Stormzy have been announced as the latest band to perform at the BRIT Awards 2023 in London next month.

Today (January 26) Stormzy was announced as the last artist to perform at the ceremony, which was his first performance at BRIT since 2020.

BRITs recently faced criticism due to the fact that the category “Artist of the Year in the UK” consists of all male artists, and Central Cee, Fred … again, George Ezra, Stormzy and Harry Styles were shortlisted. This happened after the awards reduced the categories of British women and British men in favor of gender-neutral prizes in 2022.

In addition, some artists have encountered a lack of representation of R&B in the Pop/R&B category.

Asked about the Male Artist of the Year category, Sam Smith, who is not binary and has called for the introduction of gender-neutral categories in 2021, said it was “shameful” to see only male nominees, adding in The Sunday Times. : “The case is moving forward, but it is obvious that this is not all. After seeing this list [of the best artists], we still have a long way to go.”

Stormzy’s next UK show will take place in August, where he will headline All Points East for the first time, hosting a day of music called “This Is What We Mean Day” based on his new album.
