Arctic Monkeys have agreed to headline The Brit Awards 2014.
The 'Do I Wanna Know' singers have ended their mockery of the iconic music awards show by agreeing to open the proceedings with a live performance next February, following years of snubbing the ceremony.

Brits chairman, Christian Tattersfield said: ''It took a lot of wining and dining on behalf of the Brits but it was my absolute priority to get Arctic Monkeys to perform. It has been their year. It helps that the Brit Awards is now seen as a credible event and is no longer the shambles it was four or five years ago.''
