I am such a huge fan of all of these artists, and I can’t wait to see where their musical journeys take them this year!”  While Johnson offered advice to the artists, telling them to stay true to themselves and stay on their own path: “Listen to the spirit that led you to this point tonight and don’t ever stray from it.”
