Brits: Hugh Jackman Opening Confirmed

Hugh Jackman has been unveiled as a surprise performer at the Brits.

He’ll open the February 20th awards at London’s O2 Arena with an all-singing, all dancing performance from his hit movie, The Greatest Showman.

While it might seem like an unexpected choice, the film’s soundtrack was the UK’s best selling album of last year, and topped the charts in several countries including the US, Australia, UK and Japan.

BRITs Chairman and Chairman & CEO of Sony Music UK and Ireland Jason lley said: “We are delighted to welcome the Golden Globe and Tony Award winning superstar Hugh Jackman to the BRITs stage this month with a performance that is set to be nothing short of spectacular.

“The Greatest Showman soundtrack dominated the charts in 2018 breaking records all over the world as well as here in the UK.

“It’s only fitting that the UK’s biggest celebration of musical successes should be kicked off with a performance from the biggest selling album in the UK of the last year.”
