Who`d thought. Laughing yes I am a victim of RickRoll

Eighties pop singer Rick Astley has been nominated for best act at this year's MTV Europe Music Awards and it's all down to the internet phenomenon of 'Rickrolling'.

The web craze, whereby surfers were unwittingly led to Astley's hit Never Gonna Give You Up, has resurrected huge interest in the song and the singer.

Astley reached number one in the UK, as well as 15 other countries, with the pop song in 1987.

Astley is up against U2, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Green Day and Tokio Hotel.
The winner will be chosen by fans online and will be announced at the award ceremony in Liverpool on 6 November.

"Rick's fans have obviously decided that he deserves recognition as a pop icon and they are determined to make sure he wins on the night," said MTV's Richard Godfrey.

If you haven't been 'tricked' in to seeing Astley bust out his dance moves, you can watch it on YouTube.
Voting is currently open at the MTV awards website.


You can place your votes too, if you want vote for Rick or maybe someone else

I was a victim of Rickrolling as well, put me off him even more (not that I liked him first time round), so he wont be getting my vote.
