Sigrid for Number 1, then?
The BBC Sound of 2018 list is counting down all this week, whittling their list of 15 newcomers down to just five top spots.

Earlier this week it was announced that Dork cover stars Pale Waves (order your copy of the issue below) have come in at Number 5, followed by Khalid at Number 4 and IAMDDB at Number 3.

Today we have Number 2 – Rex Orange County.

Remaining nominees in with a chance of getting the top spot include ALMA, Sigrid, Billie Eilish, Jade Bird, Lewis Capaldi, Nilüfer Yanya, Not3s, Sam Fender, Tom Walker, Yaeji and Yxng Bane.

Voted for by a panel of music industry “experts”, previous winners include the likes of Adele, Haim, Sam Smith and Years & Years… as well as Mika, The Bravery, Keane and Corinne Bailey Rae.
