The BRIT Awards are going to be held on February 21st 2018, and will be returning to The O2 London for the 8th year in a row. During the ceremony, BRIT Awards trophies will be presented to winning bands and artists in various categories.

You can watch the event live on ITV from 6 pm ITV on February 21
