As if One Direction performing at this year's Brit Awards wasn't enough, it's been announced that megastar Beyoncé will also grace the stage for her first live UK appearance since Glastonbury 18 months ago.

GAH, we're excited.

Bey is the fifth act confirmed to perform at the ceremony - which takes place on February 20 - joing not only 1D, but also Mumford & Sons, Robbie Williams and Muse.

A source told The Sun: “Beyonce coming to The Brits is a huge coup for organisers.

“She’s among the best live pop acts on the planet and will have brand new material to play for the audience.

“The last time she played The Brits, nine years ago, was at the start of her solo career, singing Crazy In Love. So it’s apt that she’s back this year.”
