Dido Pulls Out Of Brit Awards
Dido has pulled out of performing at the 2004 BRIT Awards in association with MasterCard so she can concentrate on her forthcoming tour.
The sexy Londoner, who is up for three gongs including Best British Female, is planning to spend the next month writing and rehearsing for her World outing instead.
She said; "I've been desperate to get out on the road and now I will finally be able to make that a reality. Although I'll be sorry to miss all the fun and celebrations at the Brits."
Meanwhile Cat Deeley has been announced as the host of the Award ceremony, which will be held on February 17 at London's Earl's Court. The former MTV star will be joined onstage by guest presenters including Justin Timberlake who will be handing Duran Duran an Outstanding Contribution to Music Award.
