February 25, 2015 9:23 AM
Kanye West has been revealed as a last-minute addition to tonight’s performers at the Brit Awards.
Mr West will perform a track from his 80% complete, as-yet-untitled album.
He will join Madonna, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith, Royal Blood, George Ezra and Take That on the performer roster.
West has previously won three Brit Awards and has been nominated eight times.
He last performed at the Brits in 2006, when he played ‘Diamonds From Sierra Leone’, ‘Gold Digger’ and ‘Touch The Sky’.
Candice Morrissey, head of YouTube music partnerships across Europe, said: “Kanye West tops off an amazing set of performers at this year’s Brit Awards with some of the biggest British and global stars taking the stage. We’re excited to partner with the Brits again this year so anyone outside of the UK who can’t tune in on TV can watch their favourite artists live on the Brits YouTube channel.”
The Brit Awards will take place at London’s O2 Arena tonight (February 25) and will air live at 8pm on ITV.
The show is streaming live worldwide on YouTube.
