Justin Timberlake will make his live UK comeback at this year's BRIT Awards, it has been confirmed, performing new single 'Suit & Tie' at the award ceremony on 20 February, 2013.

Rumours have been confirmed by the show's organisers, and Timberlake will be joining Robbie Williams, Muse, Ben Howard, One Direction, Mumford & Sons and Emeli Sandé to perform on the night.

"Justin is an exceptional artist with global appeal and unrivalled successes," say BRITs Chairman David Joseph. "We are thrilled to add him to a stellar line-up that will celebrate an amazing year of music and make this one of the strongest BRIT live shows to date."

Timberlake returned to the music spotlight in 2013 when he released his long awaited comeback track, 'Suit & Tie', a collaboraton with Jay-Z, produced by Timbaland.

He will perform the track live at the 20 February ceremony, which will be broadcast live on ITV.
