So who’s going home with a Mercury?

We’ll find out on BBC2 in the UK from 10pm tonight with the highly annoying Lauren Laverne (or ‘1995’ as I like to call her). If you do a Google Image search for the awards, PJ Harvey seems to be the most googled artist today, but it’s anyone’s game.

UPDATE: PJ Harvey won.

This is written by Katy B, and it has a fresh UK urban sound to it that has a massive throwback to that garage sound that came out of London ten years ago. I call this the new Mis-Teeq. Check out here.

Little raw London talent for you tonight. Along the lines of Lily Allen, although I have to admit that aside from ‘Louder’ I don’t find the other songs on her Myspace very exciting. Check out here.
