BRIT Awards 2022: Doja Cat cancels performance due to COVID-19 issues

The US superstar was set to perform at next week's ceremony.

Doja Cat will no longer perform at the BRIT Awards 2022, following a raft of positive COVID-19 tests amongst her crew.

The multi-hyphenate star was set to take to the stage of the O2 Arena next Tuesday (February 8) alongside other announced performers such as Sam Fender, Holly Humberstone and Dave.

Doja made the announcement on her social media this morning, saying that she had been in rehearsals for the BRITs "for weeks."

"Despite taking the utmost caution, numerous members of my crew (both on and off stage) have tested positive for COVID. It's simply not safe for us to continue to rehearse together and put each other in harm's way."
