BRITs are gender neutral: The Bosses eliminate male and female categories before the ‘woke 2022 ceremony to honor artists “solely for their songs”

The Brit Awards have scrapped male and female categories ahead of their ‘woke’ 2022 ceremony.

Bosses created gender-neutral gongs for them to honor artists for what they do, and not how others see them.

There will be prizes for the best male solo artist, best female solo artist, best international male solo artist and the best female solo artist.

This is all about to change. The Brit Awards will now recognize male and female categories in the next ceremony. Sam Smith was pictured attending the February 2020 event.

The Brits academy is under increasing pressure to end its female and male-specific awards. The Brits will now recognize musicians’solely because of their music and works, and not for how they identify themselves or how other people may view them. As part Of The Brits’ ongoing commitment to making the show as inclusive and relevant as possible, the move will be made.

Brits’ voting academy comprises around 1200 industry professionals from all media and music genres. This includes artists, labels as well as promoters, producers, musicians, retailers, and others. The 2014 critics’ choice winner, Sam Smith (popstar), identified as non-binary and used the pronouns they/them to identify himself. They previously requested the change, saying that they hoped for a time where awards shows would be’reflective’ of our society.

Four new awards will be presented at the 2022 ceremony. All four will be determined by public vote: alternative/rock, hip hop/grime/rap acts; dance act, and pop/R&B artist. In the meantime, the Song of the Year Prize will not only recognize lead artists and named collaborators, but also the featured artists.

Mo Gilligan, Jack Whitehall’s host, will be hosting the program again on February 8, 2022.

“It is an honor to host the 2022 Brit Award,” said the comedian. Being asked is an honour. “We are already in the planning stage and I cannot speak for them, but I do promise that we will give our all to make this an unforgettable night for all music lovers. Let’s go!’

Clara Amfo will host The Brits Are Coming’s nominations show, while Maya Jama will host the red carpet event.

Tom March is the Brit Chair and Co-President of Polydor Records. He stated: “It’s important that the Brits continue evolving and strive to be as inclusive and inclusive as possible.

“It’s a great time to recognize the accomplishments of musicians for their music and work, regardless of gender.

“I am really excited about launching four new genre Awards, which provide more opportunities for musicians to be recognized for their brilliant music and allow music fans to vote for them and support them in winning a Brit.

“The 2022 Show is looking really good, Mo is going be an excellent host. Clara as well Maya are a great team and we thank them for participating in this year’s Brits. ITV will broadcast the Brit Awards 2022 live at London’s 02 Arena on February 8, 2022.
