It’s been a big year for Ellie Goulding. Never mind that last year saw the UK singer/songwriter win the BBC Sound of 2010 award, release her debut album to a No. 1 chart position in Great Britain, and basically become a household name across Europe. In 2011, she topped it all by staging a performance at the royal wedding, at the personal request of the world’s most talked about couple. With all that momentum, people Stateside are starting to perk up and take notice, as evidenced by Goulding’s recent appearance on Saturday Night Live.
