Emeli Sande Reflects On Adele and Singing Competition TV Shows

(Radio.com) Scottish singer/songwriter Emeli Sande stopped by the Fresh 102.7 studios last week to chat with Jim & Kim about her debut album, "Our Version of Events," how she started her career and the effect singing competition shows are having on the music industry.

When Adele's career took off at the end of 2009 with her hit "Rolling In The Deep," Emeli who's real name is also Adele, decided to go with her middle name, Emeli as her stage name, in order to form her own identity in the industry.

Despite the name conflict, Adele admires Sande and is a fan of her music. "It's amazing. Even before I released anything in the UK, she'd seen me on a show we have over there called 'Jools Holland' and she tweeted about it. To have that support from someone so huge was really encouraging," she said.

The singer can sympathize with the love-hate relationship people have with music competition shows, but overall these programs are beneficial for both artists looking for their big break.

There's less development in the music industry now than ever before. And if people need to find exposure these programs are great. The people that I've worked with are so passionate about music and I would never think less of them as an artist at all. I've been really pleased with the work I've done with these shows," she said. more on this story
