Icelandic legend Björk was awarded ‘Best International Female Solo Artist’ at the 2016 edition of the BRIT Awards!
Björk was honoured with the award for ‘Best International Female Solo Artist’ at the ceremony which took place on the 24th February in London, following the huge success of her 2015 album Vulnicura. The award marks her fifth(!) BRIT award, having won the same title in 1994, 1996 and 1998, as well as being granted the title of ‘Best International Newcomer’ award in 1994. Björk has been nominated no less than four times since 2002, but now she finally got to bring home the award again.
Unfortunately Björk wasn’t present at the O2 arena for the award ceremony, but through a video call she stated her honour and happiness at receiving the title. Other artists competing for the award included Lana Del Rey, Courtney Barnett, Meghan Trainor and Ariana Grande, so competition was fierce.
The BRIT awards took place for the 27th time at the O2 arena in London. The award show was initiated by the British Phonographic Industry in 1982 and highlights British and international artists for extraordinary achievements in pop music.
