OT, but is that the lead Keane-man in the icon with Bono? If so, it's adorable. Keane was great back in October with U2, best out of the four support bands I saw by far!

Yes, taken at Live 8. :)  Keane are my second favourite band, it tears me up inside that other people got to see them support U2 and I didn't - that would have been my dream concert!

And there was me thinking I'd bought HTDAAB in 2004!!! Likewise with the AF album.

I was surprised to see HTDAAB in there too, I mean I assume it's like the Grammies and there's a cutoff date for eligibility, but I could have sworn it was nominated last year as well??

I suppose they would argue its singles have dominated the UK charts in 2005. Still its a wasted nomination imo.

Your probably right about being nominated last year also! Wouldn't that be funny, it wasn't good enough last time. But it wins again this time?! Straaange.

Wait wait wait wait wait!

HTDAAB was nominated last year for Best International Album. Is that allowed?
