BRIT Award winner Emeli Sande is already a force overseas, and we’ve been keeping our eyes on the Scottish singer-songwriter since we featured her in our Popping Up series in December. She’ll be releasing her debut LP Our Version Of Events on these shores on June 5 (via Capitol Records). And last night Sande made her US television debut when she hit up Conan and offered up a stripped-down performance of her piano-and-beat-driven stomper “Next To Me”. Give it a watch above, and see if you think Emeli’s got the goods to join her UK peers Adele, One Direction, Jessie J and The Wanted in the upper reaches of the American charts.
