The artists were announced as the latest performers to be added to an already star-studded lineup via social media earlier this week. According to The Sun, the DJ will lead the four-piece production and later be joined by his fellow co-stars, who have each collaborated on records with Harris in the past.
"We have genuinely been trying to persuade Calvin to perform at the Brits for the past decade," a Brit source told the publication. "He has had such a massive international career and is one of the most successful British artists of the 21st century."
Most recently, Rag and the Scottish producer teamed up for a soulful number called "Giant," released earlier this month. Last year, Harris tapped Smith to hop on the pop-heavy house jam "Promises." And in 2017, Dua and the hitmaker topped charts together with their Song of Summer smash "One Kiss."
No word has been given on what they'll perform, but "Whatever happens, it is sure to be one of the most memorable performances of the evening," said the source.
Smith, Dua and Harris are among this year's nominees, with the former up for Best British Male Solo and the songbird receiving two nods for Best British Artist Video of the Year — one with Harris for "One Kiss" and for her own smash "IDGAF."
The 39th annual Brit Awards will air from The O2 Arena in London on February 20.
