The singer made it to the final three, and fought off close competition from Joy Crookes and beabadoobee.

Celeste comments:

“It’s a huge honour to be the recipient of the BRITs Rising Star Award 2020. Like many others, I grew up watching the BRITs and have been continually inspired by its nominees, winners and the performances. I hope to make the most of this incredible opportunity and I can’t wait to perform on the BRITs next year.”

As a result, Celeste will perform at the BRIT Awards 2020 in London's O2 Arena on February 18th.
