It received excellent viewing and voting figures and saw One Direction receive their first ever award. We are excited to see what other fresh new talent 4Music can honour with a gong.”

“2012 has been all about the new talent with the likes of Conor Maynard’s number one debut album and Emili Sande bursting onto the global music stage at the Olympics. It’s also been a successful year for the girls; Cheryl made a comeback, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj dominated the charts. This year’s awards are set to be the toughest yet.”
