The final shortlist for this year's BRIT Award Critics Choice has been unveiled.
The biggest music ceremony in the country, the BRIT Awards are almost upon us. A handful of trophies are handed out before the big day, most notably the Critics Choice award.
Designed to showcase new talent, previous winners include Adele, Florence & The Machine, Tom Odell and more. After much debate between industry insiders, the final shortlist is as follows:
Of course, Clash are big fans of all three artists. Sam Smith is a Next Wave favourite, while Chloe Howl's 'No Strings' remains a perennial spin. Ella Eyre recently collaborated with Rudimental, and Clash was lucky enough to premiere a remix of solo single 'Deeper'.
The winner of the BRIT Critics Choice award 2014 will be announced on December 12th.
So who do you think will win? Let us know on Twitter.
