The BRIT Awards 2024 with Mastercard have announced that Clara Amfo, Maya Jama and Roman Kemp are coming together to host this year's ceremony, which takes place Saturday 2nd March at The O2 arena, London, broadcast exclusively on ITV1, STV, ITVX and STV Player.

The three acclaimed and versatile broadcasters have each been at the helm of some of the UK’s best-loved and biggest TV and Radio shows, have interviewed the biggest names in music and entertainment, as well as being at the fore of British popular culture. Together, they hosted The BRITs’ Red Carpet show for ITV2 last year - and will now take centre stage on the main BRITs show this March to lead viewers watching from home and those in the arena through the awards presentations and live performances.

Clara said: "Hosting The BRITs is a bucket list job, I'm so very honoured and excited for this year’s show. Throughout my career, I've been so lucky to witness the growth of this year's nominees and performers and I know it’s gonna be another special one. I can't wait to hit the stage with Maya and Roman to celebrate these amazing artists at The O2!"

Maya said: "I'm really excited to be hosting The BRIT Awards alongside Clara and Roman. I've worked alongside the incredible team at the BRITs for years now and it’s something I always watched, and wanted to be a part of, growing up - so it’s amazing to be on the stage this year hosting it! It's always one of the best nights of the year for me, and a real celebration of British music, culture, and talent."

Roman said: "This is a real pinch me moment! Hosting the BRIT Awards - what an honour. I remember watching the BRITs on TV when I was growing up so to be asked to host this year’s awards, is a dream come true. It's going to be a privilege to share the stage with so many talented artists and to celebrate the incredible achievements of all the nominees and winners this year. See you there."

Damian Christian, Managing Director and President of Promotions at Atlantic Records (part of Warner Music UK) and Chair of the BRIT Committee for 2024 said: "I'm delighted that three of the country's most renowned and talented entertainment personalities will be taking on the hosting role this year. I've admired Maya's work for years and have worked closely with Clara and Roman throughout their careers. All three are real music people and will bring their own unique humour, charm and vision to what is sure to be a great night."

Katie Rawcliffe, ITV Head of Entertainment Commissioning added: "Clara, Maya and Roman are an exceptional trio and it is fantastic to have them all at the helm for this year’s BRIT Awards. The show remains hugely popular, particularly amongst our 16-34 audience, and we look forward to another epic celebration of music."

Nominations for the 2024 BRIT Awards were announced last week, with RAYE breaking the record for the most BRIT nominations (seven) received by any artist in a single year. The BRITs have also confirmed that RAYE and 3x nominated Dua Lipa will perform at The BRITs. Other nominees include: Arlo Parks, Blur, Calvin Harris, Central Cee, Dave, Fred again.., Jessie Ware, J Hus, Little Simz, Olivia Dean, Mahalia, PinkPantheress, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo, The Rolling Stones, SZA, Taylor Swift, Young Fathers.
