Adele confirmed as first BRIT Awards performer
Adele is the first artist confirmed to perform at the BRIT Awards 2016.
The 'Hello' hitmaker - who made her triumphant return to the music industry this year after a four-year hiatus - will perform at the ceremony held at London's O2 Arena on February 24.
BRITs chairman Max Lousada said: "You couldn't get a bigger name in music right now. Adele is having an exceptional moment and the Brits are delighted to be a part of her history, her present and future."
It is likely to be an emotional performance for the 27-year-old singer - who is a three-time BRIT Award winner herself - as she recently teared up during her first fully live concert in four years.
She told the crowd: "I know I've been quiet, I just wanted to come back and surprise you. I didn't want to tell you anything because I wanted it to be a surprise. I feel like this is the start now.
"We've been planning it for months and I'm just so happy and before the show I was like, 'Oh God I want it to be over,' because I was so nervous, but I've managed to remember every moment of this show."
