The National ‘Music’ Awards
So, last night ITV 1 treated us to The National Music Awards. For ‘Music’, read ‘manufactured pop tat’. This shameless music industry exec back-slap hosted by Martine McClutchen wheeled out z-list celebs such as Michael Grecko to hand out awards. Gary Lucy (of Hollyoaks ‘fame’) awarded The Simpsons ‘Best TV music’ award. Of course they’re far too important to care about (or collect) such a pointless award and Lucy walked of with it himself after looking insanely uncomfortable. Kylie won an award, she didn’t turn up either. The biggest surprises were Will Young winning ‘Best Male’ singer and Gareth Gates getting ‘Most edible bachelor’ or something like that. Needless to say the NMA’s are a completely pointless load of cack that nobody who seriously enjoys music will enjoy. However, the same people who watch The National Soap awards will lap it up.
