Singing sensation Beyonce Knowles is testing the nerves of organisers of tonight's (17FEB04) BRIT AWARDS - by flying in a day behind schedule.

The 22-year-old was due to arrive in the capital yesterday (16FEB04), but delayed her arrival after performing at a basketball game in Los Angeles.

Now Beyonce, who is set to perform Crazy In Love at the bash, will only be able to run through her routine once in rehearsals.

An insider says, "She'll only have the chance to practise her show once before the big event. She is a really good performer so hopefully it won't be too much of a problem.

"We have done everything possible to get her here on time and we are just relieved that she will be at the show."
