This year’s BRIT Awards saw standout performances from Taylor Swift, Elton John, The Weeknd, Coldplay and Dua Lipa at one of the first live music events in the UK following the global pandemic.

Meanwhile, Queen‘s Brian May recently criticised the BRIT Awards’ decision to scrap their traditional gendered system for awards categories, calling it emblematic of a “frightening” trend.

He then defended himself after criticism over comments regarding the trans community, saying his words were “subtly twisted” by a journalist.
