The 'Heaven' star speaks to Capital FM after being named as next year's winner.

Emeli Sande has said it "means so much" to be named the winner of the Critics' Choice Award at next year's BRIT Awards in London.

The Scottish singer-songwriter beat fellow shortlisted artists Maverick Sabre and Michael Kiwanuka, who were second and third respectively. 

Speaking to Capital FM's showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes, Emeli said she was delighted to join previous winners Jessie J (2011), Ellie Goulding (2010), Florence and the Machine (2009) and Adele (2008).

She said: "It means so much. I remember last year I was actually at the BRITs and I saw Jessie pick up her award and I saw Adele performing.

"To be part of that group – such incredible musicians – really means the world to be honest."

The 'Heaven' singer added that winning was a "huge deal" because "this is the biggest awards ceremony there is".

Emeli will perform at the nominations announcement on 12th January. The BRIT Awards 2012 take place at the O2 Arena in London on 21st February.
