Liam Payne and Paloma Faith have been announced as performers for the Brit noms launch next year.
Taking place on 13 January, the event will see all category nominees announced ahead of the show on February 21.
And some huge names are set to perform to kick off the excitement for the music awards.
Liam Payne and Paloma Faith will also be joined by Critics’ Choice winner Jorja, as well as Clean Bandit and J Hus.
Emma Willis will be back hosting the nominations, and said: ‘I am delighted to be back hosting The Brits Are Coming. It’s always a fun show to be involved in and I can’t wait to find out which acts have been nominated in 2018.’
Jack Whitehall will be taking centre stage at the main event at London’s O2, having been announced as next year’s host.
The funnyman said: ‘I’m thrilled to be hosting the BRITs, it is the kind of show you dream of hosting as a kid, so really excited to have been asked.’
Jorja Smith followed in the footsteps of Adele, Sam Smith, and Florence + The Machine to grab the award that recognises ‘the future stars of British recording talent.’
The 20-year-old singer has enjoyed a stellar 2017, placing in the top five of the BBC’s Sound Of… poll, releasing her debut EP, Project 11, and collaborating with Drake on his excellent More Life mixtape.
Speaking about winning the Critics’ Choice award, Smith said: ‘I cannot believe it, it’s been an unforgettable 2017 during which I’ve fulfilled so many of my dreams and this is such a special way to end the year… and to be part of an all-female shortlist alongside Mabel and Stefflon Don, who’ve both had incredible 2017s, makes it even better!
‘There’s lots more to come in 2018 from all of us and I will do my best to make it another memorable year!’
The Brits Are Coming will be live on ITV at 5.45pm on January 13.
