Justin Timberlake has been announced as the latest act to perform at the ceremony alongside One Direction and Beyonce.

The Sun reports that the 32-year-old singer has been added to the roster when the awards hit London on February 20.

A source told The Sun: "Justin will christen his comeback with a performance at the BRITs. Talks between the organisers, his label and management have been ongoing since the start of the year.

"Justin's team have been plotting his return carefully. He loves the UK and wants to announce his comeback with a top set.

"Brits bosses know that his performance, as well as Beyonce's, will bring a huge TV audience."

Justin Timberlake made a return to music earlier this year with comeback track ‘Suit & Tie’ following a seven year hiatus from music.

The last time Justin performed at the awards was away back in 20003 where he and Kylie Minogue sang Blondie hit ‘Rapture’.

The performance caused quite a stir after Justin famously groped Kylie’s bum, leaving many viewers feeling hot under the collar.

However, there will probably a lot less bottom pinching from Justin this time around as he is rumoured to be performing with Jay-Z who features on 'Suit & Tie'.

Justin Timberlake is also billed to perform at this year’s Grammy awards on February 10.
