Justin Timberlake has reportedly signed up to perform at the Brits.

The singer and actor, who recently returned to the music scene after some time out to focus on his film career, will continue on the comeback trail by taking to the stage at London's O2 Arena on February 20, reports The Sun.

A source said: "Justin will christen his comeback with a performance at the Brits. Talks between 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."

Justin, 32 - who released the single Suit And Tie, which features rap star Jay-Z, to mark his comeback last month - is following in the footsteps of fellow chart star Beyonce, who is also said to be set to sing at the Brits.

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