The Brit awards are slowly approaching and the line-up is looking better than ever.
Geoff Taylor, chief executive of the BPI & BRIT Awards said: “We are always looking for ways for The BRITs to reach as wide an audience as possible given the global interest and huge international artists taking part in the show.”
He added: “It’s really exciting for us that so many people around the world will get the chance to celebrate the UK’s biggest night in music live as it happens.”
Dermot O’Leary and Emma Willis will host this year’s awards, replacing Michael Buble who pulled out of the awards after his three-year-old son’s tragic diagnosis of liver cancer.
Emma said of replacing Michael: “Every part of me sends so much love and all the best wishes in the world to Michael and his family at such a difficult time. I’m a huge fan of his and I would have relished watching him present the Brits. I know everyone involved wants to make the best show possible and I hope we do him proud.”
The Brits will also have a bundle of exciting performances from huge stars such as Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Robbie Williams, Bruno Mars and Emeli Sande.
British pop band Little Mix is set for success at this year’s awards with nominations for Best British Single, Best Video and Best Group. Other acts set for a win are Ellie Goulding for Best Female and Craig David for Best Male.
The ceremony will take place tonight at London’s O2 Arena. The programme will be aired with an exclusive broadcast, whilst the live red carpet and backstage will be hosted by Clara Amfo, Laura Jackson and Alice Levine.
The BRITs will also air live on YouTube at 7.30pm, which will be fronted by Casper Lee.
