Rapper Kanye West has been announced as the final performer for tonight’s BRIT Awards.
The critically-acclaimed star has been added to the line-up ahead of tonight’s awards and is sure to provide one of the evening’s most talked-about performances.
Kanye joins Madonna, Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Paloma Faith, George Ezra, Royal Blood and Take That for the line-up of performers tonight. The awards will be streamed live online across the world, excluding the UK & Ireland, via YouTube.
Candice Morrissey, Head of YouTube Music Partnerships across Europe said, “Kanye West tops off an amazing set of performers at this year’s BRIT Awards with some of the biggest British and global stars taking the stage. We’re excited to partner with the BRITs again this year so anyone outside of the UK who can’t tune in on TV can watch their favourite artists live on the BRITs YouTube channel.”
Tonight’s performances will be exclusively available on Google Play Music free of charge shortly after the show. Google Play will be making a donation to War Child and The BRIT Trust for every song downloaded or streamed.
