UK Music Week

Today (Sunday) on UK radio the "Top 40 Greatest UK Artists Of All Time" chart was announced as part of UK Music Week 2007 - a celebration of the best of UK music.  Over 200 UK radio stations were involved and fans were invited to vote for their favourite UK artists.

Well, I'm really pleased to let people know that Jamiroquai finished at number 2 (yes, number 2) in this chart.  The winner was Will Young.  This is a fantastic result for the band and I am sure they appreciate and thank everyone who voted for them.  For those interested, Jamiroquai finished in 14th place last year.

OMG! Thanks to everyone who voted can't believe this. Don't think we've ever come so high in a poll voted for by the public(please correct me if i am wrong!)....usually they pick some cheesy rubbish but now it seems they've come to their senses alongside us fans! :-)

Wowwwwwww, great!! this is the power of fanlove for great musicians!

so proud of all of us...I dind't make it to vote sigh...but now my guilty feeling flowed away!
Congrats

what a great result will young was always going to beat old JMQ because of the mass audience after pop idol but even so it is nice to see to credible artists ranking in the top

1 in 08!

Excellent and Fantastic

=)

Good stuff..but jamiroquai are much better than will young so why not no 1
ah well 2 is still pretty great

CONGRATUUUUULLLAAAAATIONNNSSSSSSS kami is the best band!!!!!!!!!!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY

Will Young is a Jamiroquai fan, too- he's mentioned it on a number of occasions, so I suppose they can take credit for being an influence, haha. It should be the other way round, if anything, but to be at 2 is still something special!! Congratulations to all.

Right on cheeba...suspicious indeed...The Greatest UK Artist Ever (for 2 years in a row) with a comfortable 3 albums under his belt and without having written one song on any of them by himself...sort of takes the shine off Jamiroquai comng second for me...but still congrats

CONGRADULATIONS TO JAMIROQUAI AND EVERYONE THAT VOTED. JAMIROQUAI IS STILL NUMBER ONE IN MY BOOK!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure the guys laugh a lot seein this top... Something stupid...

A GREAT RESULT FOR A GREAT BAND!
CONGRATULATIONS!
Dedication, hard work, and devotion to the things u want to see happen r the rite prize for U

Fantastic position to come as us fans have helped make this happen!! Although I would not feel a tad bit disappinted,if the band had came second to Oasis,maybe Duran Duran...but Will Young? CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!

CONGRATS JAMIROQUAI! Good result ;-)

...but YOU ARE Always @ first place for me ^_^


LOVE LOVE LOVE

Wow! I wasnt expecting n.2 at all! :D

who is Will Young?!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS! Jamiroquai are still being a very popular finest band around the world. Not like anothers stupids and plastics little bands that are crap.

Awesome!

Congratulations!!! I'm very glad for them!
Next year Jamiroquai will be 1rst ;)

well deserved and i was not expecting that! recognition, wahoo!

Fab result!!! I love Jamiroquai - far better than loads of these new kids on the block bands which all sound the same. Will Young will always get votes:-) he must have that sort of face that makes people vote for him. He does write his own stuff now so I think he deserves one of the top ten.

Wow i wasn't expecting something like this...Jamiroquai at second place...not bad...
Who's Will Young???

yay :)

A well deserved result for Jamiroquai!

That is great news!

Absolutely Brilliant..keeps us going while we wait for the next album!!Great News!

Once again: Who is Will Young?

Will Young is a bloke who won pop idol quite a few years back. Well congrats to Jamiroquai (who should be number 1!) Maybe next year. I'm just glad there are a lot of older talents on the list and not just some new groups who only got votes because they are on the music scene at the moment!

Thats put a smile on my face! :)

Great result!

What a joke! Not even our beloved jamiroquai deserve to be in the top ten. Thats just being honest!

What...love Jamiroquai up there...but...no Lewis Taylor...No Jamie Lidell...and....God...Gulp...No ....Average White Band?

NO....AVERAGE WHITE BAND?...they were the forerunners..of....Jamiroquai.

Yessssssssssssssssssssssss, I should bl**dy think so too !!! This is more like it

. . . ssssshhhhhh !!! Who is humming 'Land of Hope and Glory' ??? Me of course !!!

How savvy it is that Will also talks about saving "Planet Earth" !! Will seems like the UK version of our "Donny Osmond" phenomenon. Kinda Faddish....therefore making Jamiroquai coming in at #2 the "real" #1 position based on all the skill from the band we've heard and enjoyed thru the years. Not to forget to mention the JAMILY!!!!!
