There a #BRIT buzz around Twitter today...

#BRITs is trending across Twitter as we write, you're excited, we're excited, but first and foremost the performers and nominees are ecstatic. Read what they've had to say...


@rihanna tweeted about the BRITS on Sunday before her birthday yesterday:

"Brit rehearsal went smoove! Next stop, set up studio in a hotel room! I'll be turning 24 making mu$ic!!!"

@coldplay posted a photo of the O2 as they arrived this morning:

"Good morning The O2. Nice day for a Brits."

@BrunoMars tweeted as he arrived in the capital:

"WADUP LONDON!! #FancySeeingYouAgain"

Then added today:

"I LOVE LONDON" - we love you too Bruno!

@flo_tweet (Florence + The Machine) talks about persuading her band to dance at the Awards:

"Hey @BRIT_Awards Super excited for tmrw, rehearsals going really well! Haven't persuaded the band to do a dance routine yet, working on it!"

@edsheeran is probably the most vocal star so far on Twitter today - he is up for four Awards though:

"Feels like I'm waking up to take a big exam today"

"Starting the surreal ness of today off in true fashion, my brother woke me up with a jar of pickles, why not eh?"

"Awards or no awards, I've had a brilliant year, thank you too all family, friends, radio dj's, media and every single fan who has supported!"

"Let's go get 'em"

"Good luck to everyone else nominated, it's a fantastic time for British music at the moment"

@ollyofficial posted after his rehearsal yesterday, then retweeted a fans post today - he's buzzing:

"Just finished BRITS rehearsals!! I'm very more ones than one ; ) x its #pucka"

"Thanks D!! Buzzing mate!! RT @DonavanHepburn: Big shout out to @ollyofficial have a good one tonight on #thebrits"

@RizzleKicks' tweet was retweeted by fellow performer Olly Murs:

"Ummm @JKCorden @CHRISDJMOYLES true lad @ollyofficial @ChrisMoylesShow #shabbatronic?"

@jlsofficial talked about the BRITS and poor Aston didn't sleep:

"Morning.. So today's the day!! N yep.. Your right.. I haven't slept! Ax."

"Morning JLSters! It's BRITS day!!! Yeh man!! I'm on Radio 5 Live in about 15 mins! Have a listen if u can.. HUGE day today! Marv x #Proud"

@pixiesongs asks everyone to tune in:

"@Brit_Awards tonight! Who are you looking forward to seeing perform? Tune in! Good luck to everyone nominated xx"

@example is philosophical about winning:

"Regardless of who wins at the Brits just remember the most important thing is a loyal fanbase. Awards are there to make the mums proud"

@professorgreen generously wishes the competition luck:

"Best of luck to everybody at the #britawards tonight, looking forward to seeing everyone!"

@jessiejofficial is in the mood to celebrate:

"Its the @BRIT_Awards today!!! Woah what a year I'm going to celebrate tonight! :D"

She adds:

"Pancake Day!!!"

@onedirection also refer to Shrove Tuesday:


"Goodmorning! big big day today! Sooo nervous but excited,thank you all who have voted for us,"


"Question is.... Are they gonna serve pancakes at the Brits ??"


"Thank you everyone who has voted for the Brits! Voting is now closed... Oooooohhhhh..."

All of them decide to add a BRIT fact:

"The Brit Awards started in 1977"


@emelisande is obviously taking her parents:

"Just got back from Paris! Time to pick up the folks for the Brits tomorrow :)"
