Launch Show Performers

Liam Payne is no stranger to The BRITs having won seven awards with One Direction and a nomination as a solo artist for his duet with Rita Ora 'For You'. He's a platinum-selling singer and he's sold more than 18 million singles in just 2 years as a solo artist!

Mabel has solidified her position this year as one the UK's biggest pop stars. Her bop 'Don't Call Me Up' is the biggest selling single of the year by a UK female artist! At just 23, Mabel already has a host of certified albums/mixtapes and singles, and her special ability to show vulnerability in her work has pushed her career massively.

Manchester-born Aitch is no doubt one of the biggest success stories of this year. His first track 'Straight Rhymez', which has over 15 million views on YouTube, pushed him into the limelight and he has since enjoyed massive success with hits such as 'Taste (Make It Shake)'. With an ever-growing fan base, he's one to watch out for!

Freya Ridings made her breakthrough with her platinum hit 'Lost Without You', which is currently on 200 million streams. She's since achieved big things and her debut album shot into the charts at number three. With a list of headline tours and major festival sets including Glastonbury, Freya continues to grow and 2020 will be a huge year for her.

Since the release of his April 2017 EP, 'Doves and Ravens', Dermot Kennedy has shot to over 800 million plays on streaming platforms and has won praise from many respected names. He was noted as a key artist to watch out for at the start of this year and has since seen his debut album, 'Without Fear' go to No. 1 in the UK!

It's sure to be a very exciting night! As always, we will have more updates in the weeks leading up to The BRIT Awards 2020 -- which will as ever be a huge celebration of the best music and stories over the past year!

The BRIT Awards 2020 takes place on 18 February at The O2 in London.
