Singer expected to join Beyonce, Mumford & Sons and Robbie Williams for the ceremony
Justin Timberlake is set to perform at the BRIT Awards.
The former ‘N Sync singer, who marked his music comeback with new single ‘Suit & Tie’ earlier this year, has been lined up to appear at the awards at the O2 Arena on February 20.
Beyonce is also appearing, with BRIT bosses presumably now hoping she, Timberlake and Jay-Z, who features on ‘Suit & Tie’, will appear on stage together. Timberlake, who will also perform at the Grammys on February 10, has written for Beyoncé’s new album. Timberlake last appeared at the awards in 2003 when he performed a Blondie hit ‘Rapture’ as a duet with Kylie Minogue.
Meanwhile, Muse announced they will be performing their track ‘Supremacy’ on the night with a full orchestra and choir. They will have to pack up quickly, however, as they’re also headlining Warchild’s annual post-awards concert at Shepherd’s Bush Empire. The event in past years has seen the likes of Kasabian, Blur‘s Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon and Mark Ronson perform in the intimate venue, while one year headliners Coldplay were joined on stage by Gary Barlow, Bono and The Killers for a rendition of Take That‘s ‘Back For Good’.
