Kanye West has been added to tonight's BRIT Awards 2015 lineup.

We kind of suspected Mr West may appearance at the annual music awards ceremony when he jetted into London last week, and it looks like we were right!

BRIT organisers have confirmed Kanye will take to the stage this evening for what will be his second BRIT Awards performance. He previously performed a medley back in 2007 consisting of 'Gold Digger', 'Diamonds' and 'Touch The Sky'.

Rumour has it he'll perform an exclusive new track tonight.

Other artists performing include Taylor Swift (stay away from the stage, Kanye!), Madonnna, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith and Take That.

Ed teased in an interview with Capital FM this morning that there was a "surprise performer" as well... we're wondering if he meant Kanye, who was a late addition, or someone else totally new?!

Ed Sheeran on Capital FM this morning.

He told Capital Breakfast with Dave Berry & Lisa Snowdon: "There is a surprise performer that I know about, only because their manager emailed to say they were in town, and I was 'oh, really?!' So yeah, there is a surprise performer."

When Lisa asked, "Can I guess?", the star replied: "Erm, you probably can… but don't say it because I don't like spoiling other people's surprises which I do all the time!"

Oh, come on, we want to know!

Ed will perform a stripped down, longer version of his track 'Bloodstream' this evening.

"It's the best live performance of my show that I do, in the gig, so I'm doing it! I really like it, I think it'll work, I just don't know if it's gonna work on TV. "

The BRITS take place tonight at The O2 in London and will broadcast exclusively on ITV.
