Christmas will be here before you know it, and then it’s straight into awards season. And we have already been given the nominations for the Brits Rising Star Award ahead of the Brit Awards 2023. The award, formerly known as the Critics’ Choice, has set the bar for successful future stars of UK music so reaching the shortlist alone is a huge deal. R&B girl group FLO, Cat Burns, and Nia Archives have all made the cut and we already can’t call which will take take it home.
Previous winners have included some little-known names who have not done too badly since bagging the award. You might have heard of Adele? Or perhaps you’ve listened to the odd Sam Smith track? Jorja Smith ring any bells? You get the idea. This year’s winner was Holly Humbertsone, with Griff taking the crown in 2021. The winner for 2023 will be announced on 8 Dec.
The Brit Awards 2023 is already set to make history. Taking place on Saturday, 11 Feb., it will be the first time the event has taken place on a Saturday. Read on to watch the videos of these three incredible artists and decide who you would give the Brits Rising Star Award to.
