Pink Floyd Top Contactmusic.com Live 8 Poll

Live 8 is over and now it's all down to the politicians to make decisions that could change the world at the G8 Summit later this week (begs06JUL05), but didn't the rockers, rappers and pop stars do well?

Ten cities cross the world staged amazing shows - from Tokyo, Japan to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - but just who made their mark on the global radio show?
