Sir DaveGrooveSlave of Lancashire/London/Cardiff
Dancing since 15 months; Clubbing since fifteen; Djing /rocking the house for the last 15 years. I've: • Djed with sooooo many bands • Played at all the venues [It is just cardiff innit] • Danced/djed all over the world (including Wigan Casino, The Hacienda, Berlin, Lisboa, Frankfurt, Rio di Janeiro) • Know most of the stars And not 1 nomination.

Leanne - Cardiff
We need more categories. For example best MC, there are so many MC's in Cardiff and for different types of music. There are so many at the top of their game but for different types of music. The same goes for DJ's etc.

James London
Lostprophets Rocks!! It's so good to know that they've won the best album and the rock =D!!

John Widdup from cardiff
killer tomato should have won it but at least he still knows jon anderson

Charlie from leeds
Best MC in the WORLD is humurak d gritty he is da best by far

Jordan Allen Cardiff
Humerack d gritty is heavy, cant wait till may tha 10th wiv skinnyman, gonna b sick

Phil, Cardiff
Sadly, these awards like most of the 'official' Welsh Music scene are pointless. Lets be frank what support or encouragement is there for the countless Welsh acts out there in a set of nominations like we had this year? Its a dreadful, dreadful shame.

Rae, NZ
bethan and Huw are really bland typical radio 1 presenter fodder. However more people will inevitably listen to them because they are on Radio One. Adam walton is the closest you'll get to a Welsh John Peel.

Matthew Edwards from Lampeter
How come Bethan and Huw win the radio show award every year? Their show isn't bad, but Adam Walton plays better Welsh music and a lot more of it. I spose thats Radio One for you :)

Richy - Cardiff
Go on Cool House!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

James Cardiff
what the hec is this world coming too?Goldie lookin chains fall into the best dance act,now come on people who voted I want to be proud to be Welsh NOT EMBARESSED....IM SURE WE COULD DO BETTER THAN THIS we have gone back to far were meant to go forward...

Kevin James, Cardiff
Lost Prophets - shouldn't they also have got an award as Best Pretty Boy Band pretending to be Americans?

Mark Bennett
Mike Peters overlooked again?????????? Surely a mistake.

liz clugston winchester
dj killer tomato is the man. What talent one to watch

Frankie Lodge, Newport
i haven't been invited to this years awards, but I'll be singing in the arcade tomorrow if anyone wants to come down. about time the glc got recognition for what they've given newport. i've still got that badge on my hat of luck. frank

misti from dallas
the alarm rocked with their new cd "in the poppyfields". they have my vote every time go mike peters

Mihang Tu
Hi, I hear Blodyn Tatws on Radio1, I think is great!

Peter Thomas Machen
Same old places and faces. Not quite a stitch up but putting up names from the start works against other artists and venues. It's a bit like a ballot paper with only half the candidates listed. Don't follow the herd but select other and type in your own choice. My vote for a venue under 500 is The Point in Cardiff Bay.

Jenkins from Cardiff
Best Mc deffo Humurak D Gritty/best up and comimg dj Killer tomato
