Justin Timberlake is set to perform at the BRIT Awards for the first time since 2003 after releasing his new single 'Suit & Tie' earlier this year
Justin Timberlake is set to perform at the BRIT Awards next month.
The 'Suit & Tie' hitmaker is heading to the UK for the prestigious ceremony - held at London's The O2 venue on February 20 - joining performers including fellow US singer Beyonce.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Justin will christen his comeback with a performance at the BRITs. Talks between the organisers, his label and management have been ongoing since the start of the year.
"Justin's team have been plotting his return carefully. He loves the UK and wants to announce his comeback with a top set.
"Brits bosses know that his performance, as well as Beyonce's, will bring a huge TV audience."
It is hoped Beyonce's rapper husband Jay-Z - who features on Justin's new single - will also take to the stage during the show.
Justin last performed at the BRITs in 2003, where he caused controversy by appearing to grab pop star Kylie Minogue's bum during a duet on Blondie's song 'Rapture'.
The 32-year-old star has two other live appearances before then. He will make his live comeback in New Orleans at the 'DIRECTV Super Saturday Night' pre-party for Super Bowl XLVII tomorrow (03.02.13) as well as performing at the 2013 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles a week later on February 10.
