10 for 2010: What the others say…

By on Friday, 11th December 2009 at 2:00 pm

So, yesterday we finished our 10 for 2010 countdown with Delphic being crowned the band you are most excited about in 2010.

Whilst we may be one of the first sites to reveal our list of bands we are excited about in 2010, MTV and the BBC have both released their longlists: MTV’s “10 for 10 list” (not stealing our name idea at all….!), and the BBC’s Sound of 2010. It’s interestingto see some artists appearing in all three lists (Delphic, Ellie Goulding, Marina and the Diamonds and The Drums), and nice to see that wehave covered 8 of the 15 in the BBC’s longlist ahead of them.

Review our top 10 below and the lists from MTV and BBC after the jump. Let us know what you think about the lists and who you think is going to do big things in 2010 in the comments below…
