The 'Different' singer is widely expected to close this year's awards ceremony to celebrate his success.

Robbie Williams has been linked to a potential headline performance at this year's BRIT Awards.

The 'Candy' singer is reportedly being lined up to sing at the 2013 ceremony this February, after making a successful pop comeback in 2012 with his latest album 'Take The Crown'.

According to the Daily Star, a spokesman claims although nothing has been finalised Robbie is expected to perform, as well as being a strong contender to win this year's Best British Male award.

Over the course of his lengthy pop career Robbie has already picked up a total of 17 BRIT awards, including winning Best Solo Male on a number of occasions.

Robbie's album 'Take The Crown' has already spawned two successful singles with 'Candy' and 'Different', with 'Be A Boy' tipped to be the record's third release.

The BRIT Awards 2013 will be hosted by James Corden and take place at London's O2 Arena on 20th February 2013.
