From the forums (original post):

Today's Irish Times reports that Morrissey has been nominated in the category of Best International Male along with Michael Bublé, Jay-Z, Paolo Nutini and Bruce Springsteen.

The list of performers tells you pretty much all you need to know about the caliber of the event...Florence & The Machine, Westlife, Pixie Lott, Paolo Nutini and The Script.

Unfortunately there is no chance to vote online for Mozzer's category. See the following..

10 Morrissey - Years of Refusal Universal
Stephen Morrissey é um cinquentão, mas não sossega. Years of Refusal é mais um trabalho em que o artista se esforça em dar a seu público algo digno e, na maior parte, acerta o alvo. Letras confessionais e boas melodias são parte de sua fórmula vencedora.

The Drums - Surf pop meets Factory Records w/Smiths influence

Putting aside NME's hyperbole in chasing the next big thing, they do hit on interesting bands once in a while.

Case in point: The Drums. Young band from Brooklyn that fuses 50s/60s surf pop with the Factory records sound, plus alpha. They cite The Smiths as an influence on their Myspace page. So do a thousand other bands, I'm sure, but I like what I hear. Not a bad looking bunch of lads either.

Their extensive tour even brings them to the Manchester Academy in Feb.
