Tom Odell wins 2013 Critics’ Choice Award

Do we know how to pick 'em or what! Tom Odell, one of The Music Fix's Top Tips of 2013, has won the prestigious Critics’ Choice Award, with AlunaGeorge and Laura Mvula as runners up.

On winning the Critics’ Choice Award, Tom said:

“I’m thrilled and honoured to win the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award. I genuinely can’t believe it. Thank you so much. Looking at the list of amazing female artists who have won the Award already, I just hope I don’t let the boys down!”

The Critics’ Choice Award is for British acts tipped by critics for mainstream success in the forthcoming year who are yet to release their debut album. In previous years it has been awarded to Emeli Sande (2012), Jessie J (2011), Ellie Goulding (2010), Florence and the Machine (2009) and Adele (2008). The winner is chosen by a team of experts including the music editors of national newspapers, key music and lifestyle magazines, music websites and the heads of music at major radio and music TV stations.
