The group 1975, the voice of the 'millenials', is victorious at the Brit Awards | Culture

The 1975 quartet has confirmed its status as a fashionable sound in the United Kingdom when it was made last night with two of the main prizes of British music, in the categories of best band and best album. The young singer-songwriter George Ezra and the powerful voice of Jorja Smith have deserved separate Brit Awards as the most outstanding male and female performers of the last years

A Brief Inquiry into Online Relashionships is the title of the studio album that reinforces the condition of musical phenomenon of 1975, already winner of the Brit to the best band two years ago. The group led by the charismatic Matty Healy has been described by critics as the voice of the millenials, which addresses both Internet addiction and refugee drama in their songs.

Thanks to a very personal style that would marry pop folk, George Ezra has been at 25 years the recipient of the award for best male soloist with which he sealed his return to the front line. Four years younger, the singer Jorja Smith picked up the same prize in the women's section, which highlights the rising name of this artist who travels through soul, R & B and hip hop, incorporating electronic arrangements.

The Brit gala, held at the O2 concert venue in London and broadcast on British television, has had the actor and singer Hugh Jackman one of its most outstanding masters of ceremonies. The Australian interpreter has opened the function interpreting one of the themes of the musical film The Great Showman, of which he was the main protagonist. Missing the appointment were the two awarded as best international artists, Ariana Grande and Drake, who sent tapes recorded in advance.

One of the most emotional moments of the gala took place when Calvin Harris picked up one of his two Brits won in the current edition, his first success in these awards after being nominated 16 times. Harris has been recognized as producer of the year and for the single One Kiss, the most sold over eight weeks (2018) and launched in collaboration with Dua Lipa. The latter was the only award that the London singer of Kosovar origin has taken, nominated in four categories as Anne-Marie, who ended up leaving empty-handed.

The members of Little Mix, who were frustrated with their expectations of being crowned as the best group, have won the consolation prize for the best video of the year (Woman Like Me).
