Cowell's Haiti song to debut at BRITs
Simon Cowell's charity single will be performed at the BRITs.
The music mogul's all-star cover of REM's hit 'Everybody Hurts' - which is being released to raise funds for earthquake-stricken Haiti - will now take centre stage at the music awards 30th anniversary ceremony on February 16, after bosses reorganised the evening's line-up to clear a space for the song.
A source said: "A special production meeting was called to reconsider the running order to include the song. It's something that has never happened before. But the events in Haiti have made everybody sit up and take notice."
The news comes at the same time as Bon Jovi have confirmed they are adding their talents to the record.
The rock band - consisting of singer Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Richie Sambora, drummer Tico Torres, bassist Hugh McDonald and keyboardist David Bryan - will join some of the world's biggest stars to appear on the single.
The female line-up of performers for the song includes Mariah Carey, Kylie Minogue, Leona Lewis, Cheryl Cole, Alexandra Burke, Susan Boyle and Miley Cyrus.
The girls are joined on the track by Robbie Williams, Take That, Rod Stewart, James Blunt, James Morrison, Joe McElderry, Mika, Michael Buble and boy bands Westlife and JLS.
The song will be the first time 'Bodies' hitmaker Robbie has featured on the same record as his old band Take That since he left the group in 1995.
At the moment, it is unclear whether the musicians will all be present to perform together at the BRITs, or if a video will be aired instead.
The artists have been recording their parts at different venues around the world and their musical contributions are all being edited into one track.
The single is due for release on February 8.Posted on 27 Jan 2010 10:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
