Mo Gilligan will host the 2022 BRIT Awards live on ITV, it has been announced.
Clara Amfo and Maya Jama are set to present the ‘The BRITs Are Coming’ nominations show and the BRITs Red Carpet show on the night.
Mo Gilligan said: "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!"
Moreover, four new genre categories have been added. They are Alternative/Rock Act, Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act, Dance Act and Pop/R’n’B Act. Artist of the Year and International Artist of the Year awards replace the traditional Male and Female categories from previous years.
BRIT Chair Tom March commented: "It is important that The BRITs continue to evolve and aim to be as inclusive as possible. It feels completely the right time to celebrate the achievements of artists for the music that they create, and the work that they do, irrespective of gender...
"I’m really excited to launch four new genre awards, which create even more opportunities for artists to be acknowledged for the brilliant music they create and produce, and give music fans the chance to get involved and vote to support their artists and help them to win a BRIT."
