She is the youngest person in history to win the music industry's highest honour, the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, and is the first female solo artist to win this prestigious award twice. 

Swift is also a Brit and Emmy award winner and Billboard's youngest-ever Woman of the Year and the only artist to have been awarded this honour twice.

With the release of her self-titled debut album, London-born, Kosovo-raised Dua Lipa has won over the hearts of fans and press alike.

How can I watch the Prime Day Concert on BT TV?

The Prime Video app works on the latest BT TV boxes which most customers have. If your TV box supports Amazon Prime Video, the app will be waiting for you in the Players & Apps menu.

Press the blue Home or Y button on your remote and scroll right until Players & Apps appears. Select this and select the Prime Video app.

Next, choose your Amazon Prime Video subscription. If you already have an Amazon Prime subscription, you can skip to Step 3 and start watching on the big screen with the extra features of BT TV.

If you don’t, you can still open the app to see what’s on, but you’ll need to subscribe to watch.

There are two options: the full Amazon Prime with free one-day delivery and Prime Music, or Amazon Prime Video on its own. In both cases, the first 30 days are free to new Amazon Prime customers, and you won’t be charged if you cancel before this trial period runs out.

You’ll pay for your Amazon Prime Video subscription through Amazon, not through your BT account.

Lastly, sign in or sign up for Amazon Prime Video. If you have an Amazon Prime or Prime Video account, select Sign in and start watching, and enter your email address and password.

If you don’t have an Amazon account, you can open the app to see what’s on by selecting No thanks, start browsing. If you like what you see, select Sign in in the top left corner, then select Register on the Amazon website.

This will give you a code to enter when you’ve created an account online at amazon.co.uk/mytv. Your BT TV box will pair with your new account so you don’t have to enter your email address and password.

Search for Prime Day Concert in Amazon to live stream or watch after the event.

Prime Video customers in the UK can stream the concert now.
