This year’s BRIT Awards ceremony will be live-streamed via YouTube, worldwide, for the first time in 34 years.

The Award show, which is sponsored by MasterCard, will take place at the O2 Arena on Wednesday, 19 February with artists such as  Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Rudimental, and Pharrell Williams set to perform.

There will also be a social vote award for British video, the first of its kind, where viewers around the world will be able to vote via Twitter during the broadcast and the award will be announced at the end of the show.

In 2013, 8.1 million people tuned into ITV to watch the show live and on catch-up TV. And this year, BRITs chairman Christian Tattersfield is aiming for 10 million.
