I must say, after going through the nominees I was very impressed with Diverse (www.facebook.com/diversepopgroup.eddiezach). Those young dudes can sing and write. Be on the look out for them to make some noise in the up coming years. Ike may have a Lady Gaga night along with Boy Wonder... just my predictions. We will find out the facts pretty soon. Should be a fun time!
