James Bay, Jess Glynne and The Weeknd join BRITs Line Up

With the nominations for this year’s awards being announced tonight, the star-studded line-up for the BRITs just got even bigger!

James Bay, Jess Glynne and The Weeknd have been confirmed as performers at the main ceremony on February 24th. They will join Adele, Justin Bieber, Coldplay and Little Mix, who have already been announced. With a stellar line-up of world-class performers, there is no doubt that this year’s Brit Awards will go down in music history!

James Bay won the Critics’ Choice Award at the BRITs in 2015. Following in the footsteps of fellow Critics’ Choice alumni Adele, Ellie Goulding, Jessie J and Sam Smith, James has gone on to have great success over the past year. His debut album Chaos and the Calm is certified platinum and reached number one in the UK.

Jess Glynne has gone from strength to strength over the past year. She became the second British female solo artist after Cheryl Fernandez-Versini to have five number one singles on the UK Singles Chart and her debut album I Cry When I Laugh has gone double platinum. Jess will also be performing at ‘The BRITs are Coming’ launch show tonight.

The Weeknd, a.k.a Abel Tesfaye, gained more recognition in the UK this year after his song “Earned It” was featured on the soundtrack for ’50 Shades of Grey’. He also released smash hits “I Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills” as well as having a number one hit with his album Beauty Behind The Madness.

We expect that James and Jess will walk away with a few nominations tonight, as well as The Weeknd who could be nominated in the International categories. The nominees will be announced on the Brit Awards twitter tonight from 6 pm, and a special ‘The BRITs are Coming’ show, presented by Laura Whitmore, will be broadcast on ITV1 at 10:40 pm.

We’re so excited to see who will get nominated this year! Who would you like to see get nominated for a Brit? Tweet us your thoughts @CelebMix or leave a comment below.
