The behind-the-scenes livestream broadcast from the awards ceremony at Grosvenor House in London will be available to watch on the Amazon Music channel on Twitch from 16:00 BST on Thursday 23rd May.

Please note: the Ivor Novello Award ceremony will not be broadcast.

Since the first Ivor Novello Awards were presented in 1956, they have been recognised as the pinnacle of creative musical achievement; a win holds a special place in a songwriter’s heart, given The Ivors Academy judging panel consists of acclaimed songwriters and composers. Past winners include Adele, Stormzy, Annie Lennox, Amy Winehouse, Joan Armatrading, Sir Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

The Ivors Academy has already revealed that Bruce Springsteen will receive its highest honour, as he becomes the latest Fellow of The Ivors Academy. The iconic US musician will be inducted into Fellowship at The Ivors with Amazon Music on 23rd May, becoming the first ever international songwriter to become a Fellow in The Ivors Academy’s 80-year history.

One of the most influential and important songwriters of all time, Bruce Springsteen’s induction into the Fellowship recognises his outstanding contribution to the craft of songwriting and acknowledges his impact on the UK’s cultural landscape. He will become the 27th Fellow of the Academy, joining a roster of songwriting greats including Sir Paul McCartney, Kate Bush, Joan Armatrading and Sting.

Laura Lukanz, Head of Music Industry, UK, Australia & New Zealand at Amazon Music said: “We are excited to celebrate the exceptional creativity and talent of the songwriters and composers who have shared their music over the past year. I hope that you can join us for these prestigious awards as we bring you performances and interviews live from the red carpet and behind the scenes on 23rd May.”

Last year, as a part of a multi-year global deal, Amazon Music was announced as the new title sponsor of The Ivors in a collaboration that scaled the awards’ recognition and celebration of songwriters globally. This year, Amazon Music will continue to put songwriters behind the music in front of the mic as they curate and amplify exclusive content and livestream from the awards ceremony on the global Amazon Music channel on Twitch.

On Thursday 23rd May 2024, The Ivors with Amazon Music will recognise and celebrate outstanding songwriters and composers across 14 categories – including Songwriter of the Year with Amazon Music, Outstanding Song Collection with PRS for Music, Visionary Award with Amazon Music, Special International Award, and Outstanding Contribution to British Music. The 2024 winners will be revealed at The Ivors with Amazon Music at Grosvenor House in London.
