Doja Cat pulls out of BRIT Awards performance E! News UK
Doja Cat has pulled out of her performance at the BRIT Awards due to cases of Covid-19 among her crew.
The Kiss Me More singer was due to take the stage at London’s O2 Arena on February 8 alongside Ed Sheeran, Little Simz, Liam Gallagher, Dave and BRIT Rising Star winner Holly Humberstone.
However, on Monday, she announced that several positive Covid-19 results within her team have prevented them from repeating.
“Unfortunately due to Covid cases within my crew, I will no longer be performing at the BRITs,” she announced on Twitter. “My team and I have been in rehearsal for weeks and despite the utmost caution, many members of my team (on and off stage) have tested positive for Covid.
“It’s just not safe for us to keep rehearsing together and putting each other at risk. I look forward to playing for my UK fans as soon as possible. Take care.”
Awards show reps retweeted the Say So star’s post but have yet to reveal his replacement.
It is unclear whether Doja will still attend the ceremony, as she is nominated for International Artist of the Year and International Song of the Year for Kiss Me More.
The 2022 BRIT Awards will be hosted by Mo Gilligan, with red carpet reporting from Clara Amfo and Maya Jama.
