I tell you something the artists better sing live this year. I can't believe most of them mimed last year. If youre going to win record of the year you should at least prove youre worthy of it and perforn live.

The Record of the Year Final is on ITV1, Sat 6th December presented by Cat Deeley. Pop Idol is on in between the show and the results, so we have two programmes with phone votes on the same night !!!

17:45 Record of the Year
18:55 Pop Idol

21:00 Pop Idol result
21:30 - 22:15 Record of the Year Result

And is millionnaire in between the two pop idol shows?

And an itv1 saturday night schedule that I may watch. The voting for the final 10 is on this saturday early afternoon for record of the year isnt it?

Speaking of Saturday Nights, doesn't Stars in Their Eyes usually go in Millionnaire place, with millionnaire where single was, and thus a full schedule?

Perhaps they should have savedthe kylie show until the single slot next saturday.

Oh dear how awful I have not found one decent song in the 20 that were in today's Record of the Year Countdown. To me 50 Cent, Eminem, Beyonce, most of the stuff in there is not music... a programme like this should be waking the country up to some real music.

Means absolutely nothing, but it should be a good programme.

ITV1 have begun their search for the 'Record of the year' 2003

Cat Deeley presented a 30 minute programme from the Madame Tussaurds Waxworks in London where the twenty nominees have to be whittled down to 10 acts for the live show to be broadcast next week (?)

You can view (and vote) for the record at www.itv.com/recordoftheyear but I hope you will notice that there are some important artists missing from the list. The obvious ones are Justin Timberlake, Will Young, Kylie, Gareth Gates and maybe artists like The Darkness and Coldplay!

Or have ITV compiled a list of artistes that they know they might be in with a fighting chance of getting for the live final?

And I wonder how many of them will actually appear. We may get Sneddon, the Cheeky Girls and Girls Aloud.

Interesting point about Justin, Kylie & Will Young. actually Will's new single 'Leave Right Now' is his first release this year. His last reason was this time last year.

Not sure about Sneddon, hasn't he already quit his pop career, if it can be called that. Will's song hasn't been out long enough to qualify I guess.

I am a bit shocked that the Darkness haven't gone into it somewhere. Either with Growing on me, or I believe in a Thing called love. I dont get why they have them in groups of four this year. Are the groups supposed to represent something?

What would be a better idea is to start things off with a web vote where people go online and can view 10 songs that were popular in each month, and having the top two going through the final countdown. From the 24, they have a show based on it, and viewers use all mediums to vote for the final ten that perform live on itv1 the following week.

How the hell did Westlife's beyond-crap version of what was a crap Barry Manilow song already get into the Top 10 contenders for Record of the Year?

Apart from pressure by the ever reliable BMG record label...

Or Daniel Bedingfield with a song that was released over a year ago? What gives?

If either of those songs wins, I'm never watching Record of the Year again.

Hope Fatman Scoop's "Be Faithful" trounces the pair of them.

If Westlife are in there with Mandy then Will should be there with "Leave Right Now" - this Record of the Year lark always seems to end up with the song that no-one thinks is going to win anyway.

Hardly a great cross section of the music of 2003 is it?
