Back in July, Sawayama criticised the eligibility rules of major British music awards after she was omitted from the list of nominees for the 2020 Mercury Prize.

“I fundamentally don’t agree with this definition of Britishness,” Sawayama said in an interview at the time about the rules, which prevented her from entering this year’s Mercurys. “I think I’m really British, and I don’t like just sorting out a symptom of something and leaving the cause to someone else to deal with.


“If arts awards are creating their own sort of version of border control around their eligibility, I think that’s really problematic.”

Sawayama later confirmed that the British Phonographic Industry had taken her criticism on board by indicating that they would review their eligibility criteria for future award ceremonies.
