Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen, to DS's Next Top Artist. Its our sixth season, but we still have such a great quality of acts, making up an incredible line-up.

As stated in the reveal thread, we are back for another series of Indie & Mainstream. As the winner with Frank Ocean, I will be taking charge of hosting the Indie side of things. And Niall, winning with The Noisettes, will be hosting Mainstream side.

Tonight we'll be revealing which returning and new forum members will be taking part this series, along with the two acts that they will be mentoring. We will also be revealing the first theme, and information into how the next few weeks will pan out.

So sit back, and enjoy the reveals.

Amazing thread, it's a shame I won't be participating in this series due to upcoming projects, but I'll be keeping an eye on it for sure (Zak, you better have a flawless act like Halestorm again )!

So we begin, with the guy who started it all its Alexos. NTA’s creater, 3 time host, and two time runner up. Will his third time actually playing be his luck turn, and win. Here’s his acts, and what he said about them.

My Indie act is much more than just another quirky girl. With five albums and four top 20 hits in Norway, her career is ever-expanding. You may not recognise her name yet, but you soon will. Please welcome Susanne Sundfor!

My Mainstream act has had a huge influence on the music in the UK and the US, both behind the scenes and in the spotlight. Addictive beats, a unique voice, and looks to die for are all part of the package. Here's Frankmusik!
Back to Niall with our next mentor!!

Our next mentor has one of the most impeccable records in NTA history! She's been runner up twice, won twice and has even hosted a series! I am of course talking about aliyah101!

The band I have chosen are a British band from London fronted by their main vocalist Dan Smith. Their sound mixes Indie Pop, Synth Pop and Indie Rock. They are perhaps most applauded for covering a range of popular songs using their own sound and interpreting them as their own, they also recorded this mixtape called "Other people's heartache"

This band emerged into the scene 2 years ago and their best hit is actually their most recent, shooting to number 2 in the official charts with their single "Pompeii". Their debut album followed a week later, and placed at number-one in the UK Albums Chart.
I give you to.... BASTILLE!

_______________________________

This band has a sound that is an amazing throw back to the retro 80’s alternative music, blended with a new wave indie sound that makes their music absolutely infectious.With mature vocals, dynamic melodies and strong lyrics, I believe this band has exquisite soul.

The lead singer and writer Chloe Chaidez is only 17 years old,and with photogenic looks, a sharp fashion sense and an arena-huge voice, this band are a rock lioness waiting to roar.

I give to you.... KITTEN!

Next, over to Barry_Clarke, who hasn’t played in a while, but is very well known on the forums for his strong feelings about certain acts. He is in Portugal now, so didnt send anything in, but here are his acts:

Mainstream - Sharleen Spiteri

Karima Francis

Dandem is the next mentor. Having played twice before, he's hoping it'll be third time lucky this time.

This is a guy who can do everything. He's a multi-instrumentalist, producer, songwriter and wonderful vocalist. He has worked with many brilliant artists in his career so far including Timbaland, Gym Class Heroes, Far East Movement and Sebastien Ingrosso, as well as writing and producing singles for artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Leona Lewis and Kelly Clarkson. He is best known as the frontman for the band OneRepublic, I present to you my mainstream act..Ryan Tedder

- Next, I present to you a four-piece band from America. Consisting of Brian, Alex, Alex and Benny, their music has been described as embracing many elements of the Jersey Shore Sound. The band has cited legends such as Bruce Springsteen, The Clash and The Replacements as influences on their music. My indie act are...
The Gaslight Anthem
Sorry misspost!!

Our next mentor is dondfan998! She was one of the original NTA mentors back in series 1, however hasn't taken part in a series in a while. She's hoping to make an amazing comeback with these acts...

My mainstream act is Justin Timberlake. I chose Justin because he's a great example of someone who doesn't release a new record every year and comes out with an attempt at something new, but it's a bit samey-samey. Justin's had three albums over his career span and they've each had some excellent tracks which I hope he'll get the potential to show off on the game.

My Indie act comes from the world of country music. Sara Evans has had a music career which has almost spanned 20 years, and in my opinion has one of the purest female voices in her genre. I chose Sara because I don't think her country music really gets the accolades that they really deserve over other country music artists such as LeAnn Rimes, who screwed up a little girl's song on The X Factor drunk (which was hilarious, though) and in America, someone like Wynonna Judd, who married a man named Cactus (barf). Therefore, I hope Sara's wide discography of country music can help her throughout this journey.

Next we have a newbie on the NTA scene its fireemblemcraze. But does she have begineers luck, which will lead her to win. Only time will tell. Heres his info on her acts:

For my mainstream act, I introduce the lady who epitomizes never-say-never. She’s a girl who we grew up with (well most of us?); we saw the attractions and we saw more attractions; with her audacious one-XF-performance-in-10-years ways, I give you my daring diva: P!nk.

The thing that attracts me about P!nk so much is her versatility, who knew she could do ballads AND uptempo? And she’s so sweet to her fans too…she gave my friend a pat on the back. I want a pat on my back! From P!nk!

To all her competitors - as soon as she opens her mouth, your funeral:

So What Mate?

_______

I have always been a bit of a rock chick since listening to Dad's Queen and Pink Floyd CDs, listening to my favourite XF contestant Ruth Lorenzo and her awesome rock chick versions of classics...and then finally getting my first Ipod and listening to Evanescence and Linkin Park – my two favourite bands in all of musicdom. Now of course I couldn’t use Eva and Link in this comp so I decided to go with a band with that blend of my two favourite bands: a modern deep rock with a darker twist. And there you go, I give you my third favourite band in musicdoom: Thousand Foot Krutch. Their unique rock rapping is just so epic, and I hope I can make you guys love them just as much as I do. Just look at how badass they are:

Badass Boys

The lead singer being hot always helps too. Ahhh Trevor...sorry the mentor must not indulge in fantasies with their contestants (didn’t stop Simon tbh with his boys). A quickie at what I mean:

Warning - Ridiculously Hot Guy

Jess/I've Got Class has been present in most of the past contest, at first mastering the art of being eliminated week two. But it all changed last contest, where her two acts did really well, with Amanda Jensen coming 7th. Will her upwards trajectory continue.

Mainstream - Joss Stone

Indie - Dinner and a Suit
