No word on what she'll sing this time but it's likely to be a hit from her latest number one album 1989.

Ed Sheeran was among the artists to take to the stage at last week's BBC Music Awards, collecting the British artist of the year prize and he is tipped for further glory at the Brits on 25 February.
