    Best Irish Pop Act!?!?? Conway Sisters - On The X Factor = How does that make a best Irish Pop Act singing Covers!? Ronan Keating - No releases in ages, why he even in contention!? Brian McFadden - WHAT!?!?! Tabby - ok starting to spot the X factor system here, maybe i underestimated his current single! Westlife - surely they should just get the award now, why wait like!? Zoo - Not been for ages but I here its really gone down hill - In fact if you combined the Monkeys on Bass, Seal on wailing, Polar(bears..arf arf..) on guitars and let the Eels keep tempo you'd probably get a better sound then all of the above!

    Events like these are why we *need* Islamic fundamentalism. Or any sort for that matter.

    Is it me or does the inclusion of the Conway Sisters seriously undermine what ounce of credibility that the Meteors once held ever so slightly to!!! I mean, will they even be around in 2006! Lets hope not.

    which, the conways or the Meteors?? anyway, who really takes awards seriously who nominate a 2004 album release (U2) in the Album of the Year category? Or who, as benni points out, dont have any room for the Arcade Fire @ Electric Picnic? and who the hell decides these anyway? it looks like the MCD annual dinner dance to me

    Of course it is man Its probably the most laughed at awards show in the history of the world! Ah seriously tho... it is f**king s**te. We all know we'd all do a much better and more informed job. But what *CAN* ya do... M-O-A-N!!!!!

    Id have to disagree with you their wholeheartedly gar. Humanzi are a breath of fresh air for Dublin! They just ooze energy! Delorentos are doin their thing aswell and seem to be a really hardworkin band and fair dues to them but i think it would just be great to see a band like Humanzi given recognition like this. Its something new and fresh and original and it would be great for the Irish scene for them to scoop this gong!

    yea its gotta be Humanzi for me for that one just seein them perform at the TMBC a few weeks back ...compared to a lot of Irish stuff they really are in their own league in terms of performance, songs, stage presence. Yea they pretty much had that crowd nailed in seconds.

    I do agree that Humanzi are an exciting new band, and I like them alot. Doesn't really matter who wins these awards as they don't mean much. But personally, I'd just vote for Delorentos.

    humanzi aren't original. they're great performers, and exciting to watch, but they're not original.

    Thems the rules ... '... Atomic Bomb' was releeased after the closing date for last years awards, hence its nominated now. Only albums released between this date & that, are elligible. Simple. Reminds me of Mobys 'Play' album at the Brits. It was such a sleeper hit, that by the time it had seeped into every accountants collection, it was considered too old, by the rules of the competition.

    Like to see HUMANZI do well just because they have talent, the rest is beyond awful. Best Irish Male is like a geriatric ward on a Monday morning. SJ

    The only award i'd be really interested in seeing is the new Irish act,i think im right in saying that all the other bands besides Leya are from Dublin which is unfortunately not suprising.....
