The awards show is taking place Wednesday at the O2 Arena in London.

For anyone who may be unfamiliar with the Brit Awards, they are the British equivalent of the Grammys.

This year's show is hosted by Ant & Dec (Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly), an English comedy duo. Madonna, Ed Sheeran, George Ezra and Taylor Swift, among others, are set to preform at London's O2 arena.


Sam Smith — who won best new artist and song of the year, among other awards, at this year's Grammys — leads the pack with five Brit nominations, while Sheeran is close behind with four. FKA Twigs, Lily Allen, Coldplay, One Direction and Alt J are among the other nominees.

Watch the live stream of Brit Awards below starting at noon PT on Wednesday. The show also will air at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on the Fuse Network in the U.S.
