On U2's upcoming performance, Ged Doherty, Chairman of The BRITs Committee, reveals his excitement. "We're thrilled to be able to confirm that U2 have chosen The BRITs for their first global TV performance on their new album. Their addition to the line-up for this year's show makes it possibly the best we have ever had. This cements The BRITs as one of the biggest TV events in the world," so he claims.
