Three new acts are being tipped for success in 2015 after being shortlisted for the Brits Critics' Choice Award.

George The Poet, James Bay and three-piece group Years and Years will battle for the honour.

The winner will be announced on 4 December and will receive their trophy, designed by Tracey Emin, at the main Brit awards ceremony on 25 February.

Previous Critics' Choice winners include Emeli Sande, Jessie J and Adele, who won the first award in 2008.

"I still can't believe it. As much as I hoped, being nominated for the Brits Critics' Choice Award is not something I ever imagined would actually happen. What a huge honour," 24-year-old Bay said.

The singer-songwriter has been supporting acts including 2013 winner Tom Odell and John Newman.

George The Poet, 23, said: "I feel privileged to have been shortlisted for the Brits Critics' Choice Award. I always dreamed of reaching people and this nomination shows me that I'm on track."

The act has already featured on records by Labrinth, Sande, Paolo Nutini and Naughty Boy.

London trio Years and Years added: "We're so grateful to be making music and having this sort of recognition is crazy and ridiculous and nuts in a really good way."

The group released their debut single Real earlier this year and have toured with Clean Bandit and Sam Smith.

Three quite inspired choices there, between James Bay & Years & Years I think, the latter seem like a promising group based on what I have heard so far.

James Bay seems the most likely to win from these 3, gives me Tom Odell vibes.

Would love it if Years & Years won though obviously wub.gif

I was really hoping Years & Years would get it, but knew they wouldn't.

I like 'Hold Back The River' though, so hopefully the rest of his stuff matches up to that.

Exactly the same. I am really gunning for Years&Years to be a surprise BBC Sound Of winner now.

Boring.

Are they too scared of giving it to a group of something? Why has it always got to be solo artists?

James Bay is ok, I prefer him to George The Poet but Years & Years are by FAR better! They passed me by a bit until the Sound Of hype but they're great.

Dead and buried after Emeli Sande won after scoring a no.2 solo single? Or was that rule for Sound Of?

That only applies to BBC's Sound of... I think, as Emeli Sande and Sam Smith have won this before.

Good winner from what I've heard, but kinda safe with another male/female solo artist that will undoubtedly have some form of success next year. Wish they'd go with something a bit different.

Yeah it only applies to Sound Of, and I presume James' top 20 came a bit too late to get him excluded from that list this year kink.gif
