Yesterday, the world witnessed the BRIT Awards turn into a fully physical, in-person red carpet event. The British music industry’s most-awaited night was attended by 4,000 people, without social distancing and face mask norms. Although, everyone underwent a Covid test before and after the show. This was done under the UK government’s Events Research Programme to assess the possibility of hosting big, live events with live audiences, without Covid protocols in near future.
The O2 Arena in London was the choice of venue. The audience swooned to performances of music icons, Elton John, Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Coldplay and Dua Lipa. On the red carpet too celebrities didn’t hold back from unleashing their glamourous avatars.
