Never gonna give you up!

Yay! Rick Astley won the Best Act Ever award! I'd like to think I contributed a little to his success, which was pretty significant:

The 42-year-old Englishman received 100 million votes – more than all the night's other winners combined – to take the title ahead of international stars such as U2, Britney Spears and The Beatles.
And even more so, because:

Astley's name was not included on the original award shortlist, but the public were allowed to nominate their own favourites and a groundswell of support quickly built up around the Lancastrian.
Rick wasn't at the award ceremony, but subsequently released a statement.

Well done, Rick!

You will be aware of Rick Astley being used for the Obama 'Never Gonna Give You Up' remix?
