The BEST News Ever - VIDEO Post

Ok, so you know I'm a sucker for all the old UK Pop hits, and Rick Astley has always been a fav of mine, and my mum's too ("Such a clean cut young man")

Anyhoo, Rick has been nominated for the BEST ACT EVER @ The MTV Europe Music Awards.. Rick is going up against Britney, Christina Aguilera, Green Day, Tokio Hotel and U2, the winner will be announced November 6 (8 days before my birthday, just thought I'd throw that out there).

How did Rick get resurrected? I use the word resurrected because he hasn't been around for over 20 years.

It's all thanks to an Internet movement known as "Rickrolling" and earlier this year saw Internet users unwittingly following hyperlinks to the video for Never Gonna Give You Up, LMAO.

Producer Richard Gregory said Astley’s awards nod showed “MTV has been well and truly ‘Rickrolled’”.

“This surprise nomination truly demonstrates that the MTV Europe Music Awards is the most democratically selected awards show there is,” he added.

“Rick’s fans have obviously decided that he deserves recognition as a pop icon and no doubt they are determined to make sure he wins on the night.”

So as a special treat, check out the MEGAMIX below, ooooh yeeeeaaaahhhh..
