Cautionary Wife Posted January 16, 2007 Share Posted January 16, 2007 Tuesday 16 January, 2007 In what promises to be the gay indie night of the year, new pop sensation Mika is set to perform live at Popstarz on Friday 26th January, 2007. The much hyped gig is now receiving even more attention due to Mika being placed at number 1 in the BBCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬ËœBest New TalentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ sound of 2007 music poll. The award decided by 130 music critics and broadcasters indicates which acts industry insiders are tipping for the top in 2007. Past winners have included the likes of Keane, Kaiser Chiefs, Razorlight and the Scissor Sisters. MikaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first single Ã¢â‚¬ËœGrace KellyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ is currently the most frequently played song on BBC Radio 2 and is Ã¢â‚¬ËœRecord of the weekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ on several of Radio 1Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s shows. "Every so often an artist comes along with hit written all over them and 2007 looks like being Mika's year" Radio 2's head of music, Colin Martin "He looks the part and his songs suggest what would have happened had Queen cross-bred with the Scissor Sisters."
