Even before the BRITS announce, Eilish was making headlines overseas after it was confirmed that she would be recording the new James Bond theme for the upcoming film, No Time To Die.
At 18 years old, Eilish is the youngest person ever to record a song for the James Bond film franchise. Another young talent on the rise, Mabel is already scaling the charts with her recent single, ‘Don’t Call Me Up’, which is also up for Song of the Year, along with Female Solo Artist and New Artist.
It’s been a stellar year for UK talent, with Stormzy releasing his sophomore album Heavy Is The Head on 13 December, the same day Harry Styles dropped his album chart-topper Fine Line.
Jack Whitehall will be returning as host for his third time and the show will broadcast exclusively on ITV.
Ahead of the awards, soul singer Celeste was named the BRITs Rising Star winner for 2020, after being nominated alongside Joy Crookes and Beababadoobee.
