THE Brit Awards 2019 will feature performances from the crème de la crème of British and international stars.

And on 20th February when the O2 London will be filled with a star-studded crowd to pick up gongs, who can we expect to see taking to the stage?

Hoping to make it The Greatest Show will be none other than The Greatest Showman Hugh Jackman who will be getting the fun underway with the help of an ensemble.

The all-star entertainer will be belting out a rendition of the title track of the soundtrack which was the biggest selling album of 2018 in the UK with 1.6million sales.

And it wouldn’t be the Brits without a performance by our favourite girlband – Little Mix – the four-piece are practically a national treasure at this point.

The girls performed their new track Think About Us at the Brits nominations reveal night back in January so it’s unclear what song they’ll chose to perform.

However we do know that they are teaming up with up and coming British rapper Ms. Banks.

And the girls will be sharing the stage with three-time nominees George Ezra and Jorja Smith who will later be performing on the night.

Likewise, two-time nominee The 1975 will also be taking to the stage.

Calvin Harris will join forces with Dua Lipa, Sam Smith and Rag’n’Bone for a mammoth mix of the Scot’s top tracks.

And what a force to be reckoned with they’ll be – they have eight nominations between them.

Dua is up for four nominations while Sam and Calvin have both racked up two nominations each.

Fellow four-time nominee Jess Glynne will also take to the stage for a world-exclusive performance of her hit tune Thursday featuring H.E.R

And to close off the spectacle will be P!nk who will grace the stage after receiving the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award.

The accolade will make her the first international soloist to ever receive the honour.

It’s likely that she’ll perform a world exclusive of her new song Walk Me Home.
