"This really is the biggest festival in the world and I cannot wait to perform."
It has also been rumoured today she will be joined onstage by Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, his wife Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Jay-Z.
Also appearing on the Pyramid stage over the weekend are Morrissey, Elbow, Biffy Clyro, Wu Tang Clan, Two Door Cinema Club, Paolo Nutini, Tinie Tempah and Plan B among many other acts.
