BBC unveiled their 15-strong list this morning for the Sound of 2011, compiled from the votes of more than 160 music industry experts.
Hotly tipped Jessie J was among those in the longlist, also including Clare Maguire, Anna Calvi, James Blake, Esben & The With, The Vaccines, Yuck, Warpaint, Nero, Daley and Wretch 32.
The qualifiers for the list must not have had a Top 20 UK single or album before November 14, 2010 and are also not already famous.
The top 5 artists in the list will be revealed from January 3, 2011. Previous list-toppers have included Little Boots, Corinne Bailey Rae, Keane and 50 Cent.
