She follows the likes of Elton John, the Spice Girls and the late David Bowie in collecting the honour

Pink will be honoured at the 2019 BRIT Awards with the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award.

The award has not been presented at the BRITs since 2012, when Blur were the recipients. Other previous winners of the prize include Sir Elton John, the Spice Girls and the late David Bowie.

“I am so honoured to be recognised with the Outstanding Contribution To Music Award at the 2019 BRITs!” Pink said in a statement. “Since the beginning of my career the British fans have been some of the most fierce and loyal in the world. I am humbled to receive this honour and be in the company of an illustrious group of British icons!”

The artist, who will be the first international musician to receive the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award, will close the 2019 BRIT Awards with a special live performance.

“Pink is a trailblazer, a phenomenally talented singer and songwriter, and truly one of the greatest artists of our time,” BRITs Chairman Jason Iley said. “It is a real pleasure to honour her at this year’s BRIT Awards with the Outstanding Contribution To Music Award.

“With her remarkable career spanning nearly 20 years, Pink is one of the most successful artists in the world, consistently releasing multi-million-selling albums and selling out tours all over the globe. I am really excited to welcome her back to The BRITs and to recognise her prodigious success.”

WTF she's not British, I thought this particular award was for British only and thus haven't been given on a yearly basis.

She is the first international artist to be given this award, I was surprised to see she is getting it too as she is not British, but its great that she's getting the recognition she deserves this week. Now all she needs is to win this grammy heart.gif

Yeah I like her so not mad, it's just... very odd and gives an impression that they are starting to give this award to anyone who's been around 10+ years and is willing to come to the UK to sing a couple of songs.

Technically she is not the first international act to win this. U2 won in 2001.

This is absolutely phenomenal news! I can’t believe it’s only her second award at the Brits-and what an award to win! I’m loving all this great Pink news at the moment!

Forgot about U2. I don't really take much notice of the Brit awards tbh so when I saw a lot of articles saying she's the first international artist to win this award I assumed they were right laugh.gif

Would have preferred this award to go to someone like Kylie Minogue, but very happy for Pink

This is so deserved! She never gets the credit she fully deserves, she's never really had a flop era and is such a talent who always brings it. I hope this coincides with one of her big performances that show exactly she deserves this at the end of the show biggrin.gif

I’m fed up of justifying it to the posters in the chart forum. It doesn’t matter that she’s not British, it also doesn’t matter who else deserves it. Pink definitely does deserve it. The first 20 years of her career have been amazing.

Thats why I've not posted in that thread laugh.gif I've read some of it, but I've never been drawn into online debates, I just can't be arsed with it laugh.gif You're never going to please all the people all the time, so I don't care if people think she doesn't deserve it, or that she shouldn't get it because she's not British etc. In my opinion she more than deserves this award, I love all the attention she is getting for it and the fact that people are talking about her.

I do wonder what people's reaction would be if another female international artist had been awarded this though, would there still be all the hate? thinking.gif

Anyway, who cares. Pink is gonna kick ass at this years brits. I only wish I was able to go!

I just find it funny that people are always saying she deserves more recognition and then complaining when she does get some laugh.gif

The GH snuck back into the top 100 this week. I hope the Brits could send it straight up the upper reaches!
