Olivia, 18 – who released her debut album, ‘SOUR’, in May – has enjoyed a meteoric rise this year, and she’s also been nominated for the Best International Song award.

Holly Humberstone has already been announced as the winner of the coveted Rising Star award, following in the footsteps of artists such as Adele and Sam Smith.
