Shortlist Announced For 2023 BRITs Rising Star Award

Tuesday, 29 November 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

The shortlist for the 2023 BRITs Rising Star award has been revealed.

Cat Burns, FLO and Nia Archives have made the final cut, having been chosen by a panel of music editors and critics from the national press, online music editors, heads of music at major radio and music television stations as well as songwriters, producers and live bookers.

The criteria for the award requires that the relevant artist has not achieved a top 20 album or single by October 31, 2022. 

22-year-old South London singer-songwriter Cat Burns said:

“A BRITs Rising Star nomination was a major thing on my bucket list for me this year, so to have achieved that honestly means the world to me. I’m super grateful for the year I’ve had and am so honoured to have been chosen!”

British R&B girl group FLO commented:

“It’s a dream come true to receive a BRIT nomination less than a year after dropping our first single. We all grew up watching the BRITs with our mums, and have been inspired by the girl groups and powerful female artists who have performed on that stage. We’re grateful to everyone who has believed in our vision so far and can’t wait to share more music with the world. Girl groups are back and we want to pave the way for more artists to achieve their dreams. We hope that this is the first of many BRIT nominations for FLO.”

Leeds artist Nia Archives added:

“Words won’t describe how I’m feeling about being nominated for the BRITs Rising Star. Growing up and watching it on TV, I really never thought it could happen to someone like me. I'm just so overwhelmed and happy right now.”

The winner of the Rising Star award will be announced on December 8. Previous winners include Adele, Sam Fender, Sam Smith, Griff, and, most recently, Holly Humberstone.

The Brit Awards 2023 will take over the O2 Arena in London on February 11.
