The show will take place at London's O2 Arena on February 20, where the singer is nominated for 'British Female' and 'British Album' for her second set Fall to Grace.
"I'm not humble, I'm a realist. I don't expect to win anything," Faith told The Sun.
"But it's still cool. I think the Brits are steadily becoming a bit cooler. It doesn't seem like it's about manufactured pop any more, as it covers a wider spectrum of music."
She added: "There's Plan B making music with a message, Jake Bugg is in there, Richard Hawley. I love Damien Hirst and him doing the statue seems apt."

"I wasn't very happy with it, no - I want another go," she said. "It was all a bit of a whirlwind really - I mean, there was no rehearsal. I was very nervous, mainly because of the lack of preparation.
"Cee Lo ripped my dress, too. I'd love to perform again, but on one of my own songs. I actually pitched to do it - I wrote a whole thing of what I'd like to do and sent it to them."
