Rihanna + Coldplay Rumored to Perform Together at the 2012 BRIT Awards
The 2012 BRIT Awards have yet to even announce their nominees, but The Sun is reporting that Coldplay and Rihanna have already agreed to perform their collaboration ‘Princess of China’ at the ceremony.
The superstars have not played the song together live, so this would mark the debut performance of ‘Princess of China’ if they don’t team up before then. Both acts have played the BRITs in the past. At the 2008 show, Rihanna took part in an unusual collaboration with British indie band the Klaxons, who joined RiRi on ‘Umbrella.’
The Sun says Adele, who has been resting her voice for some time, will be singing ‘Someone Like You’ on the show, although that would make little sense since she performed the song at last year’s BRITs. The Sun also claims Kasabian and Noel Gallagher will be on the bill.
A spokesperson for the BRITs said, “We are still confirming the line-up, which will be announced with the nominations in January. We are working to make it the best show yet, with the biggest names in music performing.”
The BRITs — the U.K. equivalent of the Grammys — take place on Feb. 21 in London, nine days after the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
