Adele sweeps in the first Brit Awards without gender categories

Adele has been the great winner of the Brit Awards with three prizes, including the coveted "Best Album of the Year" at the ceremony held on Tuesday night in London, the first without distinction of categories by gender.

The British star has been awarded by its fourth studio album, 30, and has also taken the song of the year with its success Easy on Me and the artist award of the year.

Title 30 is a reference to Adele's age when he began to compose him three years ago, when his life was a torment, between his divorce and the sudden cessation of his career.

"I understand why they have changed the name of this prize, but I really like being a woman, a female artist, really," he said between applause in the crowded London Hall of the O2 Arena.

The Brit Awards, the trophies of British pop music, have eliminated gender categories to recognize artists "solely for their work and their music, instead of how they choose to identify or how others can perceive them," the organizers have explained.

The British Sam Smith, which is considered non-binary (not identified with the masculine genre or the feminine), did not compete in 2021 in the Brit Awards because no category corresponded to him.

"I can not believe that a piano ballad will win against so many great songs," he said Adele after receiving his prize to song from the year ahead of contestants such as A1 & J1, Central Cee, Glass Animals and KSI.

Meanwhile, British Pop Star Ed Sheeran has been done with the Award for Competence of the Year and the young American Olivia Rodrigo has crowned as an international song of the year with Good For You.
