    True - I've listened to 4 hours of it this week however from driving someone elses car to work on site - there was some mad sounding Swedish girl who they said had an Ethiopian dad, is that her?

    But yes, I can whole-heartedly support this campaign!

    The girl's got a great singing voice, sure, but her songs are dreary beyond belief.

    Agreed. She a good artist but all of her songs sound the same !! and for what ever reason, the UK media can't get enough of her. I've actually seem her perform live at the O2, she was supporting Coldplay (who the wife & I went to see) back in 2011. Wasn't my cup of tea then and clearly not now ;)

    Mind you, I'd take any of her stuff any day over Train and that horrendous "Drive By".

    I don't listen to music radio but I have noticed this one on TV a lot. I keep getting told off for asking "is that that Emily Sunday again".

    I know a Smeli Andi and he can't sing either. But I've never seen him sober, so that might not be the case.

    Radio fatigue is a curse for the biggest commercial success stories but will say the Live at the Royal Albert Hall CD is very good and offers something different to the familiar studio recordings. The guest stars spoil it however as they are not nearly as vocally competent

    Vocally competent or not I was at the show and when Professor Green came on the place erupted!
    Few people were on their feet before then but suddenly everyone was up.

    I've the DVD and they've removed all sense of it, I guess they didn't want to give the impression she was upstaged! Upstaged is probably too strong a word for the reality though.

    Managed to get some tickets for V festival earlier and she's going to be there too :) can't believe people haven't heard of her as although she is awesome and I'm more than happy to see/hear her she has been on quite a bit of stuff the last few months.

    Personally, I think both she and Adele are massively overrated.

    I am being serious, she is amazing! Not quite as good as Adele or Paloma Faith, but still great!

    Is she another one of those singing minstrels that have a weird haircut just to make them appear interesting/cutting edge/have a personality or soul ?
    :D
