Brit Awards 2015: Madonna ‘To Perform At The Awards Show For The First Time In 20 Years'

Madonna is set to perform at the Brit Awards next month, according to reports.

It’s been 20 years since the ‘Rebel Heart’ hitmaker last took to the stage at the ceremony, but according to sources she’s currently preparing to showcase her new music at the Brits.



A source tells The Mirror: “Madonna wants to perform to the biggest number of people for the maximum impact and there’s no better place for a controversy-filled Madonna performance than the Brits.

“She has already confirmed she will perform at the Grammys, when she will debut the new music.”

Madonna rush-released a handful of tracks from her upcoming album ‘Rebel Heart’ when they leaked online last month, and the full album is due for release in March.

“She has cleared her diary for the Brits,” the source continues. “She knows she needs to really entertain and bring a good show because she’ll want to be the talking point.”

Madonna is already confirmed to perform at the Grammys, and if she takes to the stage at the Brits she’ll be joining a star-studded line-up, as Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith are all confirmed performers.

The Brit Awards will take place on Wednesday 25 February and Sam Smith leads the nominations, with five nods, while Ed Sheeran and George Ezra have scooped four each. See the full list of nominations here.
