Here's the list!

Alfie Templeman
Berwyn
Bree Runway
Dutchavelli
Girl In Red
Greentea Peng
Griff
Holly Humberstone
Pa Salieu
The Lathums

I reckon Alfie's got this with his TOTP slot, Dutchavelli seems a strange choice as he's done well already - and has had numerous allegations on twitter recently.

My choice would be The Lathums though! They could get a #1 with their debut album on a quieter week next year.

Alfie's the one I know best from that list and I've liked a lot of what I've heard from him so I'm rooting for him.

My guess would be Bree Runway and girl in red are the two front-runners. They seem like the biggest names so far and R1 has supported both. I reckon Alfie Templemen and Dutchavelli will be top 5 too.

rooting for Girl in Red
also like Holly Humberstone but she's too low key to win this

Dutchavelli sounds like an odd inclusion, he's got a bunch of hits already, even a top 10 album

Dua Lipa, Mabel, Lewis Capaldi, Billie Eilish, Tom Walker, Dermot Kennedy.. all longlisted in recent years and none made the top 5. And all more successful than any recent winners.

Yeah it doesn't have much influence really other than some press for a month laugh.gif

Bet they wish Octavian didn't get it in 2019 now!

Dutchavelli is I think the only one I've not heard anything by.

Rooting for Berwyn tbh, Glory is exceptional and his performance of on Jools was incredible heart.gif

Bree Runway has been around for a while now, she definitely deserves mainstream success! 'Little Nokia' is my fave of hers

Definitely curious timing for them to put Dutchavelli on this list, I assume it must have been finalised at least a few weeks ago...

Hoping for Alfie to win here but it is a pretty decent list overall I think - I'm yet to hear a song that I really love from any of the others (well, apart from Dutchavelli, but I'm not gonna be rooting for him here for various reasons lol) but I'd say most of them have the potential to deliver stuff I can get into more next year, particularly BERWYN, Bree Runway and Pa Salieu (and maybe girl in red, I wasn't a fan at all of the first few songs I heard from her but she's markedly improved already with her last couple of releases). The only act on there that I've heard nothing from is The Lathums.

Always find this list quite stale nowadays. Lots of the artists are fairly well known!

The point of the list isn't to be a bunch of artists that no one has heard of, it's artists who are already rising and have the potential to make a bigger breakthrough within the year. I'd say the only name that doesn't fit that description this year is Dutchavelli.

It basically leads to radio 1 A Listing some of them throughout the year!

It's Griff or Holly for me. Seems like a very "short" longlist this year
