BRITs Critics’ Choice winner Jack Garratt has been named the popstar most likely to succeed this year in the BBC Sound Of 2016 poll. That’s what changing your sound and growing a big beard can do for you, kids. 2016 is the year of beards in pop.

Says Garratt: “Winning the BBC Music Sound Of 2016 poll has left me feeling pretty stunned at the end of one of the most emotionally and physically intense years of my life. I cannot thank the BBC enough for their continued support, and everyone who voted for me. Every other name on the list is unbelievably talented, and I hope this year will be a great one for all of us”.

4. Blossoms
