Ariana Grande pulls out of ‘surprise’ Brits performance due to illness

Ariana Grande has pulled out of performing at tonight’s Brit Awards, just hours before the show.
She was set to play a tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack, which took place at her concert last year.

In May 2017, an explosive device murdered 22 people after the gig in Manchester Arena.

Liam Gallagher’s reportedly been drafted in to do the tribute instead.

The former Oasis frontman stepped in after Ariana Grande had to pull out due to illness.

Other performers tonight include Foo Fighters, Justin Timberlake and Dua Lipa who’s leading the nominations with five.

Attendees are being urged to wear a white rose pin in solidarity with the TimesUp movement.
