Ms. Dynamite? Tee hee!

Honestly, you wait nine years for a woman to win the Mercury Music Prize, and then two in a row come along.
As I said to a couple of friends yesterday, when does the favourite ever win the Mercury? And so the bookies proved to be the kiss of death for The Streets. Ms Dynamite was only fourth favourite, at 6/1 yesterday. She won't have done herself any harm with her appearance on Monday night's Johnny Vaughan show, where she was really interesting and talkative, with Elvis Costello on too. Now there's a duet waiting to happen....
(Only 44.35% of people think that "the Mercury music prize jury got it right", as it stands on the BBC website at 08.00.)
