The BRITs has just confirmed that the first three artists to perform at the nominations show are Craig David, Olly Murs, and Christine and the Queens, with further announcements due shortly.

Craig David has made the ultimate comeback this year, with his latest album Following My Intuition going straight to top of the charts, marking his first number one album in 16 years. He also had the pleasure of releasing this year’s Children In Need single, ‘All We Needed’. Speaking of The BRITs nominations show, Craig said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be involved with The BRITs this year which always showcases the best of British and International music and highlights how important our industry is on a global scale.”

Olly Murs is another British male artist who’s had a year to remember. His latest album 24 HRS is currently number one, his fourth consecutive chart topper. Speaking of the nominations show, he said: “I’m excited to announce I’ll be playing at the BRITs 2017 nominations launch. Make sure you tune in to ITV on Saturday January 14th!  I always love playing live and this will be a great warm up for my 24HRS tour next year.”

Representing the international talent on the evening will be Christine and the Queens. The French artist, otherwise known as Héloïse Letissier, has been one of the most talked about artists of the year, making waves across the globe.

Speaking about the nominations launch show, BRITs Chairman Jason Iley said:
“Olly and Craig are two of the biggest British male artists out there with long and successful careers having both enjoyed Number One albums this year.  Christine and the Queens are one of the most exciting and innovative acts in the world right now.  I’m delighted that they are all taking part in this new BRITNominations Launch event on the 14th January. To add to this already stellar line-up we are also thrilled to have Emma Willis as our host.  She’s one of the most talented presenters on TV and adds another level to what promises to be one of the best BRITs launches in recent years.”
