First performers announced for The BRIT Awards 2022 live on ITV
January 21, 2022
The BRIT Awards with Mastercard has announced the first wave of performers for this year’s BRIT Awards ceremony, taking place February 8th, live from The O2 arena, broadcast exclusively on ITV and ITV Hub, and streamed for non-UK viewers via The BRITs’ YouTube channel.
Performing to millions of fans and viewers will be Dave, Doja Cat, Ed Sheeran, Holly Humberstone, Liam Gallagher and Little Simz, in what is set to be another monumental show to celebrate the best of British and international music.
With Omicron continuing to present many challenges in terms of planning, organisers are working around the clock to pull together the best possible show and The BRITs will continue to lead the way in terms of putting on a live music event safely as the UK navigates the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Artists, Nominees and all guests will be asked to show a negative LFT test on arrival to the venue, and fans will this year be offered to purchase stall seats on the arena floor, where nominated artists will also take their seat in an exclusive area. The BRITs are this year working with Blue Light Tickets where the emergency services are invited to enter a ballot to come to the show, following the gifting of tickets to NHS front-line workers in 2021.
Audience members will not be socially distanced but will be asked to wear their masks when not eating or drinking, or in their seats. They will be required to follow existing Government guidance when travelling to the venue and adhere to rules set out by the event organisers.
The livestream, which will be hosted exclusively on YouTube for the 9th year in a row, will give non-UK viewers a front row seat to all the performances as they happen, as well as giving them access to the red carpet and backstage, with hosts to be announced soon.
