Rapper Stormzy will perform at the 2023 Brit Awards, along with other artists, organisers have confirmed.

The 29-year-old is the latest act to join the Brit Awards bill alongside global superstar Harry Styles as well French DJ David Guetta, US pop star Lizzo, and British singer-songwriters Ella Henderson and Becky Hill.

Previously announced artists also include British pop star Sam Smith, German singer Kim Petras and rock duo Wet Leg.

Both Styles and Wet Leg lead the nominations at this year’s Brits, both having secured four each, with Stormzy following with three nods for album of the year, artist of the year and hip hop grime rap act.

His latest offering, This Is What I Mean, marked his third UK number one album following the success of Heavy Is The Head in 2019 and 2017’s Gang Signs & Prayer.

The grime artist and rapper also performed a headline set at Glastonbury in 2019, becoming the first black solo British headliner in the festival’s history.

Stormzy is joined by The 1975, newcomer Cat Burns and dance music DJ Fred Again, who all scored three Brit nominations this year.

Meanwhile artists including George Ezra, Arctic Monkeys, Nova Twins, Aitch and Dave claimed two.

Debut nominations went to K-pop girl group Blackpink, Eurovision star Sam Ryder, Kentucky rapper Jack Harlow and British grime and hip hop artist Kojey Radical.

Ryder, who came second at the Eurovision Song Contest this year before climbing to number one with his debut album, was among the nominees for best new artist.

In the international artist of the year category, three of America’s biggest female acts – Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Lizzo – will battle it out for the prize.

This year, four genre categories will be decided by the public via a vote on TikTok – alternative rock act, hip hop rap grime act, dance act and pop R&B act.

R&B girl group Flo were previously announced as the winners of the 2023 Rising Star award.

The Brits Awards 2023 will take place on February 11, hosted by Mo Gilligan, and will broadcast live on ITV1 and ITVX from London’s The O2 arena.
