The hugely-anticipated 2020 Brit Awards are finally here and will once again, bring us the best of British pop music.

As well as serving up drama and plenty of booz and after party scenes, the Brits are also renowned for their world-class performances.

Indeed, this year's line-up is nothing short of spectacular, including some of the hottest artists in the industry.

Here's who's performing at this year's event...

Billie Eilish

It's been a busy start to the year for Bille Eilish. Just a week after performing at the Oscars, and fresh off the release of her new track for the Bond film No Time to Die, she will be taking to the stage at the Brit Awards to give her debut performance of the track with Hans Zimmer.

Eilish was the youngest ever female solo artist to top the UK Album Chart last year with her debut album When We Fall Asleep, Where do We Go, which saw her take home five Grammy Awards last month.

Lewis Capaldi

Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi is nominated for four Brits this year: Best Male Solo Artist, Best New Artist, Song of the Year and Mastercard Album of the Year.

Capaldi joked that he "wouldn't miss" performing at the Brits, "because usually when people perform, their album and single sales go way up the chart.... I'll be there with bells on."

Harry Styles


Two years after his solo debut in 2017, which saw him win the Video of the Year Brit award for Sign of the Times, Harry Styles returned last year with his sophomore album Fine Line.

Styles will take the stage at tonight's Brits, at which he is nominated for Best Male Solo Artist and Mastercard Album of the Year.



Grime star (and actor) Stormzy will return to the Brits stage tonight two years after winning Best Male Solo Artist and Album of the Year for Gang Signs & Prayer.

The rapper released his new album Heavy is the Head in December, and is nominated for three awards tonight: Best Male, Song of the Year and Mastercard Album of the Year.
