After winning Album of the Year last week at the Grammys, Harry Styles is headed home to Britain with four nominations (and currently two wins) for the BRIT Awards. He kicked off the show without a malfunctioning stage to sing “As It Was” and even thanked fellow One Direction members Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, and Niall Horan during his acceptance speech for Artist of the Year. Other performers include some fellow artists who got a warm-up at the Grammys, like Lizzo, Kim Petras, and Sam Smith. David Guetta, Becky Hill, and Ella Henderson, Stormzy, Lewis Capaldi, Cat Burns, and Wet Leg are also set to take the stage.

As for the prizes of the evening, another artist besides Styles with four nominations is Wet Leg for Best New Artist, Group of the Year, Album of the Year, and Rock/Alternative Act. This year’s nominations include several first, with BLACKPINK becoming the first Kpop girl group nominated for Best International Artist and Sam Ryder becoming the first Eurovision artist nominated for Best New Artist. There has been some dispute over the lack of nominations for women in the Best Artist category, specifically eligible non-nominated artists like Florence and the Machine and Charli XCX. It became a non-gendered category just last year but the BRITs claimed that the all male nominees were a result of “fewer high profile women artists in cycle with major releases.”

Below are the winners for the 2023 BRIT Awards:
