LIVE TOMORROW: Tune into the BRIT Awards 2019, featuring George Ezra, Dua Lipa and Jorja Smith on YouTube

It’s that time of year again. With awards season in full swing, one of the most anticipated musical celebrations of the year has arrived: The BRITs. Known for its memorable performances such as Stormzy’s “Blinded By Your Grace Pt 2” in the rain and Liam Gallagher’s moving tribute to Manchester—plus top pop culture moments (Ginger Spice’s iconic Union Jack dress, anyone?)—the BRIT Awards are a celebration of UK musical talent on a global stage. And this year for the first time, YouTube Music is the Official Music App of the 2019 Awards and will provide one-of-a-kind access to the show for fans around the world.

For the sixth consecutive year, for those outside the UK, YouTube is letting you in on the action with a livestream of the show from the O2 Arena in London. Just tune in at youtube.com/BRITs on your favorite screen—whether that’s your mobile, tablet or TV—tomorrow, February 20 at 11:30 a.m. PT / 2:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. GMT. Following the show, no matter your location, you can watch and rewatch the performances on YouTube Music.

Adding to tomorrow’s excitement, YouTube star and global sensation, Todrick Hall, who has 2.9 million subscribers, will present the YouTube Livestream, giving people outside the UK incredible behind-the-scenes access from the show, while providing a front row seat to the drama, gossip, and artist interactions. Vick Hope will join Hall as co-host; and once the show is over, they will continue broadcasting an everyone’s-invited Official After Party on YouTube, recapping the biggest moments from the night.

This year, nominated stars like George Ezra, Dua Lipa, The 1975, Little Mix and Jorja Smith—who either got their start on YouTube, launched albums on the platform, or have used it to grow their fanbases to a global level—are set to perform. Be sure to tune in to see their show-stopping, on-stage renditions of their beloved hits.

For the second year running, comedian Jack Whitehall will be bringing his brilliant jokes and outrageous capers as the event’s host to make the night one you’ll never forget. After all, what could be better than a mix of top-rated musical talent and hilarious antics to make for an unforgettable night?

And as a special treat for Londoners who didn’t score tickets to the O2: select winners from the night will be projected gloriously onto County Hall and Old Billingsgate to make for a magical, one-of-a-kind YouTube Music moment atop the Thames. There will also be a chance to see your favorite nominees and winners celebrated on billboards throughout the country, and YouTube adverts showcasing the official BRITs content on the YouTube Music App.

Geoff Taylor, Chief Executive of BPI & BRIT Awards said, “The BRIT Awards is the most spectacular night in music, showcasing the exceptional talent of a diverse range of British artists at home and around the world. We have seen tremendous growth in the digital and social reach of the BRITs, and partnering with YouTube once again for our live stream of the show enables us to introduce British music to a global audience that is growing all the time.”

And in case you missed it, after the show you’ll find performances from the artists on a special, exclusive YouTube Music BRITs playlist. But for those who want to enjoy the BRIT Awards LIVE—don’t forget to tune in at youtube.com/BRITs on February 20 at 11:30 a.m. PT / 2:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. GMT.

That’s a wrap! See you in Atlanta in 2019

It was a nail biting matchup with the underdogs prevailing in a game that came down to the last second.

Hundreds of thousands of people made their way to the Twin Cities this past Sunday to catch the action live. But for the millions of you that weren’t there in person, you haven’t missed the chance to watch and rewatch the Big Game’s always-entertaining slate of ads on YouTube.

On YouTube, fans engage with the Big Game well before the kickoff and long after the last touchdown. We saw over a 16 percent increase in viewership of ads on YouTube this year, with viewership on Living Room devices increasing by 52 percent.1 In fact, one in every eight ads on YouTube watched on Sunday were watched on Living Room devices.2

For the 11th year, fans turned to YouTube AdBlitz to watch, cheer, and share their favorite ads. This year, we expanded AdBlitz to include even more content beyond ads for fans to enjoy — like top football content, custom creator videos from ThreadBanger, Wong Fu Productions, devinsupertramp, and more.

The cheers and in-hub views of the ads in AdBlitz have now been counted, and … drumroll … it’s time to reveal the three ads that came out on top. The battle for these top spots was fierce this year with 80+ brands participating in AdBlitz, and more fans visiting the site than ever. In fact, in just two days, AdBlitz site traffic this year exceeded total AdBlitz traffic during the entire Big Game week last year.

The AdBlitz 2018 fan favorites are: Amazon Alexa, Bud Light, and Groupon!

Amazon’s Big Game ad takes the top spot. In this hilarious ad, Alexa loses her voice and counts on a star-studded team including Cardi B and Gordon Ramsay to come to her rescue.

Bud Light’s “The Bud Knight” came in second among AdBlitz fans, bringing their well-known Dilly Dilly creative to the Big Game with the introduction of the “Bud Knight.”

In third, Groupon and Tiffany Haddish join forces to let you know that every time you use Groupon in your neighborhood, you’re supporting local businesses.

The Big Game may be over, but you can visit YouTube AdBlitz at any time to watch and rewatch all the top videos from this year’s event. After you’ve watched the ads, test your knowledge of the Big Game’s most popular spots and YouTube trends with Deja:View trivia. Play now!
