Ed Sheeran

Ginger-mopped English popster Ed Sheeran is only in his early 20s but already a huge hit at home—his debut album, +, entered the charts at number one, and he performed at the Olympics closing ceremony. He's making waves here, too, having recorded a duet with Taylor Swift for her best-selling album, Red and performing live with Elton John at The Grammys.     

Sam Smith

Sam Smith

It seems like everything Sam Smith touches turns to gold. His soaring vocals on Disclosure's "Latch" brought him universal attention, and then his falsetto-laden feature on Naughty Boy's "La La La" earned him his first number-one single and the 2014 Brit Critics' Choice Award. But the soulful wunderkind will probably be crooning mostly from his first studio album, In the Lonely Hour, a set of songs that show a distinct and stripped-down deviation from the dance-floor hits that first made Smith's voice famous.
