Robbie Williams fans can rejoice as it's been announced that he will be taking to the stage at the BRIT Awards next month.

The 'Rock DJ' hitmaker will headline the ceremony on February 22nd, alongside already announced performers Little Mix, Emeli Sandé and The 1975. 

Speaking on his pending performance, Robbie gushed: “I’m delighted to be performing at the BRITs once again. It’s always a special night for music - this year feels like a big one”. 

There's not a doubt that Robbie Williams is the king of the BRIT Awards, as he currently holds the record as the most-awarded BRITs winner in history with 17 BRIT Awards as a solo artist and as part of Take That. 

Last year he even received the BRITs Icon Award, which is presented to artists whose writing, recording and performances have made a lasting impact on British culture.

This year the nominations were announced during a special programme called The BRITs Are Coming hosted by Emma Willis.

During the hour long show it was revealed who was in the running for some of the most prestigious prizes in music such as Best British Single and Critic’s Choice.

Last year, David Bowie was awarded the posthumous Icon Award and this year he is up for Best Male Solo Artist and Album of the Year thanks to his album Blackstar that was released a mere two days before his death last year.

It’s also wondered whether George Michael will receive a well-deserved special honour this year after his tragic death on Christmas Day.

Other acts up for multiple awards in both the Video of the Year and Best British Single categories are Coldplay with their summer anthem, Hymn for the Weekend and Clean Bandit, Anne-Marie and Sean Paul with their Christmas number one single, Rockabye.

Surprisingly, Ellie Goulding is only up for one nod, Best British Female Solo Artist, and Adele also only has one mention in the Video Of The Year category with her single Send My Love (To Your New Lover).
