Hugh led the red carpet tonight (Picture: Rex Features)Hugh Jackman will be opening the Brit Awards 2019 tonight so it makes perfect sense that he led celebrities on the red carpet ahead of the star-studded awards ceremony.
Arriving at London’s O2 Arena on Wednesday, Hugh, 51, looked extremely dapper in a black suit and matching tie for his first ever appearance at the music event.
The spotlight will well and truly be on the Australian actor later tonight as he opens the awards ceremony with a performance from his critically-acclaimed movie, The Greatest Showman.
Previously confirming his performance, Hugh tweeted earlier this month: ‘Why don’t we work on The Greatest Show for no reason?’
We are ready.

Tom Walker couldn’t leave his trademark beanie hat at home (Picture: Backgrid)Also arriving on the red carpet in a good timely fashion was singer Tom Walker, who teamed a smart suit with his trademark beanie hat. The popstar is hoping to bag the coveted best British single for his debut single Leave A Light On, while he’s also nominated for British breakthrough act.
Rock band Idles huddled together for red carpet photos, just hours after they said awkwardly said winning a Brit Award would be meaningless.
Speaking to BBC’s Newsbeat about their British breakthrough nomination, Idles singer Joe Talbot said: ‘It makes sense in one way because we were number five in the album chart. On the other side it doesn’t feel right. Compared to the sales and money behind many pop acts… we’re a drop in the ocean.

Marvin Humes opted for a more casual look (Picture: Rex Features)‘‘For our hard work to be appreciated feels great. But we’re not better than anyone else and we don’t think that.’
He added: ‘We’re not going to turn it down but it’s not on our radar. We’d be the same band before or after a Brit Award, it’s meaningless.’
Amongst the other celebrity arrivals were James Bay, Steve Aoki and Michelle Keegan.
