Hugh Jackman is opening the BRIT Awards 2019 (and, yes, that's an introductory sentence we never expected to write).
The actor will channel his Greatest Showman character PT Barnum in a performance of 'The Greatest Show' – directed by The Greatest Showman director Michael Gracey – which will open this year's ceremony.
Hugh announced the news himself in a video posted on his Instagram page, which you can check out below:
"Don't tell anyone...keep it to yourself...but we're opening the BRITs," he says to his tour members.
"Why don't we work on 'The Greatest Show'? For no reason..."
He will perform a number of hits from The Greatest Showman and beyond.
Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa, Sam Smith and Rag'n'Bone Man, Jess Glynne and HER, The 1975, George Ezra, Little Mix and Ms Banks, and Jorja Smith are among the other performers at this year's BRIT Awards.
