Justin Timberlake Confirmed For BRIT Awards 2013 Performance

The 'Cry Me A River' singer will take to the stage at London's O2 Arena later this month.

Justin Timberlake has been officially confirmed to perform at the BRIT Awards 2013.

The 'SexyBack' star was rumoured to be making an appearance at the annual industry event earlier this morning (1st February) but reports have since been confirmed by the BRITs themselves.

The US star joins the likes of One Direction, Robbie Williams and Mumford & Sons who are all featured on the line-up for the 20th February event.

Justin gave one of the all time great performances at the 2003 version of the show when he grabbed Kylie Minogue's bottom in front of the live audience.

The former N*Sync star has previously won three prizes at the show including Best International Male twice.

Justin will make his first live performance since announcing his return to music at a pre-Super Bowl party this weekend. 

Speaking about the 'What Goes Around' star's involvement with the BRITs 2013, Chairman David Joseph said: "Justin is an exceptional artist with global appeal and unrivalled successes."

He continued: "We are thrilled to add him to a stellar line-up that will celebrate an amazing year of music and make this one of the strongest BRIT live shows to date."

The singer will also be taking to the stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on 10th February for the Grammy Awards 2013.

Justin's new album 'The 20/20 Experience' will be released on 18th March and features new single 'Suit & Tie'.
