'This is the perfect gig!': Michael Bublé set to replace Ant and Dec as the host of Brit Awards 2017
He is accustomed to life on the stage.
So it's fitting that Canadian crooner Michael Bublé is to shake up The Brit Awards by being drafted in to host the 2017 ceremony.
The singer, 41, has been signed to take over from Geordie presenting duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, who have hosted the awards evening for the last two years.

New role: Canadian crooner Michael Bublé is to shake up The Brit Awards by being drafted in to host the 2017 ceremony
Bublé told The Sun: 'It's a huge honour for me to host such a big night in music. Even though I didn't grow up as a Brit I've always been well aware of The Brit Awards and their impact globally.
'As a fan of music this is the perfect gig. I'm very much looking forward to February and celebrating the success stories of a great year in music.'
The awards, known as the biggest night of the UK music scene, usually take place in February and Bublé has been nominated for a gong at the ceremony three times before, but is yet to get a win.
British stars usually front the event, although in the past Kylie Minogue and Ru Paul have been among the presenters.
