2020 BRIT Awards Highlights

The Brit Awards, one of Britain’s most important music events, took place yesterday. Now that it has gone, there’s a list of winners and highlights that need to be shared, such as Billie Ellish‘s ‘No Time to Die’ James Bond theme live performance. The singer was joined on stage by the one and only Hans Zimmer and artist Finneas, with whom she actually worked on creating the soundtrack. Last night’s event not only means performing for the young artist but winning as well. Ellish went home with the International Female Solo Artist Award, from an intimidating list of nominees.

Harry Styles is another artist who kept having moments at the Brit Awards, most talked about being the fashion choices he made for the night, as the singer had several outfits changes. We all know Styles is not one to blend with the rest and can set trends, as it seems he already done with the shoes he wore. Imagine the power! On top of him becoming the star of the night, he had a moment on stage to performt ‘Falling’ from his second album Fine Line, released 16th November 2019.

As for winners, there are plenty to mention, such as the charismatic Mabel, who won the Female Solo Artist Award. The male version of the same award went to British rapper Stormzy. This is not a surprise since his most recent album Heavy is the Head, is a big success in the UK since the day of release 13th December 2019. Other winners include English rock band Foals with Best Group Award and Scottish singer and songwriter Lewis Capaldi who received Best Song Award for his successful track ‘Someone You Loved’, with whom he was nominated at the 62nd Grammy Awards.

Other artists performing: Rod Stewart and Lizzo.

 

Grammy Awards: Winners, Best of Fashion and More

Grammy Awards was the event everyone was looking for to check out and now that it finally happened (I’ve been waiting for it for sure), we can gather around for a virtual cup of tea or whatever you wish to have, and break down all that it happened, in Glaibera’s style, of course.

Fashion-wise there has been lots of metallics – even Michelle Obama appeared in a dark sparkling pantsuit, next to J. Lo., Alicia Keys, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Lady Gaga. All ladies seemed to have spoken beforehand since each of them had the spark in the outfit.

Speaking of Gaga, the actress and singer left home loaded with trophies, which was expected to happen, thanks to her collab with Bradley Cooper on the movie ” A Star is Born” where the track “Shallow” touched the right place for many. For her red carpet appearance, the artist looked amazing. No extravagant hairstyle, but a platinum blond with beachy waves look framed her face while rocking a smudgy cat eye look. The dress is silver metallic, with an elongated sort of bow on the side and with a leg view. By far, her look is one the best from Grammy Awards.

The second favorite look is Dua Lipa’s black and white and safety pins dress in which she accepted her Best New Artist Award. And that was only one of the two awards she got in one night, second being for her Electricity track – Best Dance Recording, a win she shares with fellow artist Diplo.

Amongst the guests, I’ve seen my favorite couple, Ashley Simpson and Evan Ross, both looking as dashing as always. BTS members were there too, invited to hand over the Best R&B Album Award. On the stage, before announcing the winner, RM thanked the Army and made the promise to be back. Then H.E.R. came and took her Grammy award. And that’s about it. Well not entirely. Gabriella Wilson, known as H.E.R., also won Best R&B Performance for “Best Part”.

Moving on to performances on stage, I have to fangirl over the handsome latin trio – Ricky Martin, Camila Cabello, and J. Balvin. Dressed and white, yellow and red and rocking the stage. What a treat for their fans!

Other wins:
Kacey Musgraves won album of the year trophy and Best Country Album with “Golden Hour”. A few hours ago had no idea this name even existed, till I had to write this article, and by curiosity clicked on one of her tracks. Instant crush, let me tell you!

American Roots Performance Award and Americana Album Award went to Brandy Carlile with “The Joke” and album “By The Way, I Forgive You“.
