Ed Sheeran confirmed as latest act to perform at the 2017 Brit Awards

ED Sheeran has become the latest star confirmed to perform at this year’s Brit Awards.

The 'Castle on the Hill' singer joins acts including Little Mix and Robbie Williams who will take to the stage later this month for the annual ceremony.

The 25-year-old took to his Twitter page this morning to share the news and wrote: “I’ll be performing at this year’s @brits – got my own emoji as well.”

And he ended his post with an emoticon of a red-headed man wearing glasses.

BRIT Awards Chairman and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “We are delighted to announce that Ed Sheeran will be performing at this year’s BRIT Awards.

“Ed continues to be one of the most exciting, innovative artists in the world – constantly pushing boundaries with everything he does. This year's exclusive performance will be a very special moment for the 37th BRIT Awards.”

Ed, who won the British Breakthrough Act gong at The BRITs in 2012, isn’t nominated for any awards this year.

However, rock band The 1975 and Emelie Sande, who are both performing on the night, are nominated for Mastercard Album of the Year and British Female Solo Artist respectively.

Bruno Mars, who is nominated for International Male Solo Artist will also be performing on the night.

Katy Perry is in talks to headline the prestigious music ceremony, following in the footsteps of big US stars like Madonna, Kanye West and Prince.

As revealed by the Sun, a source said: “Katy Perry is looking likely to be this year’s blockbuster act. The ceremony needs a big US name and bosses are deep in negotiations with her team to get it over the line.

"The deal is not signed and sealed yet but everyone wants the same outcome."

And Robbie Williams, who holds the record for the most BRITs ever, having bagged an impressive 18 prizes, is thrilled to have been invited to come back and perform again after being honoured with the BRITs Icon gong.

He previously said: "I'm delighted to be performing at the BRITs once again. It's always a special night for music – this year feels like a big one."
