"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.

Webdoc. You’re a good wordsmith. Any ideas?

What’s Up Next
What’s Up and Coming

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.

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").
