fbpx Brit Awards: Dermot O'Leary Is Promising A Big Surprise | The Beat 99.9 FM

Dermot O'Leary is promising a big surprise at this year's Brit Awards.
He's been brought in to host the event with Emma Willis after Michael Buble pulled out to concentrate on his son's cancer treatment.
Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Skepta, Little Mix, Bruno Mars and The 1975 are all performing at London's O2 Arena on Wednesday night.


Dermot O'Leary says there'll be another big talking point from the event though but he can't tell anyone about it.
"I have seen it in the sound check and it is bring-the-house-down beautiful," he says."I knew what was going to happen and still I almost burst into tears. So it's properly good."


For the couple of years that James Corden hosted the awards, Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw had a kiss on stage and there's a suggestion that Dermot is open to reviving that tradition

"Yes, 100% yeah. But we're quite far away from him so I'll have to get over there and give him a snog." Emma Willis says she wants in on the act though. "I think he should go against type and just do it with me," she tells Newsbeat.


Nick Grimshaw is presenting the best British breakthrough act to either Anne-Marie, Blossoms, Rag'n'Bone Man, Skepta or Stormzy.
