Brit Awards 2013: James Corden, Emeli Sande And Muse Put In Final Rehearsals (PICS)

Excitement for tonight's Brit Awards is reaching fever pitch, and down at The O2 last minute rehearsals are underway to ensure the show is the spectacle we've all been promised.

And despite host James Corden being struck down with tonsillitis, he was seen going through his lines on stage as construction finished around him.

It was touch and go whether the comic would be able to make the show, with Chris Evans on standby, but James has managed to power through his illness.

Muse, Ben Howard and Emeli Sande were also putting the finishing touches to their performances ahead of tonight's bash, which kicks off on ITV at 8pm.
