One Direction, Mumford & Sons to Perform at BBC Music Awards

One Direction, Mumford & Sons and Ellie Goulding will be performing at the BBC Music Awards this December, it was announced Wednesday.

Also slated for the awards show are performances from Hozier, Jess Glynne, Little Mix and OMI, with additional musicians to be announced closer to the show.

Now in its second year, the awards will be held in Birmingham, England at Genting Arena on Dec. 10. BBC radio personalities Chris Evans and Fearne Cotton will host the event.

Five awards will be distributed at the event, including: British Artist of the Year, International Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist and Live Performance of the Year.

Last year’s ceremony, the inaugural event, was a performance-heavy event, featuring cuts by One Direction, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Calvin Harris, Clean Bandit, Ella Henderson and many more. Gwen Stefani, Idris Elba and Tom Jones were also on hand to dole out the trophies. Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” took home prizes for Song of the Year and Best International Artist.

More than 10,000 tickets will be available to the public. Those who can’t attend the show will be able to watch from home, as BBC will broadcast the event that same evening. The performances will also be broadcast on BBC radio stations.
