Dua Lipa wins big at BRIT Awards


DUA Lipa was the big winner at the 2021 BRIT Awards, taking home two trophies for British Female Artist and Album of the Year.

The Levitating hitmaker took home two awards at the annual ceremony on Tuesday, as she was named the winner of both British Female Artist and Album of the Year for her 2020 hit, Future Nostalgia.

This year’s ceremony saw the winners get two gongs for each award, as bosses were keen for them to give their spare accolades to people who have made a difference to the world over the past year.

And after dedicating her first award to nurse Dame Elizabeth Anionwu, Dua chose to present her second win to the family of Folajimi Olubunmi-Adewole, who died last month when he jumped into the River Thames to try and save a woman who fell from London Bridge.

Elsewhere, Arlo Parks took home the trophy for British Breakthrou­gh Artist, while Little Mix made history as the first female group to win the British Group award.

Harry Styles was awarded

Best British Single for his track, Watermelon Sugar, and J Hus took home the British Male Solo Artist gong.

In the internatio­nal categories, Billie Eilish won Female Solo Artist, The Weeknd won Male Solo Artist, and HAIM were named Internatio­nal Group.
