MTV announces list of Brand New artists to watch for 2016

MTV top 10

MTV has named the top 10 artists it thinks will have an impact in 2016.

The public will get to vote on who they think is the one to watch for next year.

Selected by MTV officials, key music-influencers and industry representatives, they say their shortlist includes some of the most exciting new UK music talent for 2016.

The results will be unveiled in February.

Jack Garratt, who is also shortlisted for the Brits Critics Choice Award, has also been nominated in the top ten for MTV’s annual poll.

The list also sees Blossoms, Ratboy, Nimmo, Bonkas, Rationale, SG Lewis, WSTRN and Ann-Marie nominated.

DJ Sigala, who already has a number one single under his belt with his track Easy Love, completes the list.

Last year, MOBO nominated act Krept and Konan were named winners.

All of the 2016 nominations will be introduced at a special event next week which will be hosted by Ella Eyre.

Earlier this week, the Brits Critics’ Choice award nominees included Frances and Izzy Bizzu as well as Jack Garratt.

The Brits Critics’ Choice Award is decided by a group of music experts from newspapers, magazines and music websites along with important types from radio and music TV stations.

Jack is also set to perform at the BBC Music awards as the BBC’s Introducing Artist of the Year.

He follows on from Catfish and the Bottlemen who won the accolade last year.
