Broadcast Music, Inc. songwriters deserve a big congratulations on their win of 69% of the 2015 BRIT Awards. Presented in London’s O2 Arena, February 25, 2015, the evening featured performances of “Bloodstream,” by British Male Solo Artist winner, Ed Sheeran, and chart-topping hit “Blank Space” by International Female Solo Artist winner, Taylor Swift. Sheeran took home two awards and soulful breakout star Sam Smith netted two as well, including the BRITs Global Success Award.

Nominees were chosen from the thousands of singles and hundreds of records released during a specific eligibility period. The winners were then voted on by a group of music industry employees, ranging from record label executives to publishers to managers and everything in between, including award winners from the previous year.

Congratulations to all of BMI’s winners!
