Pop singer Kimbra — Critic Lydia Jenkin said 'She's a striking 21-year-old but she's also a delight to watch, full of theatrics, drama, and spiky, angular dance moves...' (Publicity shot)

I spotted this artist as ‘one to watch’ a while back — sparking minor eye-rolls from my teenage daughter at my positive comments. But she admits I spotted The Tings Tings too, and Mark Ronson. Yeah, I’m a pop-culture genius. (Just put my Horlicks down over there, thanks Matron.)

Anyway, good on Kimbra. She’s just won an award … a good one.

Many more to come from this talented performer, in my opinion.
