    I'm not sure about regae, but I think it's very interesting that in every catagory, there is an english speaking singer. Music from english speaking countries must have a very wide berth!

    I'm happy with all of the nominees , though! I'm very excited about the DADA nomination! That WAS a very good song and music video!

    There is no tomorrow for us
