She was rumored to perform at last year’s BRIT Awards, but this year it’s confirmed: Beyonce will take the stage at the 2014 BRIT Awards tonight (February 19). The host of the show, James Corden, revealed the news during an interview with BBC Radio 2. “There’s this weird thing with this year’s Brits where I’ve been — more than any other year — told things I can’t say,” Corden said. “But I figure it’s the day,” he added before apparently turning to his handlers to make sure he could make the announcement, and continued, “I must be able to tell you? Beyonce. Beyonce is performing tonight.”
“She’s performing a track she has never ever performed live before. Ever.”Well, that’s exciting! And it rules out “Drunk In Love,” which is fine because with all the remixes we’ve pretty much had our fill of that song for a while.
Katy Perry, Pharrell, Bruno Mars, Ellie Goulding, Bastille and Rudimental are also set to perform at the ceremony, and Lorde will be collaborating with Disclosure for a performance. See the full list of nominees here.
