Blur will perform with a 32-piece gospel choir at the BRIT Awards tonight (21.02.12).

The Britpop band - who will be honoured with an Outstanding Contribution award at the ceremony at London's The O2 - have revealed plans for a special performance of their song 'Tender' at the show.

They wrote on twitter: "Exclusive! Outstanding Contribution winners Blur will perform Tender (with 32-piece London Community Gospel Choir) on ITV2 at 10pm tonightYES! Got MUSIC blaring getting ready :D (sic)"

Blur aren't the only act who are excited about tonight's awards, Jessie J - who last year won the Critic's Choice award and is nominated for three gongs this year - has plans to celebrate her whirlwind year in style.

She tweeted: "Its the @BRIT_Awards today!!! Woah what a year I'm going to celebrate tonight! :D (sic)"

Meanwhile, despite four nominations, Ed Sheeran knows it is not a foregone conclusion that he will win any, and he's just happy with how far he has come this year anyway.

He wrote on twitter: "Awards or no awards, I've had a brilliant year, thank you too all family, friends, radio dj's, media and every single fan who has supported!

"Let's go get 'em. Good luck to everyone else nominated, it's a fantastic time for British music at the moment (sic)"


Seminal Britpop outfit fronted by with an enviable and eclectic backcatlogue of indie hits including 'Country House', 'Parklife', 'Song 2' and 'There's No Other Way'.
