Famous YouTube funnyman Caspar Lee will bring you top gossip from the event on the official BRITs channel. And just who might Caspar be rubbing shoulders with? ROYALTY. Pop royalty, that’s who. This year’s bill is topped by Brit legends and international superstars and includes performances from Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Robbie Williams, Emeli Sandé, Little Mix, The 1975 and U.K. sensation Skepta. And given it’s the BRITs, you just know there’s going to be a whole lot more magic beyond the awards and performances themselves.
As Geoff Taylor, Chief Exec of The BPI and BRIT Awards says: “It’s really exciting for us that so many people around the world will get the chance to celebrate the U.K.’s biggest night in music live as it happens.” Well said, Geoff, couldn’t agree more.
After the live show, you’ll find performances from the artists on their own YouTube channels for you to relive again and again, plus there will be catch-up content on the BRITs channel itself. So, tune in to the official BRITs channel on February 22 at 2.30 p.m. ET and enjoy yourselves a Britpop bonanza.
Azi Eftekhari, Head of Music Partnerships at YouTube in EMEA, just relived Pharell’s impersonation of Skepta (“You Get Me?) on BBC Radio 1.
