The 'R.I.P.' singer has three nominations at the event and has said she's confident it will be a great night with the US star on the line-up.

"Oh my God really? No I'm really excited, I love Timberlake," she told Capital FM. "I love that new song as well – that song's wicked.

"It's going to be a big party I can see it."

Speaking about which of her prizes she would love to pick up on the night, she picked out British Breakthrough, because it is fan voted.
