The BRIT Awards have today revealed details of next year’s ceremony.

For the first time, the trophy statue will be designed by Damien Hirst, following on from Sir Peter Blake’s design in 2012, and Vivienne Westwood’s in 2011.

The event will be held on Wednesday 20 February 2013 at London’s O2 Arena, with James Corden hosting the night for the third year running.

It’s also been announced that there’ll be a special Nominations Launch evening, set to take place at The Savoy on 10 January and hosted by Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw.
