James Cordon has seemingly confirmed that Beyonce is to play at this evening’s BRIT Awards ceremony.

The announcement, made by Cordon this morning on BBC Radio 2, means Beyonce will join the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Pharrell Williams, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry, amongst others, onstage for the ceremony at London’s O2 Arena.

Revealing the surprise, Cordon told show host Zoe Ball, “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….But I figure it’s the day… I must be able to tell you? Beyoncé. Beyoncé is performing tonight. She’s performing a track she has never ever performed live before. Ever.”
