Did Joss Stone actually win "Best Urban Act" at the Brits, or is the entire world just playing an elaborate practical joke on us? She shouldn't have even been nominated for that category, let alone win the damn thing.

Jesus wept.

It's a shame Girls Aloud left empty-handed, but since the Best Pop Act award was voted for by the public, I'd've been extremely surprised if it was won by anyone other than McFly.

Well, 2005 hasn't got off to a brilliant start in the bands-staying-together stakes, has it? First Busted (sniff), and now the lovely Mis-Teeq have decided to go their separate ways.

We can't say it came as a huge surprise, to be honest. They didn't really reappear much over here since their record label went bust, and we felt certain that if they were really making inroads in the States, we'd probably have heard more about it.

We shan't cry about it, because that's not our way; we will simply remember the good times. For example:

"Mis-Teeq with the bump and flex!"
"It's the Mis-Teeq ladies - we're coming back strong!"
"So-so-so scandalous..."

And never underestimate the value of a self-referential lyric:

"A one night stand just ain't enough..." (from 'Scandalous', not 'One Night Stand' - ha ha!)

Alesha, Sabrina, and (to a lesser extent, because you never did very much) Su Elise, Panda Pops salutes you. God speed in your future endeavours.
