Jack Garratt wins the BRITs Critic's Choice Award
Singer and multi-instrumentalist Jack Garratt has been named as this year's winner of the BRITs Critic's Choice award, following in the footsteps of artists like James Bay, Sam Smith and Adele, all of whom are former recipients.
In an interview with Radio 1's Newsbeat, Garratt said "It's not something I was expecting to happen. "It's a definite surprise. I'm humbled to have been nominated, let alone won it."
Asked if he was daunted by joining a list of winners that includes some big hitters, Garratt said he wasn't feeling any pressure: "If anything I feel totally safe and in fantastic company, I may not live up to those kinds of expectations but I will work and work as hard as I can to keep the prestige of the award alive, 100 per cent."
