Mo Gilligan is to takeover as host with Jack Whitehall previously announcing he will be stepping down after four years.
Jack said: “Sad to say after 4 brilliant years, I’ll be handing on the baton as I’ll be in the US filming another project at the top of next year. Loved doing it so much. All the best to the new host, I pray they treat Mursy, my mixers and sweet little Nialler with the respect they deserve.”
On taking over, Mo enthused: “It’s an absolute privilege to host the 2022 BRIT Awards. I’m truly honoured to be asked. We’re already in the extensive planning stages and all I can say is, I promise we’re going to give it all we’ve got to create an incredible night for music fans everywhere. Let’s go!”
Alongside the main show, Clara Amfo and Maya Jama will host the 2022 BRITs Red Carpet show.
It will air from 7PM ITV2 and ITV Hub in the UK or via the BRITs YouTube channel internationally.
Clara said: “It is such an honour and pleasure to be part of The BRITs presenting team for 2022. The spirit of celebration from the artists to the viewers is really special and I’m so excited for everyone to see more memories being made on the red carpet and stage in February!”
Maya added: “I am so excited to be back on presenting duties for the BRITs 2022! I remember watching the show growing up and still can’t quite believe I get to be a part of it.”
As ever, the BRITs will reward the music achievements of both British and international artists over the past year. The nominations were revealed last year.
There are some big changes for 2022, with gendered artist awards being condensed into Artist of the Year and International Artist of the Year.
Furthermore, there will be the introduction of four new genre awards – Alternative/Rock Act, Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act, Dance Act and Pop/R’n’B Act.
Alongside the awards, there will be a number of special performances from the world’s biggest names in music.
