US superstar Taylor Swift is the latest addition to the list of acts due to perform at the BRIT Awards on February 20th.

Swift, 23, earned an estimated $57m (£36m) in 2012 and has sold 26 million albums worldwide.

She'll come face to face with former love interest Harry Styles, whose band One Direction are also on the bill for the ceremony.

Robbie Williams, Muse, Ben Howard, Mumford & Sons, Emeli Sande and Justin Timberlake will also perform at the event, which is to be broadcast live on ITV.

Harry Styles and Taylor Swift 'split'

According to reports One Direction's Harry Styles and US country music singer Taylor Swift have split following a bust-up in the Caribbean.

The stars, who have been together since November, were spending time together on the island of Virgin Gorda, where they were seen happily posing for pictures with fans.

But the romantic holiday is reported to have lasted only a few days, before Swift caught the first flight back home to the US after a row with the teen heartthrob.

She suggested that all might not be well in her relationship with Styles when she posted the lyric "'Til you put me down", a line from her song I Knew You Were Trouble, on Twitter on Sunday.

She and Styles had spent Christmas apart before the One Direction singer flew out to the US to spend New Years with Swift.

They enjoyed New Year's Eve together in New York, where Swift was performing, and were pictured kissing in Times Square.

A spokesman for Styles would not comment on the reports of split.
