Cee Lo Green looking for beautiful stranger

Cee Lo Green is planning to "spend the night with some beautiful stranger" after the BRIT Awards.

The 'F**k You' hitmaker is nominated for Best International Male and will also sing solo for the first time at the annual awards tonight and says he's hoping his performance will catch the eyes of a single lady.

He told The Sun newspaper: "These BRITs are going to be a first for me so I'm really excited, but I may just have enough energy left to spend the night with a beautiful stranger - the big man will definitely be in the place."

Meanwhile 'Pass Out' rapper Tinie Tempah - who is up for four awards, including British Male and Best British Single - is planning to pull out all of the stops for his performance during the show.

He said: "This is something I've dreamt about for a very, very long time so I've got to make it special.

"I've been agonising over it. I've been looking up old videos and all sorts. But that's dangerous as it makes you worry even more."

Both Cee Lo and Tinie will find out if they have won when The BRIT Awards are held tonight at London's The O2 venue.
