Skepta & Bruno Mars Set To Perform At The BRIT Awards 2017

British emcee Skepta and American superstar Bruno Mars are the latest artists to be announced as performers at this year's BRIT Awards!

 

Since the #BritsSoWhite outrage last year, organisers of this year's awards ceremony had promised to shake things up making the 2017 awards more gender-balanced and diverse. Last year, artists such as Laura Mvula and Stormzy threatened to boycott the BRITs after it failed to nominate a single black artist in any major category.

 

The addition of Skepta and Bruno Mars to the line-up not only marks another move towards their new mission, but celebrates the tremendous year that both artists had last year. They will be joining other previously announced performers including The 1975, Robbie Williams, Little Mix and Emeli Sande.

 

Speaking on the addtion of Skepta and Bruno Mars, BRITs chairman Jason Iley said: "The Brit Awards is proud to attract international artists and we’re excited to welcome Bruno Mars back to the stage. Skepta is a homegrown talent who’s had an incredible year including three nominations and I can’t wait to see what he’ll bring to the event."

 

The BRIT Awards are due to take place on February 22nd.
