MTV redeems themselves

The past few years, MTV has not been worth watching. It's been a lot of bad dating shows and stupid teenage crap usually revolving around sex or promiscuity. Their awards are even worse and more pointless.

This year, they're redeeming themselves. In Liverpool on November 6th, they're holding the Europe Music Awards and right now are allowing people to cast votes for categories like "Rock Out" (nominees: Linkin Park, Metallica, Paramore, Slipknot, and 30 Seconds to Mars), "Most Addictive Track" (nominees: "Viva la Vida" by Coldplay, "Mercy" by Duffy, "I Kissed A Girl" by Katy Perry, "All Summer Long" by Kid Rock, and "So What" by P!nk) and "Album of the Year" (nominees: "As I Am" by Alicia Keys, "Blackout" by Britney Spears, "Viva la Vida" by Coldplay, "Rockferry" by Duffy, and "Spirit" by Leona Lewis).

There's also an award for "Best Act Ever." Nominees: Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Green Day, U2, Tokio Hotel, and Rick Astley.

Yes. You read that right. Rick Astley has been nominated for "Best Act Ever" by the MTV EMA.

To all who read this, I beseech you, follow this link and vote to help make Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" the best act ever. Because truly it is. Here's the evidence:

Even Barack Obama knows how awesome Rick Astley is:

Now THAT is how you win elections my friends!

i voted.
and despite "viva la vida" suffering from being way overplayed on the radio (not its fault), i'd vote for that, too.
