Jorja Smith to Perform with Rag’n’Bone Man
Jorja Smith will become the first BRITs Critics’ Choice winner to perform on The BRITs main show in the same year as winning the award. The 2017 winner of Critics’ Choice and British Breakthrough Act, Rag’n’Bone Man invited the R&B prodigy to perform alongside him following an incredible 12 months since winning the awards. It will be the first time that two Critics’ Choice winners have performed together on The BRITs stage.
Jorja was one of the live highlights of The BRITs Nominations Launch which broadcast live on ITV1 on 13 January, stunning the audience at home and in the studio with her single ‘Let Me Down’ featuring Stormzy. Jorja will embark on a sold out UK headline tour ahead of The Awards show.
On the announcement, Jorja said: “I can’t believe I’ll be performing at The BRIT Awards. Rag’n’Bone Man has had an incredible year and is such a crazy talent. When he asked me at the end of last year to perform I was so happy as it's a real honour to be sharing the stage with him.”
Rag’n’Bone Man’s debut album ‘Human’ went straight to No.1 in February, achieving the fastest selling UK male debut of the decade and selling over 2.5 million copies worldwide.
BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “It will be an amazing moment from two incredible artists: One artist who has achieved huge success last year performing with another artist who is about to do the same this year. Jorja's performance on the launch show was simply stunning and I cannot wait to see her perform with Rag’n’Bone Man on the main show.”
