Kanye Believe It! Yeezy To Perform At The BRIT Awards 2015
Reports claim West has stepped in for pal Rihanna after she was a no-show at rehearsals this week...
It’s the second time the rapper has performed at The BRITs, with West previously gracing the stage in 2006 with a medley of his hits Diamonds From Sierra Leone, Gold Digger and Touch The Sky.
According to The Sun, Kanye stepped in to replace FourFiveSeconds collaborator Rihanna at the bash, after she apparently failed to turn up for rehearsals on Monday (February 23) - despite being in the UK.
An industry insider told the tabloid: “Everything was prepared for Rihanna’s performance but she was a no-show. The organisers are furious as she was one of their biggest coups.
“Kanye is just as big a star as Rihanna and is always good value at awards shows.”
It is thought Yeezy will perform new single Only One, with wife Kim Kardashian expected to grab the best seat in the house to witness her hubby in action.
Meanwhile, hosts Ant & Dec have joked that they hope West will be up to his old tricks at the ceremony, with Ant stating: “Come on, give us a Kanye moment!”
However, Dec didn’t seem to keen on West have one of his infamous rants, adding: “As hosts, we just need to keep things moving. We’re not going to wrestle anybody to the ground or stand in their way.
“As long as nobody dies, we should be all right.”
The BRIT Awards 2015 takes place tonight Wednesday, February 25, live from London’s O2 Arena.
