Since Best Coast debuted with 2010's Crazy for You, the L.A. duo of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno has enjoyed steady buzz in the indie-music scene, which continued with 2012's The Only Place and last year's Ep, Fade Away. But the acclaim was more or less predestined for Cosentino, who did some acting as a kid and had attention from record labels as a teenager.

Well, series two of The Big Reunion comes to a close tonight with footage of the big Hammersmith gig, and it's fair to say that we're going to miss it. Where will we turn now for more backstage gossip, tales of woe, and awkward 'I haven't done this in a really long time' dance shuffling? Our only hope is that the show will return for a third series - and until it does, we'll wildly speculate about who could take part. So below, we present Digital Spy's picks for the next Big Reunion - let us know what you think, and tell us who you want to see on the show below!
Let Loose - Catriona Wightman, Entertainment Editor
Let Loose fit the Big Reunion bill perfectly. A trio of good-looking men (oh, Richie, the mere mention of your name makes us come over all funny) with one absolutely killer »
