I really don't get it how on Earth does a band like Girls Aloud get the idea to issue a live album? How the hell should that sound.

If David doesn't win this than there's no justice in the world of music. Unless it's a live DVD competition. :lol:

Ah, their hormones must have gone into overdrive for them to pick Girls Aloud :roll: Still, it's a pity David didn't win.

As an aside
...where DJ’s will entertain
Never trust an organisation which can't use apostrophes properly.
