The rock superstars with the melodic tunes who have had a meteoric and well deserved rise to the top since the release of 'Parachutes' in 2000, winning countless awards along the way.

Coldplay tour dates
'The King of R'n'B', Usher Raymond, burst onto the music scene in 1994 and went on to be the first artist to have a number one single on the UK Singles Chart and the Billboard Hot 100 during the 1990s, 2000s, and the 2010s. Challenging himself creatively and testing musical boundaries are characteristics that have defined Usher's career since he was first discovered an unbelievable twenty years ago on Star Search. Since then, he has sold over 43 million albums worldwide. Billboard named him the second most successful artist of the 2000s decade, with his ten-million-selling 2004 album Confessions ranked as the top solo album of the decade.

Example's meteoric rise from fresh-faced Fulham rapper to worldwide club anthem superstar has been nothing short of spectacular. Since hitting the charts in 2009, Example has gone from strength to strength, with hit singles such as 'Kickstarts' and 'Changed The Way You Kissed Me' the summer anthems of the last two years.
Example tour dates
Essex-born songwriter Jessie J has penned tunes for the likes of Alicia Keyes, toured with Chris Brown and notably wrote Miley Cyrus's Number One billboard smash 'Party In The USA!' Jessie kicked off her solo career with “Price Tag”, the anti-materialistic anthem of its year, and an album that sold in its millions going platinum several times over. But that was just the beginning of a journey that would see Jessie become the first British woman in history to take six top ten singles from one album and never mind that it was her first outing.
While her multi-octave voice and self-made attitude has earned Jessie J the respect of music's glitterati; from Kylie to Justin Timberlake commenting 'Who is the best singer? Jessie J!', to Cyndi Lauper pulling her on stage at Shepherds Bush to sing her legendary anthem 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' alongside her.

Sheeran made chart history at the beginning of 2017 by being the only artist to debut two brand new singles in the top two positions, with 'Castle Of You' reaching no.2 and 'Shape Of You' reaching no.1 simultaneously, along with each individual track from his 'Divide' album entering the top 20 of the singles chart. He achieved one of his greatest feats by headlining Glastonbury Festival in June 2017.

One of 2010's biggest breakthroughs, the edgy-pop boy band based in London have already built up a huge fanbase.

In March 2011, Jay, Max, Nathan, Siva and Tom released the official Comic Relief single for Red Nose Day, 'Gold Forever', which became their third top five single.

Since bursting onto the music scene as the winner of American Idol, Texas-born Kelly Clarkson has sold over 20 million albums worldwide, including seven top ten singles in the UK with over 3.5 million units sold in the UK alone. Things came around full circle for her in 2015 when she returned to her TV talent show roots by being a mentor on the 14th season of American Idol for their 'Evening With Kelly Clarkson' themed week. What better accolade for the singer who first won the series way back in 2002?
