Harry Styles is sure to be a top nominee for both the Brits and the Grammys. His Harry’s house has topped the Official UK Albums Chart for six consecutive weeks, longer than any other album in 2023. His smash “As It Was” topped the Official UK Singles Chart for 10 consecutive weeks, also the record for 2022.

As such, Styles is a leading contender for both British Album of the Year and Best British Single. Adele won both awards last year with his album 30 and the single “Easy on Me”. If Styles wins both awards this year, he will become the first male solo artist to double the top awards in the same year. This feat has previously been accomplished by three groups (Fairground Attraction, 1989; Veil, 1995; and Coldplay2006) and a female solo artist (Adele, who has done it twice, in 2016 and 2022).

Styles won UK Single of the Year two years ago for his sensual smash “Watermelon Sugar”. If he wins again in February, he will become the first artist to win twice in this marquee category in three years Take it won back-to-back awards in 2007 and 2008 with “Patience” and “Shine” respectively.

Styles first won UK Single of the Year in 2012 as a member of A direction for their exuberant smash “What Makes You Beautiful.”

Styles won his first solo Brit award, British Video of the Year, for “Sign of the Times” in 2018.

The Brit Awards 2023 with Mastercard (the show’s official name) announced their show date on Monday (September 5). They also announced that Damian Christian, managing director and president of promotions at Atlantic Records (part of Warner Music UK) will take over as chairman of the Brit Committee for 2023.

Commenting on the new date, Christian said in a statement: “The Brits is the biggest night of the year for the British music industry and we want as many eyes on it as possible as we showcase the best and most diverse British talent. Moving the show on a Saturday will breathe new life into the iconic ceremony while introducing a new and more engaged audience.”

Comedian Mo Gilligan hosted the 2022 Brit Awards, which were held in February. 8 on O2. Adele won the most awards (three).

Last year the Brit Awards underwent a major overhaul. The BPI announced in November 2021 that Britons would no longer use gendered categories; that it would introduce two marquee awards (artist of the year and songwriter of the year); and that it would revive four genre-specific categories – Best Alternative/Rock Act, Best Dance Act, Best Hip-Hop/Rap/Grime Act and Best Pop/R&B Act.

The nominations were announced in December. 18, 2021. Adele, Dave, Little Simz and Ed Sheeran tied for most nodes (four).

LF System and Dave are also leading contenders for Best British Single at the upcoming awards. LF System, a British production duo from Scotland, topped the Official UK Singles Chart for eight weeks with “Afraid to Feel”. Dave, an English rapper, singer and actor, topped this chart for four weeks with “Starlight”.

Kate Bush‘Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God), which topped the Official UK Singles Chart for three weeks earlier this summer, will probably not be eligible for Best UK Single because it wasn’t released until 1985. In fact, it was nominated for UK Single of the Year single in 1986 but lost to Tears of fear‘ global hit “Everybody wants to rule the world.” Bush has won a Brit Award – best British woman in 1987.
