With the controversial decision to removal all gendered categories this year, The BRITs have nominated several acts this year including Dave, Little Simz, Central Cee and D-Block Europe.

From the nominations to the artists hitting the stage, here's everything we know about tonights show!

Who's hosting the Brits 2022?

Comedian Mo Gilligan will be hosting the show this year after long-running host Jack Whitehall stepped down from the roll last year.

Clara Amfo and Maya Jama will be taking on presenting duties for The BRITs Are Coming nominations show + The BRITs 2022 red carpet on the night.

Nella Rose and Munya Chawawa will be co-hosting the livestream red carpet show.

Who is performing at this year's show?

Performing at this year's show is Dave, Little Simz, Adele, Anne-Marie & KSI, Ed Sheeran, Holly Humberstone, Liam Gallagher and Sam Fender.

Doja Cat was originally lined-up to perform at this year's show but had to pull out due after her and her crew tested positive for Covid. In her statement, which she shared with her fans on Twitter she said:

"Unfortunately, due to cases of Covid within my crew, I will no longer be performing at the Brits. My team and I have been in rehearsals for weeks and despite taking the utmost caution, numerous members of my crew (both on and off stage) have tested postive for Covid. It’s simply not safe for us to continue to rehearse together and put each other in harm’s way. I can’t wait to perform for my UK fans as soon as I can. Take care of yourselves".
