The BRIT Awards 2021 with Mastercard today announce details of BRITs Top Table with Mastercard, the BRITs 2021 official podcast series, which will launch Friday 23rd April exclusively on Amazon Music, the awards’ Official Digital Music Partner.
The eight-episode weekly series will present exciting and diverse voices in British music speaking about their own experiences and the music they love. The first episode will feature this year’s BRITs Rising Star winner Griff and broadcaster Jordan North, with more popular artists and music figureheads set to appear on later episodes.
The series will be hosted by comedian and broadcaster Sideman, and comedian and screenwriter Munya Chawawa. Already part of the BRITs family, Munya presented The BRITs red carpet coverage and the international livestream with Patricia Bright last year, and his plethora of nuanced personalities have helped him become a social media favourite, with his satirical and self-produced videos leading to an impressive roster of characters and uncountable viral moments.. Sideman (David Whitley) is a comedian, broadcaster, creator and cultural commentator from Birmingham, most well-known for his comedy sketches, and appearances across TV and radio. Each episode will feature two celebrity guests - one of which will be from the world of music - who will join in with the discussion around the BRITs, music, and popular culture.
Check out the trailer for the first episode HERE.
Ahead of the episode’s official launch, Amazon Music will be premiering an exclusive preview tomorrow night on the Amazon Music UK Twitch channel - tune in from 6pm BST.
Episodes of BRITs Top Table with Mastercard will be available every Friday in the Amazon Music app.
