LET IT ROLL! Lewis Capaldi to perform at the BRIT Awards 2023 with Mastercard

LEWIS Capaldi is the final act confirmed to perform at the BRIT Awards 2023 with Mastercard.

The Scottish superstar – who is currently on his ‘Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent’ tour – completes this year’s star-studded bill for the music bash on February 11 at The O2 arena in London.

The ‘Pointless’ singer is nominated for Song of the Year with Mastercard this year, and previously went home with the same prize and Best New Artist in 2020.

Lewis has now revealed he had a “panic attack” before his expletive-laden appearance at the ceremony in 2021.

In a statement, he said: “Last time I played The BRIT Awards I was so scared that I had a panic attack before I went on, and then got hammered afterwards. Looking forward to more of the same this year.”

The ‘Someone You Loved’ hitmaker was presenting a prize to pop star Dua Lipa when he swore and forced ITV to censor the rest of his speech.

He shouted: “Hello motherf******!”

Lewis went on: “Listen guys.

“I’m f****** sweating. It’s like a swamp down there, I’m telling you. Sweaty b******.

“Hello BRIT Awards! That’s where we are. I’m really sorry, I’m reading off a card here – how is everyone doing?”


Stormzy is also to perform at the BRIT Awards 2023 with Mastercard, at which he is nominated for three prizes.

The 29-year-old rapper has a hat-trick of nominations ahead of the ceremony, for British Artist of the Year, Best Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap act, and Mastercard Album Of The Year for ‘This Is What I Mean’, and he will take to the stage at The O2 in London on February 11. 

The line-up also includes Harry Styles, Lizzo, Sam Smith and Kim Petras, Cat Burns, David Guetta and Becky Hill and Ella Henderson, and Wet Leg.

Comedian Mo Gilligan is returning to host the ceremony for the second year running.

While hosting last year, Mo – who took over from fellow comedian Jack Whitehall – was forced to apologise after swearing before the 9pm watershed during an hilarious impression of Liam Gallagher, and he’s vowed to go “even bigger” this year.

Mo told Politicalite: “Hosting the BRITs last year was one of the most phenomenal moments of my life.”

 “I’ve been so honoured to get to know the incredible team behind the biggest night in music and so proud to bring our amazing audiences even closer to their favourite artists. I promise you, we’re going to go even bigger this year… Let’s go!” added Mo.

The BRITs with Mastercard will be broadcast LIVE on ITV1 and ITVX on February 11th from The O2 arena.
