    Brits preview 3: Coldplay to duet with Rihanna on Princess Of China according to reports / watch live links

    brits2012_2.jpgUPDATE: The media got it wrong! Coldplay actually played Charlie Brown...


    Coldplay are expected to take to the stage to perform Princess of China with Rihanna as they did at the GRAMMYs last week, while Blur, who will receive a lifetime achievement prize tonight, are set to perform an 11-minute medley. There are also whispers that Noel Gallagher will be duetting with Chris Martin, and other tributes to the late Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse are planned for the show. [Catch all the live discussion and latest live online stream links at the Brit Awards 2012 thread in the Coldplay forum now!]


    The Brit Awards, being held at London's O2 Arena tonight (Tuesday), is set to feature Adele's live UK comeback after the singer took a break to recover from throat surgery. Sheeran leads the nominations with four nods while Adele and Jessie J are up for three each. Adele's 21 is the bookie's favouite to win best British album beating Sheeran's +, Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto, Florence & The Machine's Ceremonials and PJ Harvey's Let England Shake. Before William Hill bookies closed betting on Friday evening, Adele was the clear favourite with William Hill, at 1/10 to win Best British Album for '21'. Coldplay were at 9/1 and Florence and the Machine at 10/1.


    However, Coldplay have been tipped to take home the gong for Best British Group over Kasabian, Chase & Status, Elbow and Arctic Monkeys. Sheeran is expected to be named best British male, battling it out with Professor Green, James Blake, James Morrison and Noel Gallagher.One Direction's debut track What Makes You Beautiful is favouite to win best single - voted for by listeners of Capital FM - over Adele's Someone Like You. Both Sheeran and Coldplay have backed Adele to win the best album prize with Chris Martin telling Radio 2: "Unless Adele somehow deletes her albums, I think we can come to the conclusion that [we won’t win]. I’m pretty sure of it." Modest Sheeran added: "To have the album nomination was the one that surprised me. I won't win it because Adele will win it."


    Florence and the Machine is set to perform her latest single No Light, No Light in an Alexander McQueen dress. James Corden, who will host the awards ceremony for the second year running, promised an 'incredible' show. He told Xfm: "The show is going to be incredible. Coldplay are opening, which will be huge. They have spent a fortune on pyrotechnics to make it something really special. Blur will perform for 11 minutes at the end of the show - more than anyone has been given before for the Outstanding Contribution To Music Award. Add Adele, Ed Sheeran and Noel Gallagher and you've got an incredible lineup."


    Emeli Sande has already been named the winner of the Critics' Choice and will pick up her gong tonight. The show will be broadcast live on ITV1 from 8pm.
