Awards: 2010 Meteor Music Awards Nominees

The nominees for this year’s IMRO Meteor Music Awards have been announced. There’s the usual names and faces as well as the total lack of David Geraghty in the Best Irish Male category. Jack L? Seriously? Didn’t he only release a Best of this year, and hasn’t released a successful single in years. The Awards Show will be held at the RDS on Friday, February 19 2010, and will be presented by Amanda Byram. Westlife, Snow Patrol, the Script, Florence and the Machine, Paolo Nutini, The Coronas, and Pixie Lott are all set to play live on the night.
