Dork does the BRIT Awards 2020 - all you need to know

Superstar performances. Drinks flowing. Somebody no doubt making an absolute fool of themselves. Not just an average day in Dork HQ - but also a sample menu of what to expect from the BRIT Awards, celebrating its 40th birthday with a bang. Held at London’s O2 Arena, it’s time to crack out our suavest outfits to celebrate the past twelve months.

So, who’s nominated? WELL, try Dork faves Billie Eilish, Foals, Bastille, Sam Fender, Charli XCX, Harry Styles, Lizzo, Mabel, Lewis Capaldi, Stormzy and more - all eagerly awaiting to hear if their name will be revealed across one of the eight categories. We can feel the tension already.

What else? There are also performances from Billie Eilish (debuting that cracking James Bond theme), Lewis Capaldi, Stormzy, Harry Styles, Lizzo, Mabel, Celeste, Dave and - erm - Rod Stewart. Try some ridiculous moments on the red carpet. Try some daytime TV presenters bopping their heads to tracks they have clearly never heard before. There’s a lot going on, alright?

As you are no doubt aware, Dearest Reader, we like to get under the skin of these award bashes. What type of crisps are knocking about backstage? Can you get pizzas delivered to the press room? Which lager does Noel Gallagher drink? Only Dork can get those all-important details.

So yes, 'we' will be live from the BRIT Awards with the comprehensive coverage you won’t find anywhere else. It’s amazing we’re still allowed in. 

Keep your eyes glued to Dork on socials - that's @readdork on Twitter and Instagram - for more, and we'll update you to the winners right here on readdork.com as they come in. You won’t regret it. 

In the meantime, get a feel of who’s going to be celebrating and who we’re going to have to console with aftershow cocktails with the full shortlist below. Yes, we know. So many men. Do better, BRIT Awards.
