Little Mix and The Weeknd are among performers added to the line-up for the Brit Awards 2016. The acts will entertain the masses during the live awards ceremony, which is set to take place at London's O2 Arena on 24 February 2016.

Joining the girl group and US r'n'b singer on the bill are Hold My Hand songstress Jess Glynne and crooner James Bay. The new additions to the performance schedule rounds off what is already an impressive line-up with superstar Adele, rock band Coldplay and heartthrob Justin Bieber previously confirmed.

Each performer has enjoyed incredible success over the last year with Adele storming back to the charts with her third album 25, which has become one of the most popular albums of the century while The Weeknd's second album Beauty Behind The Madness was one of the most critically-acclaimed releases of 2015 and has earned him several Grammy nominations.

Jess Glynne, 26, released her debut album I Cry When I Laugh to much applause and claimed the number one spot on the UK chart, as did James Bay with his debut Chaos And The Calm. Taking to the Brit Awards stage will feel like familiar ground for Bay, who won the coveted Critics' Choice Award in 2015.

In addition to the performances, the Brits have confirmed a tribute broadcast to honour legendary musician David Bowie, who died on 10 January 2016. Announcing the special segment, Brits chairman Max Lousada said in a statement: "David Bowie was one of the most important and influential songwriters and performers ever and, like so many fans around the world, we're devastated to hear of his loss.

The nominations for the Brit Awards 2016 will be announced on 14 January ahead of the ceremony, which will be hosted by Ant and Dec and broadcast live on ITV1.
