Here are the full winners from this year's BRIT Awards.
It’s no surprise, given her history, that Adele with her first album in six years, 30, took home all three main prizes at the 42nd Brit Awards, but it’s still a jaw-dropping achievement. With Mastercard Album of the Year, Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for Easy on Me, Adele’s collection of BRITs is now at twelve in total.

“I’d like to dedicate this award to my son”, she said in her tearful Album of the Year acceptance speech. “And to Simon, his dad; this album was all of our journey, not just mine. I’m very proud of myself for sticking to my guns and putting out an album that was about something so personal to me, because not many people do stuff like that anymore.”

Where does Billie place among the Bond theme greats?
With the recent premiere of the landmark 25th James Bond movie No Time To Die (and the last featuring the inimitable Daniel Craig) and the accompanying title theme by Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas, we thought we’d explore where exactly our youngest ever Bond theme performer ranks on the complete list of main title themes from the spy thrillers.

She’s set to become the youngest to ever headline Glastonbury.
She’s not even out of her teens yet and Billie Eilish has already achieved more than most musicians achieve in a lifetime. She became the youngest artist to ever win Grammy awards in all four general categories, and now she’s set to become the youngest to ever headline Britain’s iconic Glastonbury Festival.

The news came via Instagram when the 19-year-old star dropped a shot of herself wearing a Glastonbury hoodie with the caption “2022” on her stories. Festival organiser shared the image on her own account.

Have a spookily musical Halloween this year.
The early invitations are out and so it's time to start planning your Halloween costume. There is always too much choice for music fans thanks to iconic spooky looks from Michael Jackson in his Thriller outfit to Robert Smith being... well... Robert Smith. For a more up-to-date look though, we've got you covered.
Billie Eilish at the Met Gala
Ok, so it’s a bit extravagant, but what’s a Halloween party without someone wearing a completely over the top princess dress? This year, it’s your turn to take the limelight as Met Gala Billie Eilish- but hopefully without the hefty Oscar de la Renta price tag.

Billie, Lil Nas X and Rihanna stole the show at the fashion event.
It’s the fashion event of the year and, as usual, all the charting pop icons were in attendance at the 2021 Met Gala. This year’s theme was American Independence and, as the saying goes, it was go big or go home - exactly the sentiment these celebs took with them to Metropolitan Museum of Art this week.
I would have hated to be at the Met Gala with Billie this year. Fellow attendees must have felt like the Ugly Sisters to her Cinderella. Clothed in peach tulle with a vintage wavy blonde bob, black eyeliner and a dusky red lip, she did designer Oscar de la Renta proud.

It’s one of the most highly anticipated album releases of the year, which puts an awful lot of pressure on a woman who’s faced more than enough criticism and scrutiny over the past two years.
But there was no reason to doubt Billie Eilish, as it turns out, because far from being the victim of the dreaded “second album syndrome”, Happier Than Ever has turned out to be a triumph that is neither better nor worse than her debut When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, but simply a brave new direction.

June didn't deliver 'Hancock's (finest) Half Hour' or Scotland's best 90 minutes but at least it had it's memorable musical moments
June saw summer start and Matt Hancock's reign as Health Secretary finish after he was caught breaking CoVID19 rules by kissing his aide at work. Wimbledon began for the first time in two years and England's inability to beat Germany in a knockout football tournamnent ended after a 55 year wait with a 2-0 win at Wembley. Ed Sheeran arrived with some new, questionable Bad Habits, and Winston Marshall quit Mumford & Sons after 14 years because he was being hounded by the "cancel culture mob" for a personal tweet about right-wing journalist Andy Ngo. Tick Tock artist Mabel returned with her first new single of the year, Jorja Smith went Home, KSI had a Holiday and Lorde made a welcome return with Solar Power. However, our top 5 releases of the month were even better than that - let's take a look.

Expect more than just spectacular fireworks as July is set to make you 'Happier Than Ever' with the new music it has to offer
With CoVID restrictions beginning to ease and the prospect of live festival music no longer a distant dream there does seem to be a reserved air of optimism beginning to permeate into everyday life. As both Wimbledon and the British Grand Prix expect to host a capacity crowd, and the EURO 2020 final at Wembley is set to host 60,000 football fans, surely it can't be long before the green light is given to music venues, festivals and other events to open their doors and welcome back guests. Many concerts are still being cancelled due to the uncertainty, the latest big one being Dua Lipa who has rescheduled to 2022, however July should bring with it more sunshine, more good news and hopefully the first of a wave of gigs, shows and festivals that are all hoping that they can go ahead. Coupled with the likelihood of live music, Independence Day celebrations, Bastille Day and World Emoji Day!! there are also some great new releases to look forward to. Here's our top five.
Billie Eilish - Happier Than Ever.
Fans went crazy for Billie Eilish pre-sale tickets.
If you stan Billie Eilish and you thought you might take off with the adrenaline rush of trying to book tickets to her 2022 Happier Than Ever tour in the pre-sale, you're certainly not the only one if the social media frenzy is anything to go by.

The 2021 BRIT's was a spectacular event that delivered some great performances and saw some very worthy winners.
With a great deal of excitement, a lot of relief and some anxiousness, the biggest night on the UK's musical calendar went ahead as the BRIT's 2021 celebrated the stars and artists that have made the biggest impact in music over the last year. As part of the Government's pilot scheme to get events back up and running safely the O2 once again hosted the BRIT's, not in front of the usual 20,000 fans and invited guests, but in front of an audience made up of 2,500 care workers and 1,500 music industry related others, with each of them having had to provide a negative CoVID test.

Jack Whitehall was back again, hosting the first major event at the O2 since March 2020. After a brief Line Of Fire themed intro, Foreplay, aka Coldplay, were first up performing their brand new track, Higher Power, on a floating barge in the Thames opposite the arena. With holograms and pyrotechnics galore Chris and his band lit up the night sky to get the show off to a suitably stellar start.
