My comments:

Now I have to admit, I was very happy to see Ashtray Electric won an award. There song song 'the swing' struck me the first time i ever heard it and saw the music video on MK. I remember going around to everyone, asking if they had heard of Ashtray Electric? I hope to see great things from them in the future.

The Parlotones deserve to win the amount of awards they did. I must confess though, sometimes i wish they weren't continually chosen for awards. But they are one of South Africa's best bands with their easy listening, groovy sound (even though half their songs aren't their own) and continuous hits. Their music video for 'I'll be there', is really great and that song is really great! Although i think they should have just won the best music video animation award, and aKing should have won over all best video for safe as houses. Their songs have always had the ability to get stuck into ones head! (probably beacuse they are already familiar...)

I am appalled that 'soen my nie meer nie' was chosen for best solo? That song just reminds me of my boyfriend's 'frakbow' (word used to describe a lower class moron, along the same level as dipshit) neighbour. He plays it on repeat at god-awful times of the morning when he returns home after a 'kiff parrrty'.

Foto Na Dans are great live. I truelly enjoyed hearing them play at Ramfest.

The 'best hard song' award couldnt have found itself a better home than with Van Coke Kartel.

I am surprised that Zebra and Giraffe didnt win anything – at least they got nominated!
