At tonight's BBC Music Awards, Jack Garratt will be presented as the winner of the Introducing award. Possibly the most materially interesting part of the back-slapping event.

As the countdown commences this week, worth noting that The Box: Upfront have their own little list of recommendations for the year:

Tiggs Da Author
Troye Sivan
Anne-Marie
Nick Brewer
Creeper
Zara Larsson
Wstrn
Grace


As most of these have already had a hit record, it seems less than daring to suggest they will have more, really.

As we're now over the half-way stage, it seems Alessia Cara has had the most success, and even that isn't too much. Dua Lipa, from the longlist, has had some good songs.

Anne-Marie has scored her first UK #1, albeit as an adjunct to the tiresome Clean Bandit, and in tandem with the unlikeable Sean Paul.
