Beyoncé is one of the most widely recognized and highly respected women in pop culture. A solo recording artist, actress, philanthropist and businesswoman, she has released four #1 solo albums and has sold over 75 million albums worldwide. Her work has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including 16 Grammy Awards. Billboard named her the Top Female Artist and Top Radio Songs Artist of the 2000s decade. The Recording Industry Association of America also recognized Beyoncé as the Top Certified Artist of the 2000s.

As her debut album, Lights, made so thrillingly clear, Ellie Goulding uses her voice as a texture in much the same way that a skilled instrumentalist would. It is a sound – in Ellie's case, an utterly distinctive and unforgettable one – that can play as important a role in her songs as any other musical detail.
The BRIT-winning singer/songwriter released Lights in 2010 and followed it up with Halcyon in 2012. Both albums peaked at number one in the UK album chart and went double-platinum. Halcyon was re-released with ten additional tracks as Halcyon Days in 2013. These included How Long Will I Love You?, which became the BBC Children in Need single, and her first number one single, Burn, which has since racked up nearly 160 million views on YouTube.

Florence and The Machine is a one-woman force of bluesy rock with her roots in the same ground as Scout Niblett and PJ Harvey. The music of Florence Welch, sounds rough and ragged, likened to American pre-war folk and blues. Florence's award-winning debut album, 'Lungs', was one of the best selling albums of 2009 and 2010, staying in the UK Top 40 for sixty-five consecutive weeks. The second album, Ceremonials became their second successive No. 1 after debuting at the top of the UK chart.

Topping the BBC's 'Sound of 2013' new music list, Haim hail from California and consist of three sisters (Este, Alana and Danielle Haim). They pride themselves on being able to switch from instrument to instrument with complete confidence and ease, as well as blending their voices in the unique way that only family can. Their influences range from TLC to Britney, Destiny's Child to The Strokes, all of which they channel into their slick brand of electro-pop-rock.

Amethyst Amelia Kelly, aka Australian-American Iggy Azalea, is a professional model (2012's 'New Face Of Levi Jeans') turned hiphop/rap and electronic performer. Following a couple of well-received mix tapes, Iggy eventually signed to Mercury Records and Island Def Jam to release her debut album 'The New Classic', featuring guest appearances by T.I. and Charli XCX. Infatuated with hip hop from the early age of 11 when she first heard Tupac, Iggy is also heavily influenced by Missy Elliott, along with a guilty love of the Spice Girls!

Living up to his name, this RnB supremo and ix-time Grammy winner has worked with the likes of Kanye West, Jay Z, Alicia Keys and Lauren Hill. His three albums have all hit Number One on the Billboard R'n'B charts, and have sold over 600,000 copies in the UK alone.
John Legend tour dates
British-Albanian mezzo-soprano r'n'b queen Rita Ora has been around for a while, but came to full prominence in 2012 when she provided the vocals for DJ Fresh's 'Hot Right Now', which topped the UK singles chart in February. Rita followed this smashing into the charts with her own No.1 singles 'R.I.P' and 'How We Do (Party)', making her the only artist to have three No.1 singles in a row in 2012. The release of her debut album 'ORA' rounded off her incredible run also claiming the No.1 spot. 2012 saw her become one of the most exciting new artists to break through.

'Timbaland ascended to the top of the rap industry in the late '90s, remarkably balancing his in-demand hit-making abilities with his outlandish production style. Few rap producers were capable of such a balance between commerce and craft. Timbaland produced an endless list of hits, primarily for a select group of affiliates (Missy Elliott, Aaliyah, Jay-Z, Ginuwine) though also for a number of other A-list artists (Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, Nas, Justin Timberlake)'. – VH1
