Rihanna will perform at the Brit Awards for the first time since 2012.
The Press Association reported that the organisers confirmed Rihanna’s appearance with a tweet: “Surprise. Rihanna is performing at #BRITs 2016! We. Cannot. Deal.”
The Brit Awards 2016 with MasterCard will take place on 24th February 2016.
Her newly released studio album called “Anti” has already gone platinum in the UK, as well as hitting the number one spot on iTunes in 30 countries.
The other stars who will perform at London’s O2 Arena include Adele, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Little Mix, James Bay, The Weeknd and Jess Glynne.
The global pop superstar will make her first BRITs performance since 2012 when she wowed the audience with ‘We Found Love’.
Rihanna first performed at the ceremony in 2008 with a rendition of ‘Umbrella’ alongside The Klaxons. She also boasts six BRITs nominations and two BRIT Award wins, both for International Female Solo Artist.
She will embark on a UK stadium tour in June.
Adele leads nominations for the 2016 event with nods in four categories. James Bay and Years & Years have also picked up four nominations.
Coldplay could make Brit Awards history if they are successful in the categories for which they have been nominated, with the most ever wins for British group and British album.
