The longlist for the BBC Sound of 2020 has been revealed! And I think it's their best one in years.

Arlo Parks
Beabadoobee
Celeste
Easy Life
Georgia
Inhaler
Joesef
Joy Crookes
Squid
Yungblud

Would love to see Bea, Easy Life, Inhaler, Squid or Yungblud take it.

Ouch horrible list
Really like Georgia, but she's been going on for ages

I feel pretty lukewarm on this list, beabadoobee would probably be my pick from the bunch in terms of being consistently good I guess, Georgia also has potential but 'Never Let You Go' is the only song I've really loved from her. Also like what I have heard from Easy Life and Squid.

Unfortunately think it'll almost certainly be YUNGBLUD winning. Maybe Celeste has a chance too based on her winning the BRITs Rising Star.

I think Easy Life are also some what known now! My friends certainly know who they are anyway, probably more than Celeste.

The people on these lists aren't really supposed to be well-known lol ~

I think I've heard at least one song by all of these except Inhaler and Joesef.

Inhaler are worth a listen, my fave song is Ice Cream Sundae. The lead singer is the son of Bono.

I'm not a fan of U2 at all, but it didn't stop me giving them a listen. There's still 3 other members not related to him tongue.gif

I know but Georgia and Yungblud especially have been heavily played by Radio 1 this year. That's normal though!

They're on the B-List right now with 'Nice Guys' tongue.gif they've had 2 songs playlisted by R1 this year, both of them were pretty good.

I know and like most of this list, which makes a change. Easy Life they recently sold out a tour playing about a dozen 1.5-2.5k venues and have a song with 12m Spotify streams, that feels pretty big for something like this.

I'd love it if Georgia has some success next year heart.gif

I wonder if these acts will be as bland as their stage names suggest?
