Ellie Goulding has picked up the Brit Awards Critics Choice prize tipping her for big things in 2010.
The winner has been announced two months before the ceremony- with Delphic and Marina & The Diamonds named as runners up.
The previous two winners- Adele and Florence and The Machine- have both had massive success in their careers so far.
Last week MTV News spoke to Ellie who explained what her songs are like. She said: “I would say, essentially, my music is pop music.
“There’s a lot of things infused into it but if you were to go into every single thing that I was influenced by I think it would be a bit weird, a bit of a tongue twister so I’d just say it’s pop music.”
Asked what music inspired her to sing Goulding told us: “I had so many different influences going from Beyonce to Bjork.
“Growing up I would listen to a Beyonce record over and over again and I’d have to get every single note or I wasn’t happy.”
She continued: “That’s how I learnt to sing really. My mum thought my voice was a bit strange, and I think a lot of people did. They were like- ‘Don’t sing just stick to playing guitar’ but I just carried on and this is where I am now.”
Ellie, Marina and Delphic are all in MTV's 10 For 10. FIND OUT MORE HERE
