Paloma Faith, George Ezra and Royal Blood to perform at BRITs 2015
Paloma Faith, George Ezra and Royal Blood have joined the line-up and will be performing live at The BRITs 2015, broadcast exclusively on ITV. They will join Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith for an incredible evening celebrating the biggest achievements in music in 2014.
Paloma Faith, who performed at the 2011 ceremony with Cee-Lo Green, has been nominated for three BRITs in the past including British Female Solo Artist at the 2013 event. Her third album 'A Perfect Contradiction' went to No. 2 on release earlier this year, becoming her fastest selling album to date.
Speaking about her involvement, Paloma said: “It's been a lifelong ambition of mine to perform solo at the BRITs – I’m so excited! Last year was such a fun year for me and all my fans it will be great for us to celebrate that together.”
With a debut No. 1 album under his belt, George Ezra will be following a sold-out UK tour with this special BRITs performance and it looks like 2015 can only get bigger and better for him.
George had this to say: “Having grown up watching the BRITs it's a huge honour to be invited to perform. And it's on the telly as well so my mum gets to see it, which is nice."
Brighton rock duo Royal Blood (a.k.a. Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher) seemed to come out of nowhere to become one of the most talked about acts of 2014. Their eponymous debut topped the album charts and was the fastest selling British rock debut album of the past three years. They smashed their way through the festival circuit last summer and their performance will be sure to rock your socks off on the night.
