British music critics have decided that Jessie J will be the big new artist of 2011. She was picked ahead of James Blake and The Vaccines to be named the BRITS Critics’ Choice Award winner. Previous winners are Adele (2008), Florence And The Machine (2009) and Ellie Goulding (2010).

The singer said of her win: “This is epic! It has been a dream since I was a little girl to win a BRIT. I can’t believe it’s happened!”

Jessie will now perform at the BRITs nominations launch on 13 Jan at IndigO2 in the O2 Dome, which will be broadcast on ITV2 the following evening.
