All-star line up announced for The BRIT Awards 2020 with Mastercard

The BRIT Awards 2020 will be live on ITV Tuesday 18th February at The O2 Arena in London

Thursday 16th January - The BRIT Awards 2020 with Mastercard today announce a world-class music line up for what will be the 40th BRIT Awards show on Tuesday 18th February at The O2 Arena in London.

2020 BRIT nominees Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, Lewis Capaldi, Mabel and Stormzy will join the previously-announced BRITs Rising Star winner Celeste to perform on the show, which will broadcast exclusively on ITV for an unbeatable and must-see evening of music and entertainment.

Pop phenomenon Billie Eilish was the youngest ever female solo act to ever top the UK Album Chart last April with her debut WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? Having steadily garnered a fiercely loyal fanbase for her singles and videos including you should see me in a crown' and Bury A Friend', the 18 year old was one of the stand out performances at both Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds last summer, and will embark on a global arena tour including several UK dates in 2020. Billie is shortlisted for International Female Solo Artist.

Heralding his first new music since 2017, Harry Styles released his second album Fine Line to critical acclaim last month. Harrys sophomore release entered the charts at #1 in over 20 countries globally, including a second consecutive two-week top spot debut on the US Billboard 200. Fine Line, which features Top Ten singles Lights Up' and Adore You', has placed Harry firmly back on the map and he sees no sign of letting up with a huge world tour kicking off in April, including two sold-out nights at The O2 Arena in London. Harry is nominated for Best Male and Mastercard Album of the Year.

It has been a whirlwind year for the Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi. Having been shortlisted for the BRITs Critics' Choice award (now Rising Star) in 2019, his debut album spent six weeks at No 1 in the UK Album Chart, only to re-enter the UK Album Charts as the decades first No.1 album, it is now certified Double Platinum, and has recently been announced as the biggest selling UK album of the year. With five Top Ten singles, including the No. 1 selling breakthrough Someone You Loved', Capaldi's takeover sees no signs of slowing down for 2020, which sees him embark on an arena tour which sold out before the release of his debut album, making him one of the first artists to ever achieve such a feat. He is nominated for four BRITs this year: Best Male, Best New Artist, Song of the Year and Mastercard Album of the Year.

I wouldnt 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...Ill be there with bells on x

2019 saw Mabel take her place as one of the UKs biggest pop stars. Having spent weeks in the UK top three, global hit Don't Call Me Up' was the biggest selling single of the year by a UK female artist (with Mad Love' also in the annual Top 10), having surpassed 1 million sales and led to Mabel's debut album, High Expectations', charting at number three. At just 23 years-old, Mabel already has a gold-selling album/mixtape, four platinum-selling singles, a silver-selling album, two gold singles and two further silver singles to her name. She earns the most BRIT nominations for a female artist this year; Best Female, Best New Artist and Song of the Year.

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!

Following his trailblazing Glastonbury headline performance earlier this year, and his critically acclaimed No. 1 studio album Heavy is the Head - which features the No. 1 UK singles Own It' and Vossi Bop', acclaimed British rapper and musician Stormzy will be back on the BRITs stage in 2020, in the middle of the European leg of his H.I.T.H. world tour. 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. The Brighton-raised, British-Jamaican singer has garnered critical acclaim for a string of singles including Lately, Father's Son and lately, Stop This Flame and Strange. She was named the winner of the BBC Music Sound of 2020 earlier this year. 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. She will tour the UK in April, including a sold out Shepherds Bush Empire.

The BRIT Awards 2020 with Mastercard takes place Tuesday 18th February at The O2 Arena in London, broadcast exclusively on ITV and hosted by Jack Whitehall.
