Billie Eilish, Celeste, Harry Styles, and More to Perform at the 2020 BRIT Awards
A world-class music line up for the 40th BRIT Awards will return on Tuesday (Feb. 18) at The O2 Arena in London. This year nominees including Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, Lewis Capaldi, Mabel and Stormzy will join the previously-announced BRITs Rising Star winner, Celeste to perform on the show.
Pop phenomenon Billie Eilish was the youngest ever female solo act to ever top the UK Album Chart last April with her debut album “WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?”. She is shortlisted for International Female Solo Artist at the 2020 BRIT Awards.
Heralding Harry Styles first new music since 2017, he released his second album ‘Fine Line’ to critical acclaim last month. The album, which features “Lights Up” and “Adore You”, has placed Harry firmly back on the map. Harry is nominated for Best Male and Mastercard Album of the Year.
The Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi is nominated for four BRITs this year: Best Male, Best New Artist, Song of the Year and Mastercard Album of the Year. Lewis says, “I wouldn’t miss performing at The BRITs, because usually when people perform, their album and single sales go way up the chart, so looking forward to that especially…I’ll be there with bells on x.”
Global hit singer “Don’t Call Me Up”, Mabel earns the most BRIT nominations for a female artist this year: Best Female, Best New Artist and Song of the Year. She says, “So excited to perform at this year’s BRIT Awards. So many legendary people have performed at The BRITs, so it really is an honour and a dream come true!”
British rapper and musician Stormzy will be back on the BRITs stage in 2020. His electrifying performance at The BRITs 2018 in support of the BRIT award winning debut album ’Gang Signs & Prayer’ – the year he also picked up Best British Male – was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the BRITs that year. Stormzy is nominated for three BRIT awards: Best Male, Song of the Year and Mastercard Album of the Year.
As already announced, Celeste is the winner of the 2020 BRITs Rising Star award, and in a BRITs ‘first’, will perform on the main show. Known for her incandescent voice and breathtaking live performance, she sold out all her London shows last year – including 3 dates at Omeara – and supported the likes of Michael Kiwanuka, Janelle Monae and Neneh Cherry, as well as duetting with Paul Weller.
