So there we have it. A rightful winner as well- Sam Smith has won the BBC Sound of 2014 poll. And with that comes an unspoken guarantee of stardom (in the UK anyway).

This is the same poll that predicted the likes of Adele, Jessie J, Ellie Goulding and 50 Cent would take over the pop world.

BBC Sound of 2014 longlist released!

I wait all year to see this list get published. Only because it’s interesting to see how many people have already been featured on here.

The BBC Sound of 2014 is often a predictor of what music acts will launch big in over the next twelve months, and has featured the likes of Adele, Jessie J and 50 cent.

This year’s mix is a lot better than last year’s in my opinion, and is definitely more pop-orientated than previous ‘Sounds of’. Here’s the full list:

The top 5 will be revealed daily starting 6th January 6th 2014, with the winner crowned on the 10th. I’m not putting any guesses on who will win this time round though!
