More than just a mere Britney clone, Christina Aguilera has a powerful voice and an image to match. Her second album 'Stripped' saw her move away from the clean-teen chart scene with a brash new sound, gritty and gutsier than before, leaning more towards R'n'B, dance and hip-hop. She's had big success wearing little costumes in the chart-topping singles 'Dirty' and, from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, 'Lady Marmalade'.
Christina Aguilera tour dates
British RnB singer who shot to fame as winner of The X Factor television series in 2006. She initially trained in opera, but went on to singing jazz and blues, eventually leading to popular music, citing Minnie Riperton, Eva Cassidy and Stevie Wonder as her main influences.
Leona Lewis tour dates
JB, Aston, Marvin and Oritsé reached the final two of the X Factor back in 2008 - the first group ever to get that far on the show. Since then, their success has been nothing short of staggering, with sold-out arena and stadium tours, number one singles and multi-platinum albums. They have also won four MOBO Awards and two 2010 BRIT trophies to date. The group have decided to go their separate ways following their Greatest Hits Tour at the end of 2013, saying: "It has been the most incredible journey over the last 6 years and we have achieved more things than we could have ever dreamed possible."
JLS tour dates
Alexandra Burke grew up in North London and is the daughter of former Soul II Soul lead singer Melissa Bell. Influenced by classic soul singers and contemporary heroes such as Mariah Carey and Beyonce, the three-time BRIT nominee rose to fame after winning the fifth series of The X Factor in 2008.
Her debut number one single Hallelujah sold over one million copies in the UK, a first for a British female soloist. Burke’s first album, Overcome saw the release of her subsequent number one singles Bad Boys and Start Without You. In 2011 she embarked on her first solo tour and was invited by Beyoncé to support her I Am... Tour. Her second album, Heartbreak on Hold, was released in June 2012 and 2014 sees the release of her third studio album.
Alexandra has also received acclaim for her portrayal of Rachel Marron in the sell-out run of Thea Sharrock’s hit musical The Bodyguard at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End.
Alexandra Burke tour dates
They've proved themselves as having both a quirky sense of humour and an ear for blending upbeat nu-metal with sweet melodies with their first two singles ('Smooth Criminal' and 'Movies'). Yet, with 'Anthology', AAF cemented their place as one of the more mature and talented Nu-Metal bands to appear. Infectious riffs and well-written material, which proves that singing meaningfully about love in metal doesn't mean 'reach for the razors'.
Alien Ant Farm tour dates
Atlanta's CeeLo Green first came to our attention thanks to the worldwide success of his vocal on 'Crazy', under the guise of Gnarls Barkley with producer/DJ Dangermouse. Since then, Cee Lo's modern take on soul, funk, r'n'b and pop has taken him back to the top of the charts with the controversial single 'F**k You' (re-titled 'Forget You' for the radio!), which received five Grammy nominations.
In addition to his success as a recording artist, CeeLo Green completed four seasons as a coach on NBC’s hit show The Voice alongside Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

Since his emergence in 1999 appearing on the Artful Dodger's Re-Rewind single, Craig David has become known as one of the forerunners of the UK garage and RnB scenes. Famous for hits such as Fill Me In and 7 Days, he's scored 20 UK top 40 singles, 5 UK top 20 albums and sold over 15 million albums worldwide. With his last album released in 2010, many people thought Craig was 'walking away' from the music scene. In the meantime he'd taken up a career as a club and radio DJ under the guise of TS5, before returning to his own music in 2016 with his 6th studio album Following My Intuition, reaching no.1 on the UK album charts and certified gold.

Diversity tour dates
Soulful R&B influenced pop princess, Pixie Lott, began her music career at the tender age of fifteen when she caught the ear of producer L.A Reid who signed her to Island Def Jam Records. This provoked an industry bidding war and Pixie then moved to Mercury in the UK, partnering with Interscope in the USA. She catapulted to worldwide fame with her debut album 'Turn It Up' which reached Platinum status spending 50 weeks in the Top 40 and producing Five consecutive Top 20 singles, including three UK No.1 singles with 'Mama Do', 'Boys and Girls' and 'All About Tonight'. Pixie has sold over 4 million singles and 1.6 million albums worldwide.

The legendary Smokey Robinson has written and produced such hit songs as Tracks of My Tears, Tears of a Clown, My Girl, and Cruisin'. Still constantly touring to sold out crowds, he doesn't just give you a selection of hits, but his entire show is a production itself – with lights, effects, script and music.
Smokey Robinson tour dates
Since the age of four, Gladys Knight has enchanted people with her startling voice and soulful lyrics, and almost 60 years on is still a major presence in soul music and a massive influence on rhythm 'n' blues in the world today. Her works are known for their touching and true-to-life nature, and Gladys herself cites her songs to be sincerely personal, remarking, 'Every song has to touch me emotionally and spiritually in some way. I couldn't do a song that I was cold about. Even if it was a hit, it just wouldn't be a hit for me'.
Gladys Knight tour dates
American recording artist, actress and spokesperson. She came to prominence in 2004 as one of the finalists on the third season of American Idol coming in seventh place.
Jennifer Hudson tour dates
'Ne-Yo posseses talent far beyond his years. Born into a family of musicians from Arkansas, Shaffer C. Smith a.k.a. Ne-Yo would discover his passion. Citing Prince, Marvin Gaye, The Rat Pack, and Stevie Wonder in his list of favourite entertainers, Ne-Yo's album invokes a nostalgic feeling, a renaissance if you will. Whether it's the bedroom or the dance floor, Ne-Yo's songs are filled with passion and intense energy that pulls (you into the music) and puts you into a zone.' - Def Jam Recordings.
