Kanye West to replace Rihanna at BRIT Awards

Kanye West has been added to the list of performers at the BRIT Awards after Rihanna reportedly pulled out.

The pop star was said to have signed up to debut a new track at the prizegiving in London on Wednesday night (25Feb15), but a U.K. report suggests she pulled out of rehearsals on Monday (23Feb15) and axed her set.


West has since been added to the line-up to replace his FourFiveSeconds collaborator.


A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "Everything was prepared for Rihanna's performance but she was a no-show... (But) Kanye is just as big a star as Rihanna and is always good value at awards shows."
