The annual event will be hosted by BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans and former Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton and will be held at Birmingham's The Genting Arena on Thursday 10 December.

The BBC today (22.10.15) confirmed Ellie Goulding, Hozier, Jess Glynne, Mumford & Sons and OMI will also perform at the event.

Jess is particularly thrilled to be playing as she performed there in 2014 with Clean Bandit on their chart-topping collaboration 'Rather Be' and this year she will be their to perform as a solo artist.

In a statement, she said: "I'm really excited to be at this year's BBC Music Awards. I was there last year at the inaugural awards performing with Clean Bandit and it was a great night with a brilliant performance from Ed Sheeran among my personal favourites. To be back this year in my own right is amazing. I'm looking forward to it - roll on December."

Scottish star Hozier is also pleased to have been added to the star-studded bill.

He said: "I'm very excited to be playing at the BBC Music Awards this year alongside such a fantastic line up of artists. See you then."
