The GRM Daily Rated Awards Are Back

By September 4, 2020Music

"Britain’s premier award ceremony for black music".

GRM Daily’s Rated Awards are back. Returning this year for the 5th year, GRM Daily’s Rated Awards will once again come together to celebrate the best of the UK music scene. Guaranteed to provide the smoothest of selections in nominations and iconic performances, it serves as the year’s must-see evening of music and entertainment.

Hosted by dynamic duo Mo Gilligan and Julie Adenuga, the award show will exclusively be broadcasted on YouTube and over on RatedAwards.com.

The awards of the night span over ten categories, from Breakthrough and Video of the year to Album and Personality of the year. Leading the way with four nominations is Manchester Mogul Aitch, whilst also facing strong competition from fellow industry artists Stormzy, AJ Tracey, Headie One, Kano, and more.
