Kanye West to play BRIT Awards

25 February 2015, 10:40 | Written by Laurence Day

Kanye West has been confirmed as the final performer at tonight's BRIT Awards (25 February).

Kanye joins the likes of Taylor Swift, Madonna, Royal Blood and Sam Smith, and this will mark the first time in almost a decade that he's performed at the BRITs. In 2006, he played a medley of "Diamonds from Sierra Leone", "Gold Digger" and "Touch The Sky" accompanied by 77 gold-painter backing dancers.

Not one to replicate spectacles, Kanye's performance with Rihanna and Paul McCartney looks unlikely to resurface. However, he has dropped a variety of fresh sounds lately - including a collab with Sia and Vic Mensa - so there's plenty to choose from.

The BRIT Awards will be aired on ITV from 8pm tonight, and will also be live broadcast via YouTube.

Candice Morrissey, Head of YouTube Music Partnerships across Europe said of Kanye being announced as the final performer:

“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."
