James Corden has claimed that the Brit Awards will "benefit from a fresh approach" when he moves on from hosting the show after this month's ceremony.

Corden will present next week's awards for the fourth time, more than anybody else in Brit Awards history. He has already confirmed that he will not return in 2015, and a replacement is yet to be announced. Speaking about his decision to step away from the role as host, the film and TV actor has said that the show will benefit from the introduction of a fresh face.

During an appearance on Jonathan Ross's ITV chat show ahead of next Wednesday (February 19) ceremony, Corden said: "I feel like as a show it should always be young and fresh. As an event it doesn't benefit from someone doing it the same every year. There's lots of awards shows that do, but this isn't one."

Corden goes on to say that the opportunity to enter the record books motivated his return this year. "I thought last year was going to be my last, but then someone said, 'Well if you do it next year you'll have done it more than anyone else'. I was like, 'Alright'. I just thought, if I could tell my 12-year-old self that one day I would host this big show more than anybody else, his head would explode. I just feel like a fan in there."

Organisers of the 2014 Brit Awards recently confirmed that the event will be live-streamed on YouTube for the first time this year. The ceremony, which will take place on London's O2 Arena on February 19, will be broadcast live on ITV and on the Awards' YouTube channel.

Lorde and Disclosure will also perform live. They will join Pharrell, Arctic Monkeys, Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding, Bruno Mars, Bastille and Rudimental.

Arctic Monkeys are nominated for Best British Group and Best Album. David Bowie and James Blake will compete with Jake Bugg for British Male Solo Artist. Haim have been nominated for the International Group award and are up against Kings Of Leon, Daft Punk and Arcade Fire in the category. Disclosure and Bastille have received the most nominations, with four apiece. Click here for a full list of nominations.
