The 'Heaven' singer offers her words of praise for the rappers as well as former X Factor winner Leona Lewis.

Emeli Sande has admitted she has a lot of admiration for rappers Tinie Tempah and Professor Green.

The Scottish singer-songwriter has collaborated with a number of big named acts and confessed that she has also enjoyed working with some of Simon Cowell's protégés.

She told the Daily Mirror: "Tinie Tempah, Professor Green and Devlin are all guys I really respect. Then we started moving into Simon Cowell’s world and worked with Leona Lewis, Susan Boyle and Cher Lloyd.

"It is a hard world to get into, but once you are in they are very loyal. I had a song they really liked, but I told them I was keeping it for my album."

The 'Read All About It' singer singled out Leona Lewis as someone who she thought was "phenomenal" and shared a lot in common with.

"Leona came into the studio with us for a couple of weeks. She was really cool. We had a lot in common. She has a phenomenal voice and was lovely."

Emeli was recently announced as the BRIT Critics' Choice Award Winner and is scheduled to release her debut album 'Our Version Of Events' in February 2012.
