The Rick Astley Debate
Does he deserve his MTV EMA nomination or has Rickrolling gone too far?
Rick Astley is up for Best Act Ever at the MTV Europe Music Awards this November and its certainly causing a lot of debate in offices around the country.
Our poll on the issue has generated a ridiculous 20 million votes- suggesting that yet again we've fallen victim to internet phenomenon 'Rickrolling'! And the result is staggering- 99.98% of the votes say the Never Gonna Give You Up singer deserves to be in our prestigious category- alongside Britney Spears and Green Day.
Many fans claim the nomination has nothing to do with Rickrolling. Some people say we should die for even suggesting it has.
Rickrolling started when people started posting his videos and now it has seemingly spread to voting for him to win prizes! False links to youtube have tricked people into watching his classic 1987 hit Never Gonna Give you Up over 20 million times.
And with voting for the awards up to the public the Rick-rolling craze looks likely to continue.
Who knows if hell be taking home one of our prestigious prizes in Liverpool on November 6!
