The Best of 2012

Evening kiddo.

Well, what a year! This afternoon, the Big Top 40 counted down the biggest songs of 2012 with Gotye taking the top spot! Tonight… we look back at the best and worst of the last 12 months and it’s your call.

After 10pm, you’ll be having your say on best male, female, boyband, girlband and worst celebrity moment of 2012. Take a look at the contenders below.

Join me on Key 103 in Manchester, Rock FM in Lancashire, Radio Aire in Leeds, Hallam FM in Sheffield, Viking FM in Hull and across the UK on The Hits Radio.

Best Boy Band

One Direction – love them or hate them… they smashed America this year and cemented their place as the biggest boy band EVER!

The Wanted – They’ve also taken America by storm this year and created a bit of stir and In:Demand towers – in fact it was mayhem! Hundereds of screaming girls brought us to our knees when they were on this radio station.

McFly – the return of McFly! A ‘Best Of’ album and some new stuff – 2012 has seen the boys well and truly back in town.

Best Girl Band

Girls Aloud – The comeback queens of 2012. A new tour and new material, it was Girls Aloud that everybody was talking about this year.

Little Mix – They well and truly shook off the X Factor shackles  – Wings and DNA were huge hits and they earned legions of new fans.

Shooshe – Black Heart took the nation by storm. We loved it! We love them! Fancy them at the Girl Band of 2012?

 Best Male

Gary Barlow – Let’s face it… he WAS 2012. Organising the Jubilee concert to the filling the big chair on the mighty X. It’s been quite a 12 months.

Robbie Williams – Candy was a guaranteed number 1 for Robbie and the announcement of a massive European tour means he is back and means business.

Olly Murs – A big number 1, a smashing job hosting X Factor, touring with One Direction and supporting Robbie next year… Olly is surely an outsider.

Best Female

Rihanna – Three numbers… 7, 7, and 7. Her 777 tour saw her take in 7 shows in 7 countries in 7 days! Not too shabby. Diamonds was a monster hit and she’s announced a World Tour for 2013.

Emile Sande – Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games. Biggest show on earth. ‘Nuff said? A huge UK tour and a stellar performance on the final of the X Factor only adds to an amazing 12 months.

Taylor Swift – Bedding Harry Styles and having one of the biggest hits of the decade with We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together – you can’t not fancy Taylor as best female.

 Worst Celebrity Moment

The Naked Prince – Photos of Prince Harry appeared from a holiday in Las Vegas – much to the embarrassment of his Nan and much to the joy of women everywhere!

Justin Beiber throws up on stage – Poor little Justin! He threw up on stage in America after having “too much milk” according to his people. Likely story.

Helen Flanagan on I’m A Celeb – Oh Helen! She crumbled and embarrassed herself in front of the nation – who then voted for her to face the bush tucker trials time and time again. Poor sod.
