Jess Glynne with H.E.R. performs during The Brit Awards 2019 held at The O2 Arena on Feb. 20, 2019 in London, England.

The duet is the latest single from Glynne's 2018 album "Always in Between."

Jess Glynne and H.E.R. took the stage at London’s O2 arena on Wednesday (Feb. 20) to perform their duet “Thursday” at the 2019 Brit Awards.

Glynne kicked off the empowering ballad in an ivory gown with shoulder cutouts, singing into a mirror while flanked by an army of women peering into ring lights.  

“Sometimes I try to embrace all my insecurities/ So I won’t wear makeup on Thursday/ ’Cause who I am is enough,” Glynne sang while removing her false eyelashes and wiping away her makeup.

Seated next to Glynne in a transparent jacket and sunglasses, H.E.R. took over the song’s second verse as the rest of the women onstage confidently revealed the faces underneath their makeup, their smiles projected onto screens throughout the arena.

For the rousing final chorus, the two stars stepped out from behind the mirrors as all the women silently rose in a powerful statement of female solidarity.

Glynne was nominated for four awards at this year’s ceremony, including British female solo artist, British artist video of the year and two separate nominations for British single of the year.
