This year’s Faroese Music Awards were presented at the Nordic House in Tórshavn on March 12th. A total 17 awards were presented and the evening’s big winner was Brimheim, whose given name is Helena Heinesen Rebensdorff. The 31-year old singer-songwriter won a total of three awards — Female Singer of the Year, Song of the Year, and Singer or Solo Artist of the Year.
For the first time since 2019, the show had a full in-house audience, which has not been possible for the past two years due to the Covid situation.
Brimheim, who resides in Malmö, Sweden, was unable to attend the event, so the hosts had to surprise her via videolink.
