"Next up" means something ?

Struggling to break through the language barrier? Maybe we can help. Heard, seen or said something that made you giggle? We'd love to hear about it.

Like any spoken language, it depends very much on the context. Without context, it seems like something like “à qui le tour?â€￾ Imagine yourself at a stand-up comedy evening, or a karaoke bar, or just trying to buy a drink at a busy café. But that might be wildly wrong. Either tell us more, or go to a more suitable site (and then give them the full context), like this one

Thanks, I want to make a "team name" like "Next Up Generation"
The problem is that "Up" has to be in the middle of the name and I want to have the idea of New/future generation.

"Next Up Generation" can mean something ?

If not, have you got an idea please ?

Thanks

Webdoc. You’re a good wordsmith. Any ideas?
What’s Up Generation
What’s Up Next
What’s Up and Coming
(Up and coming veut dire promettant, montant, succès dans l’avenir)

I think ludox wants SOMETHING up generation.

Perhaps Coming up generation, or Growing up generation? Neither are great. If it's just something for a pub quiz it might do, but if it's for something more important (like the permanent name for a band) a bit more thought might be needed.

Next Up Generation will do fine. It’s a useful thing about English that you can just stick words together like this, and people get what you are “on aboutâ€￾. Good luck.

I must admit I've never heard 'next up" being used in this way - normally it refers to the next item in a TV or radio programme, etc, and just means "next" - one of numerous Americanisms creeping into British English, using completely redundant words (cf ""meet up with" for "meet").
