The BRIT Awards with Mastercard today announce that best-selling British pop star Anne-Marie and #1 music artist KSI are to perform together, along with Digital Farm Animals, at next week’s BRITs, completing the line up which also sees Adele, Dave, Ed Sheeran, Holly Humberstone, Liam Gallagher, Little Simz and Sam Fender on the show.
Chart-topping singer Anne-Marie will take to the stage for a special performance with rap artist KSI, along with DJ/Producer Digital Farm Animals. The trio’s Platinum-certified hit single ‘Don’t Play’ is nominated for Song of the Year with Mastercard, having featured on the new albums from both Anne-Marie and KSI, and marks Anne-Marie’s 11th BRIT nomination to date. KSI is nominated for a second time in Song of the Year for his track ‘Holiday’.
Anne-Marie: “Performing at this year’s BRIT Awards!! Yaaaaay. Can’t wait for you to see what we have planned!!”
KSI: I’m honoured to be sharing the stage at The BRIT Awards 2022 with my friends, the very talented Anne-Marie and Digital Farm Animals – what better way to celebrate our nomination for Song of the Year!”
Digital Farm Animals: I am so excited and grateful to be a BRIT nominated artist for ‘Don’t Play’ this year! I’ve been fortunate to have worked with and written for so many talented artists over the years, which is a privilege in itself, but never thought I'd be performing alongside so many of them!! I’m also the first pig to ever perform on the BRITs so I hope this opens the door for others in the future. Thank you to everyone who has supported my music. Love you x”
