"After three years, I'm excited to return to the BRITs' stage to kick off a new era of purposeful pop."
And the blonde beauty - who previously bagged herself a BRIT in 2009 for Best International Female Solo Artist - also teased fans with the news on Twitter as she claimed she was excited to bring the "second chapter" to her new song to the prestigious event, following her debut performance of the track at the Grammys in Los Angeles on Sunday (12.02.17).
She tweeted: "YAY 2nd chapter of #ChainedToTheRhythm continues in LONDON! (sic)"

And Katy, like all of this year's performers, has been given her own special BRITs emoji.
A post on the official BRIT Awards Twitter account (@BRITs) unveiled the creation along with the message: "Of course #BRITs performer @katyperry has an official emoji and OF COURSE it's adorable!!! #KatyPerryBRITs #BRITs (sic)"
