One Direction (one of the highest selling acts of the year — the new Bieber)
Gotye (alternative/hipster pick with crossover hit)
Ellie Goulding (If eligible; submitted last year)
Ed Sheeran (Amazing UK singer/songwriter; def Grammy material if he blows up here in the U.S.)
Rita Ora (UK Pop artist; signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, so they might buy the nom a la J. Cole last year)

I doubt this will actually be the line-up now that I’ve realized none of the acts are American, but hey … it could happen.
