The Carters and Producer Calvin Harris receive high honor at BRIT Awards

Calvin Harris, power couple The Carters and The 1975 were the big winners at the BRIT Awards on Wednesday (20.02.19), as they took home two gongs each.

The 35-year-old DJ and producer won his first ever BRIT at the glitzy ceremony at London’s O2 Arena when he was named Producer of the Year, and followed the win up just moments later when his track ‘One Kiss’ featuring Dua Lipa was named the British Single of the Year.

‘Love It If We Made It’ hitmakers The 1975 – made up of Matty Healy, Ross MacDonald, George Daniel, and Adam Hann – were also big winners on the night, scooping up the night’s biggest award for Album of the Year for their hit record ‘A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships’, whilst also taking home the gong for British Band, after having previously won it in 2017.

And after their British Band win, frontman Matty Healy gave an empowering speech in which he read out words written by his friend, which detailed “male misogyny” in the music industry.

He said: “I just want everyone to listen to me for one sec. Just a couple of sentence that a friend of ours said, and I just thought that we should all really really think about it.

She said:” In music, male misogynistic acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of difficult artists. Whilst women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don’t understand art. Thank you very much.”

Elsewhere in the evening, George Ezra bagged his first ever BRIT Award when he won the prize for British Male Solo Artist, whilst former Critic’s Choice winner Jorja Smith took home the gong for British Female Solo Artist.

Ed Sheeran was awarded the Global Success award for the second year running, whilst Little Mix was honored with British Artist Video of the Year for their hit single ‘Woman Like Me’.
