BRITs 2022 performers
The first group of performers included Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Little Simz, Doja Cat, and Holly Humberstone. Subsequently, more names were added to the list of performers. Adele, Sam Fender, Dave, Anne Marie, and KSI will be performing at the award show happening on this 8.
Moreover, the likes of Ed Sheeran, Adele, Holly Humberstone, and Little Simz are in the nominations for the awards in various categories. Holly among others will perform as the recipient of this year’s Rising Star Award. She was presented the award by the 2019 title winner, Sam Fender.
The performer who pulled out of the show
Doja Cat, however, has pulled out of performing in the show due to potential COVID danger. The crew members of her team tested positive for the virus forcing Doja to pull out of the show. This would have been her first ever UK performance if she’d been able to pull it off.
The statement, released by Doja Cat on January 31, read: “It’s simply not safe for us to continue to rehearse together and put each other in harm’s way. I can’t wait to perform for my UK fans as soon as I can.” However, she’s still nominated for the awards in two categories for her album ‘Planet Her’.
