Furthermore, they are all nominated for “Best Local Artist” in their respective regions.

There will also be several celebrities who will attend to deliver the awards, such as the model Winnie Harlow and the artists Rita Ora, Ryan Tedder and Olly Alexander, leader of the Years And Years band and outstanding ambassador of the LGTBQ + collective.
In fact, if this ceremony could go down in history for something, it is because of the clash between its message in favor of equality and the venue where they are held, after the regressive policies that the Hungarian Government has undertaken in recent times to the detriment of this part of the population.
