* Jazz singer and bassist Esperanza Spalding got a huge amount of publicity when she won Best New Artist at the 2011 Grammys. Unfortunately, much of this was due to a perceived AwardSnub over Music/JustinBieber, and to a lesser extent, Music/{{Drake}}; according to an edition of ''Literature/UncleJohnsBathroomReader'' her page on ThatOtherWiki was vandalized multiple times by many of Bieber's fans with sayings such as "JUSTIN DESERVED IT GO DIE IN A HOLE".

* Music/CherLloyd. Music/EdSheeran. Olly Murs. Music/LittleMix. What do these four British artists have in common? They all used Music/OneDirection to become popular in the United States. Cher Lloyd finished fourth on the 2010 edition of Series/TheXFactor, right behind One Direction. Ed Sheeran has written songs for One Direction, most notably "Little Things". Olly Murs, runner-up of the 2009 edition, has performed in America as an opener for One Direction. Little Mix were the winners of the 2011 edition, and while they did have moderate chart success in the US, one of its members, Perrie Edwards, was at one point engaged to former 1D member Zayn Malik. The group have also helped spawn interest in the American version of the X Factor, which gave to the public the likes of Music/FifthHarmony and Alex & Sierra.

** It works inversely as well. Fellow boy band Music/TheWanted were overshadowed by One Direction in the US market and forgotten aftewards, although they were still successful in their native UK. Music/JustinBieber also took a major hit thanks to 1D, but came back swinging after releasing the single "Where Are Ü Now" with Skrillex and Diplo, as well the album ''Purpose''.
** "Human" by Rag'n'Bone Man was a relatively unknown song until November of 2016, when it skyrocketed to #3 on the British charts and became a runaway hit in the UK (and eventually worldwide) after it was featured on ''X Factor'' -- '''not''' because of One Direction, [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers for a change]], but rather because of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G89-8R6pZwU eventual semifinalist Emily Middlemas]], who made the then-risky decision of performing the song in the quarterfinals after weeks of being assigned ballad after ballad by her mentor Simon.

*** And if there was any doubt to its power before, 2013 cements its status as the Colbert Bump of indie music. Music/VanceJoy won with "Riptide" over "[[Music/DaftPunk Get Lucky]]" and "[[{{Lorde}} Royals]]", which were two of the biggest songs globally that year, and "[[Music/ArcticMonkeys Do I Wanna Know?]]", which wasn't ''as'' big but still had a considerably higher profile than "Riptide". Before this, Vance Joy didn't even have a record deal and was only known in-station through the ''Unearthed'' podcast. Afterwards, the song hit the Top 10 in several countries and netted Vance a deal with Atlantic.

* Music/TheWeeknd had a rise comparable to Chris Stapleton, seeing as they both became popular within the same year. He did some guest vocals on a Music/{{Drake}} song and had at least one minor hit in his own right ("Wanderlust", a collaboration with Music/PharrellWilliams), but wasn't as popular as the likes of Music/TaylorSwift... that is, until he contributed the song "Earned It" to the ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' film soundtrack. That song quickly made the top 5, and his next few singles were just as huge, with two ("Can't Feel My Face" and "The Hills") even hitting #1.
