I said from the start that I thought Haven Factor would get better with each edition, once the most obvious acts are used up. I'm really looking forward to this one, as I think we'll get a really broad spread of music - many different genres, decades, levels of success, etc.
I reckon a couple of big names (some of the candidates have already been mentioned), some solid second tier acts, a few unknowns, and, I fear, a possible "joke" entry.
Ant & Dec, Scooch, Cheeky Girls, Jedward, Clif Richard, Elvis Presley, Madonna, Rolling Stones, Muse, The Cure, Conchita Wurst, Beverley Knight, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Simon & Gafunkel, The 1975, Scooter, Cranberries, The hollies...i could go on
Any of these maybe. Look forward to the reveal whilst listening to Paul Gambacinni

No not Elvis or the Stones but Little Richard (real name Richard Penniman), he exploded on the Fifties music scene with his thunderous piano and electrifying stage presence, setting the tone for the future of rock and roll. Inducted into the charter class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, Penniman has been a huge influence on many artists of several music genres, including soul, rhythm and blues and rock. In addition to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Penniman was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003. With 15 studio albums and 16 top 40 UK singles this artists mentor is spoilt for choice

Tiffany, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and former teen icon. She is most notable for her 1987 cover of "I Think We're Alone Now,” a song originally recorded by Tommy James and the Shondells in 1967. Released as the second single from her eponymous album "Tiffany" the song quickly became a teen anthem. Thanks to an original mall tour, Tiffany found commercial success when both the single and the album peaked at No. 1 in the USA. 10 studio albums ranging from 1987 to 2018 she has a huge catalogue of modern hits and 80’s classic’s, could be a dark horse to go far in Haven Factor 6 like Kim Wilde and Kirsty Maccoll
