Rudimental aim to "outdo" other performers at the BRITs tonight (19.02.14).
The band - made up of Amir Amor, Piers Agget, Kesi Dryden and DJ Locksmith - are up for three awards and will also take to the stage at London's O2 Arena, joining the likes of Katy Perry, Beyonce, Ellie Goulding, Lorde and Arctic Monkeys.
Amir told The Sun newspaper: "It's a massive line-up. We're going to try to outdo everyone else. We're going to play live and play to our strengths ... we're not gonna have pole dancers or whatever."
Band mate Piers added: "We're playing 'Waiting All Night' and there'll be a 'wow factor'. We'll push the music and the fact that we play everything live."
'Waiting All Night' is up for Best Single at the ceremony, while they are also nominated for Best Group and Best Album for their successful debut, 'Home'.
But they realise they have some stiff competition, going up against One Direction for Best Group, along with Disclosure, Arctic Monkeys and Bastille.
Rudimental are still hopeful and say they are taking the ceremony seriously this year and intend to leave the drinking until the after party.
Amir admits: "At these kind of things the nerves kick in and you have one glass of champagne, then two, three, four, five. We're gonna be doing a little after party, like us and Disclosure. A mash-up boat party.
"We've done so many gigs together and we've seen each other grow, and we play their tunes in our DJ sets."
Later this year, the band will be working on their second album and heading out on the road, touring in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
Piers added: "We've been jamming and there are some ideas that we're excited about. There's a funk feel so far - so Amir's got to learn some slap bass."
