kellylouise so agree with u about The Jonas Brothers...never understood the madness behind them. Its weird - The NME's seems to be a lot more guy-focused, and The Brits more girl-focused! Best website - Twitter, im addicted!! Hero of the Year should definitely NOT be Rage Against The Machine! And I cant pick Best Band...

Great picks.. So many great bands, I'm having trouble choosing myself. But the JoBro's can definitely pick up their awards for worst band and album, if it were up to me.
