Sam Smith rose to fame last year with his featured vocals on Disclosure’s house track, Latch. And Jacob Banks, Wretch 32’s protegé has also gained recognition since the release of his free online EP The Monologue and his song Dear Simone receiving airplay on BBC 1Xtra.

It is a very big honour for both artists who are newcomers on the scene to perform for someone as established and as popular as Emeli Sande.

I predict big things for the both of them in 2013.
