Year for her fourth LP ‘30’.
Other winners included Little Simz, who picked up Best New Artist, while Wolf Alice won Best Group after their third album ‘Blue Weekend’.
