Popworld Name The Automatic Band Of The Year

Popworld has named The Automatic their Band Of The Year and caught up with the group in a best of ’06 themed Q&A. Asked about Michael Jackson’s odd comeback at the World Music Awards, Iwan Griffiths asked, “What comeback?” James Frost added, “I watched it and it was hilarious.” Rob Hawkins asked, “Wasn’t he incredibly bad?” Frost responded, “He did, like, two lines and he was surrounded by kids. Then the security came through the kids, got Michael out and the song carried on but it was just all the kids singing.” Iwan opined, “What a sick fu**, he’s let those kids down.” The transcript at popworld.com has since been removed.
