Amy Winehouse is confirmed by organizers to make an appearance at the awards event and reportedly will perform 'Valerie' with DJ Mark Ronson.
Failing to appear in flesh at 50th Grammy Awards earlier this month, Amy Winehouse is confirmed to give a live performance at 2008 BRIT Awards today (February 20). Organizers confirmed that she will make a surprise appearance at the London event.
"I heard her rehearse last night and she sounded absolutely great," Ged Doherty, chairman of the BRIT Awards, told Sky News. "We are just thrilled to have her appearing at the ceremony. At times it has been a difficult year for Amy but what has never been in doubt is that she is a real talent."
Doherty continued that Winehouse's performance will possibly become one of the event's highlights that pick the "BRIT's moments" title and that it will be "part of a really strong line-up."
The ceremony will be held at Earls Court and broadcast live on ITV1. It was reported previously that Winehouse will do a duet with Mark Ronson on their cover of The Zutons' "Valerie".
