James Bay feels proud to be part of the BRITs Critics' Choice winners "crew".
The 'Hold Back The River' hitmaker - who has been handed the BRITs Critics' Choice gong as part of the 2015 BRIT Awards with MasterCard - has revealed that he wants to emulate the success of some of the award's former winners.
When asked how he felt to be part of a group of winners that includes Adele, Florence Welch and Jessie J, he said: "It's amazing to be part of that little crew you know, or feel like that. They've proved themselves and they're as amazing as everyone says.
"I'm going to try and do the same. Adele hasn't congratulated me, if she did that would be nuts!"
The 24-year-old singer/songwriter - who hails from Hertfordshire, south east England - is hoping for success across the pond too.
Speaking on the red carpet at the BRIT Awards with MasterCard nominations show, 'The BRITs Are Coming', where he also performed, he told BANG Showbiz: "American success? Fingers crossed. I think they know about the BRITs from tiny little old England, yeah fine they've got the Grammys, whatever!
"I have a lot to show for this; I guess it points a lot of people in my direction at the moment so I have to use that. And that's my plan so hopefully that will change things for the better and push things forward."
The 2015 BRIT Awards with MasterCard will be held in London on February 25th.
