The Brits have expanded the categories to include both rap and pop acts for the first time, and Adele has won all three. This makes her the first artist to win Artist of the Year without a gender-based award. After 16 years, the BRIT Awards have ditched the categories entirely. She will now compete in the “British Idol” contest to win a second consecutive Artist of the Year award.
Adele is the biggest winner of the night, taking home three awards at the BRIT Awards 2021 with Mastercard. She won three of the four categories she was nominated for, including artist of the year, songwriter of the year, and song of the year. The only category she didn’t win is the fan-voted “best pop/rock artist” category. But, she is far from the first female to do so.
Her album of the year and song of the year are the two biggest prizes of the night. The singer has already won the category for her second and third studio albums, 25 and 21. She has now won all three in the same year. In addition to her three album wins, Adele also won the song of the month award, which she shared with her son Angelo and ex-husband Simon Konecki.

The Brits are notoriously difficult to judge, and the awards can sometimes be controversial. The singer’s performance during the show was a tribute to her late husband and son, and she made some unexpected remarks on how he impacted her life. As a result, Adele missed her chance to match Robbie Williams’ record of 13 Brits. As a result, she was left feeling nervous, and the organizers are likely to keep that in mind.
The BRIT Awards have changed since the past 45 years. The best male artist category has been merged with the best female artist category, which was previously a woman-only category. The new format has eliminated gender-based categories. For the first time, women have dominated the longlists. However, the female winners outnumbered men by more than two to one. In fact, the female winners in all three categories were Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, and Holly Humberstone.
After losing the first three awards in the BRIT Awards, Adele was the big winner at the BRIT Awards 2022 with Master Card. The British singer won three awards, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year. The awards were hosted by Mo Gilligan, and the show spanned four nights and eight categories. The British public was invited to watch the BRIT Awards live to follow their favorite artists.
