Sting And Mccartney Up For Classical Awards

British music legends STING and SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY have successfully crossed from rock to classical music, after landing nominations for the Classical Brit Awards. A collection of the lute music created by the POLICE frontman and MCCartney's oratorio will battle it out with more traditional artists for the Best Album award at next month's (3MAY07) ceremony at London's Royal Albert Hall. The pair's fate will be decided by listeners of British radio station Classic FM, who get to vote for the prize. Other nominees for awards include glamorous Welsh mezzo-soprano KATHERINE JENKINS, Welsh tenor BRYN TERFEL, Scottish violinist NICOLA BENEDETTI, Mexican tenor ROLANDO VILLAZON, and UK choir THE SIXTEEN. Hollywood music men JOHN WILLIAMS and JAMES NEWTON will battle it out for the Soundtrack Composer of the Year award, for their scores for MUNICH and THE VILLAGE, respectively.

Paul will lose as usual. He is always nominated but never wins. The King of Runners-Up. Look Yoko Ono has Grammy Award for the Album of the Year - "Double Fantasy" (John's famous return with seven songs after five times of silence) while the greatest Beatles solo album of all times - "Tug of War" lost.In a way music awards are a bit about manipulation. It's always policy of the moment and for U2 it is questionable whether the best man won... I suppose Classic Award will go to someone who is neither Paul nor Sting.
