Rag'n'Bone Man is the latest performer to sign up to the BRIT Awards 2018, joining Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Dua Lipa, Stormzy and Foo Fighters.

The 'Human' singer – real name Rory Graham – won the Critics' Choice Award last year, so his addition to the performing line-up this year isn't entirely surprising.

But there's no doubting that he has had a pretty big year, with his debut album Human going straight to Number One in the charts and becoming the fastest selling UK male debut of the decade.

Alongside his Critics' accolade, the singer also bagged the British Breakthrough Act award at last year's ceremony.

"Jheez! 2017 has flown by super quick," Rag'n'Bone Man said. "It's pretty mental to think that I bagged two awards at the BRITs last year and now I'm heading back to perform.

"I'm looking forward to being a part of the celebration with everyone. It's going to be a good one for sure!"

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley added: "Rory epitomises how dreams can come true. He has had the most amazing 12 months and I'm so delighted to see him back where it all started."

The 2018 nominations will be announced tonight (January 13) as part of The BRITs Are Coming on ITV at 5.45pm.

The BRIT Awards 2018 will take place on Saturday, February 21, hosted by Jack Whitehall.
