We thought it, we hoped it and now we know it. One Direction WILL be at The Brit Awards this evening.
The band have been nominated in three categories – Best Single, Best Video and Best Band – at the ceremony and while it doesn’t look like they will be performing (but hey it’s The Brits…so anything could happen), it seems that Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik will be in the O2 Arena later tonight.
The band face competition from popular acts such as Bastille, Rudimental, Calvun Harris and Ellie Goulding in their categories and Niall in particular can’t wait to meet the challenge head on. He tweeted about his excitement this afternoon and posted on Twitter saying:
“Can’t wait for tonight! gona be a good laugh ! #”
Niall’s looking forward to seeing his bandmates again and added:
“First time we have all been together for a while now! lookin forward to seeing the lads ! #BRITs2014”
One Direction went on a break in December 2013 and have spent the past two months travelling, relaxing and catching up with loved ones.
They’ve been home, been on holiday and Horan has even had surgery in that time, but now duty calls once more.
Meanwhile, it’s finally been confirmed that Beyonce will be playing at tonight’s event.
Rumours have been circulating for months but James Corden announced that Queem B will be on stage this evening and even better, she’ll be performing a brand new song for the crowd.
While 1D might be getting their hopes up however, Ellie Goulding has admitted that she isn’t expecting to win any awards tonight. She insisted she’s become a ‘professional’ loser, after failing to lift so many gongs. However she is planning a very special performance for the audience.
In other Brit Awards news, Nile Rodgers has confirmed he’ll be joining Pharrell Williams on stage, while James Corden has been dropping hints about what he has planned for his final night as host. There will be some dangerous stuff going down!
