BRITS to go live on YouTube

This year's BRIT Awards ceremony is to be broadcast live worldwide via YouTube for the first time on the BRITs YouTube channel. Viewers globally will also be able to influence the new Best British Video Award. A shortlist for that will be announced - with votes accepted via Twitter during the broadcast and the winner announced towards the end. The awards can be seen live on terrestrial TV  - ITV - in the UK - where the stream will not be active. Acts including Arctic Monkeys, Pharrell Williams Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Bastille, Rudimental, Ellie Goulding, Lorde and Disclosure are on the bill for the event, which will take place on 19 February, hosted by James Cordon for the fifth and final time this year at London's O2 Arena. Disclosure and Bastille lead the nominations for this year's awards, having both been named in four categories each.
