They were praised by the all-star judging panel for their “wide open, exuberant vocals” and for being “different to 99% of pop music”.

“Somehow we knew we were going to take it,” said the band’s lead singer Simon Maranga Nyarieko.

“Our song is the best thing that has ever been done in terms of music. We came thinking we were going to take the prize, but we were nervous. Now we have it,we are good to go!”Kudos guyz!!!!

LOS ANGELES, Calif.  ” There will be no guest appearances on “American Idol” for Britney Spears any time soon.

Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe told reporters on Thursday, he doesn’t believe the “…Baby One More Time” star is in the right shape to serve as a celebrity mentor for the singing hopefuls.


“Britney at this moment, I don’t think is well enough to do anything and I think she needs looking after rather than being pushed in front of the cameras or pushing herself in front of cameras,” Lythgoe said. “I thinks she needs to get herself together, bless her.”

Lythgoe noted that Spears would have been welcome last time around.

“I would have had Britney Spears last year for sure, when I thought she was trying to get it all back together again,” he said.Get yourself together girl!
