Radio 1's Teen Awards - 2012, Conor Maynard


7 Oct 2012
Wembley Arena

Future Boy

Sounding straight out of LA, it’s awesome to know that Mr. Maynard comes from our very own Brighton shores. Storming the charts with singles Can’t Say No and Vegas Girl, Maynard was discovered when mega successful RnB star Ne-Yo saw his cover of Beautiful Monster on YouTube and claimed Conor had a better voice than him. Ne-Yo called his people, who called Conor’s people, and the rest is history.

Winning MTV's Brand New for 2012 award, working with Frank Ocean and Rita Ora plus hailed as the future of pop music by N.E.R.D’s Pharrell Williams, it’s time to get excited about Conor. He’s often called the British Justin Bieber but it’s actually the other Justin – a certain Mr Timberlake – who needs to watch his step. We say a very big yes to the super-slick, hugely talented heart throb.
