This will mark the first time Sam has performed at the Brits, having been the recipient of the Critics’ Choice award last year, shortly before the release of his number one album ‘In The Lonely Hour’.

All three of the confirmed artists have had an amazing year in 2014, with all of their albums hitting the top spot over the course of the year.
