Sir Rod Stewart is set to close the show at The BRIT Awards 2020, which will be held on Feb. 18 at the O2 Arena in London.
It will be the 40th edition of the British Phonographic Industry’s annual pop music awards. Comedian Jack Whitehall will host the show for the third year in a row. Lewis Capaldi and Dave are the top nominees, with four nods each.
Stewart joins a talent lineup that also includes Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Capaldi, Harry Styles, Celeste, Dave, Mabel and Stormzy. Eilish performed at both the Grammys and the Oscars this year. Lizzo performed at the Grammys.
“Happy to be asked to close out The BRITs on their 40th show celebrations,” Stewart, 75, said in a statement.
This will be the second time Stewart has performed at The BRITs. He first played at the 1993 show where he also picked up an honorary award, outstanding contribution to music. It is not known if Stewart will receive an honorary award this year.
Stewart has amassed 10 No. 1 albums on The Official U.K. Albums Chart. His chart-topping albums in his home country span more than 48 years, from Every Picture Tells a Story (1971) to last year’s You’re In My Heart, a collaboration with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Stewart has landed six No. 1 singles on The Official U.K. Singles Chart. They span nearly 12 years, from 1971’s double-sided classic “Maggie May”/”Reason to Believe” to 1983’s “Baby Jane.”
