Calvin Harris has been announced as the latest big-name performer for the 2019 BRIT Awards, bringing Sam Smith, Dua Lipa and Rag’n’Bone Man in tow too.
Nominated for British Single and British Video of the Year for his ‘One Kiss’ collaboration with Dua Lipa, the ceremony will surprisingly mark Harris’ debut appearance on the BRIT Awards stage. Jason Iley, BRITs Chairman and Chairman and CEO of Sony Music UK & Ireland said: “I’m delighted that Calvin will be performing at The BRITs for the first time ever; he is a global superstar who has created some of the biggest hits with the biggest artists in the world. The stats say it all! He will be joined by a trio of incredible British talent – Dua Lipa, Sam Smith and Rag‘n’Bone Man – each of whom are individually amazing performers and have been lighting up the UK charts. This will undoubtedly be one of the standout moments of the night.”
Harris and co will join previously-announced Little Mix, George Ezra and The 1975 when the BRIT Awards returns on 20th February. The show will be broadcast live on ITV and simulcast on YouTube.
