    Brit Awards 2017 Red Carpet 

    The celebs came out in style for this year’s Brit Awards, and once again metallics and suits proved to be a popular red carpet look (as we originally saw on the BAFTA awards 2017 red carpet). However, the highlight of the evening definitely goes to Jade from Little Mix, who broke ALL the fashion rules when she stepped out on the BRITs awards 2017 red carpet and totally nailed it.

    Who hosted the Brit Awards 2017?

    Michael Bublé was scheduled to host the awards, taking over from Ant and Dec who are usually at the helm of the Brits, announcing in a statement: ‘It’s a huge honour for me to host such a big night in music. Even though I didn’t grow up as a Brit I’ve always been well aware of The Brit Awards and their impact globally. As a fan of music this is the perfect gig. I’m very much looking forward to February and celebrating the success stories of a great year in music.’

    The Canadian singer, however, was forced to pull out due to his three year-old son’s cancer diagnosis, passing the Brits hosting baton over to Dermot O’Leary and Emma Willis, who will be standing in.

    ‘Every part of me sends so much love and all the best wishes in the world to Michael and his family at such a difficult time,’ Emma announced. ‘I’m a huge fan of his and I would have relished watching him present the Brits. I know everyone involved wants to make the best show possible and I hope we do him proud.’

    Who performed at the Brit Awards 2017?
