Watch: Interviews with the Critics' Choice Award nominees


Fresh from the news that Tom Odell has won this year's BRIT Awards with Mastercard Critcs' Choice Award we're taking a look back at our interviews with all of 2013's nominees. 

The Critics’ Choice Award is for new British acts tipped by critics for mainstream success in the forthcoming year. In previous years it has been awarded to Adele (2008), Florence and the Machine (2009), Ellie Goulding (2010) and Jessie J (2011).

2012’s winner Emeli Sand√© has had a fantastic year. The Scottish singer/songwriter’s debut album ‘Our Version of Events’ scored a Number One in the Official British Chart; she has also had Number One singles with Professor Green and Labrinth. Emeli performed at both the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympic Games this summer.

Below, you'll find our chats with Tom Odell, Laura Mvula and AlunaGeorge who offer their insights into being nominated and how they each began their musical journeys. 





The BRIT Awards 2013 with Mastercard take place on Wednesday 20th February 2013 at The O2 Arena, London.
