Dizzee Rascal's Brit Shower
Dizzee Rascal and Florence and the Machine will shower the BRITs audience with ''money'' - printed with their faces - tomorrow (16.02.10).
Dizzee Rascal will shower the BRITs audience with "money" tomorrow (16.02.10).
The rapper will perform with Florence and the Machine on a special version of his song 'Dirty Cash', which will segue into Florence's cover of 'You Got the Love' by Candi Staton, and the climax of the track will see them release banknotes with their faces printed on them over the audience.
The pair's version of the song - dubbed 'You've Got The Dirty Love' - will then be available for download after the show.
Despite promising a spectacular performance, Dizzee said he is not usually a fan of putting on over-the-top stage shows.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I've no plan for one of those Shakespearian massive performances. It won't be one of those Robin Hood things with lots of twirling - unless I'm drunk!
"But we do have a few tricks. One involves money, which we will shower over the audience."
Florence and the Machine singer Florence Welch added that they have had to pull together to create their performance quickly.
She added: "We've only had three days of rehearsals but I'd have been happy to wing it."
Dizzee added that the performer he's most looking forward to watching at the show tomorrow - which will see Robbie Williams, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys take to the stage, among others - is 'Poker Face' singer Lady Gaga.
He said: "She's amazing at what she does and always make me gasp - the number of times I've said, 'f***ing hell' when I see her on TV. That's what we hope to do with our performance.
"I haven't seen no-one like her since Madonna. She wears things I couldn't dream up. It's going to be mad."
Dizzee is nominated for two gongs at the BRIT awards - which take place at London's Earl's Court tomorrow - British Male Solo Artist and British Album, while Florence is nominated for British Female Solo Artist, British Breakthrough Act and British Album.
