Brit Awards 2017: Michael Bublé ‘Will Not Host Ceremony’, As He Continues To Care For Son Diagnosed With Cancer

Noah, aged 3, was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016.

Michael Bublé will reportedly not host next month’s Brit Awards, as he continues to care for his son, Noah, who was diagnosed with cancer in late 2016.

Organisers of the annual music bash are now looking at a number of replacement presenters ahead of the event on 22 Feb, according to reports.

Just days after they shared the sad news, Michael’s friend David Foster claimed the singer would not perform again “until his child is well”.

Speaking on US television, he added: “When this happened, everything shuts down around you. You go inside your little bubble and I don’t think he’s looking at social media.

“I’m sure he feels the love from millions of people.”

‘The Voice’ presenter Emma Willis, who hosted the Brits launch show ‘The Brits Are Coming’, is thought to be the first choice to replace Michael.
