Anyone wanting to cast their vote is out of luck as voting closed on February 3, but fans can find out of Fender wins at the ceremony. It has been confirmed that he will be performing as part of the night too. It will be Fender’s first time performing at the Brits.

Fender is one of five artists nominated for the award with world superstars Coldplay, up-and-comers Glass Animals and indie mainstays Tom Grennan and Wolf Alice all up against the North Shields local.

He recently took to social media to encourage fans to vote for him and promised to turn the award into a bar pump for the Low Lights Tavern in North Shields if he wins.

The Best Rock/Alternative Act category was one of four categories open for public voting, with the Dance Act, Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act, Pop/R&B Act awards all being decided by social media users.
