BBC Sound Of 2010


As somebody who really does believe that the cultural landscape would be a lesser place in this country without the BBC , I was delighted to be asked to join the panel of “taste-makers”  to help predict “The BBC  Sound Of 2010”.

The BBC Sound of 2010 list aims to highlight the best new music.

The acts on the list were chosen by 165 UK-based taste-makers, who each named their favourite three new artists, and the 15 acts with the most votes are on the long-list.

The top five will be ranked and revealed in reverse order in the week commencing 4 January 2010, with one act named each day until the winner is unveiled on 8 January.

Each act from the top five will be featured on the BBC News website entertainment section. BBC 6 Music will also feature the top five artists with live sessions and interviews on Lauren Laverne’s show.

The BBC’s Sound of… list is now in its eighth year. The previous winners are: Little Boots (Sound of 2009), Adele (Sound of 2008), Mika (Sound of 2007), Corinne Bailey Rae (Sound of 2006), The Bravery (Sound of 2005), Keane (Sound of 2004) and 50 Cent (Sound of 2003).

Other artists in the top five in previous years include Florence and the Machine and La Roux (Sound of 2009), Duffy and the Ting Tings (Sound of 2008), Klaxons (Sound of 2007).

Nice to see that one of our very favourite new artsits , Marina And The Diamonds in the long list !

    So are you gonna reveal who all of your nominations were ? Did any of the others besides Marina get on the list ? 2 out of my 3 did !

      Well Marina was first choice and the only one who made it for me! … there were a couple of surprises in there I thought
      Go on tell yours first 😉

      What album did you nom as deserving to be wildly heard by a bigger audience?

    This is a really exiciting deal! I look forward to hearing and seeing the lists.

    Well done Pip, no suprise you voted for Marina. She’d be my choice too, I much prefer her to Ellie Goulding who in my view lacks originality I really dont like Ellies song under the sheets. Ladyhwke mark 2 ?
