Holly Humberstone has been crowned the winner of the Brit Awards' Rising Star prize.

The 21-year-old singer-songwriter beat fellow nominees Bree Runway and Lola Young to take home the award, which recognises pop music's most promising up-and-coming acts. She follows in the footsteps of previous winners Griff, Celeste, Sam Smith and Adele. Humberstone said:

"I remember watching the Brits with my parents each year and being totally awe struck by the artists coming together in what felt like another universe. Now to be named the Brits Rising Star and nominated alongside two other incredible women, with the songs that started within those four walls at home is so mad. It just doesn’t feel real. This year has been a wild ride and a year of firsts, and I am so grateful and thankful for everyone who has helped make this happen!"

Humberstone, who released 'The Walls Are Way Too Thin' EP in November, is also the first artist confirmed to perform at the 2022 Brit Awards, which will take place at The O2 in London on February 8. A full list of nominations will be shared on December 18.
