yay! Well done boys. =)
mrsvalo88 on February 29th, 2008 09:19 pm (UTC)
yayyy!
I'm so happy! and I'm glad I put my vote in! The boys deserve it all even the world:D
Linda, Muffinmondmusik on February 29th, 2008 09:22 pm (UTC)
yeeeh
I hope they will be happy about that! :)
tarja_s_turunen on February 29th, 2008 09:23 pm (UTC)
And I am very happy for Tarja too. She deserves it! Sorry because this has nothing with HIM but I had to say it *blushes*. At the best Finnish keyboarder i was expecting Tuomas... because i know how many fans he has and he is a very good keyboarder of course. But Burton is a very good one as well. So it is very good he reached the 2nd place *jumps*. I am sad because of our genius of Linde :( He deserved the first place, isn't it? We all know he is a genius on his guitar job. Well done Mige, well done Gas! And in the end... with all my heart, WELL DONE Ville! Well done because of Venus Doom as well! My love and my respect for this band has no end! it is day by day growing. Thank you, HIM

ooh congrats to the boys!
ema_low_fix on February 29th, 2008 09:33 pm (UTC)
yeah I knew Burton was going to lose to Tuomas that was a given but #2 is pretty good. Of course Ville won best vocalist, if he hadn't I don't know what I would have done with myself. I'm not happy about Tarja winning stuff, I was never a fan of her just the boys.
Carla Rettich: Adorableshadowdoomed on February 29th, 2008 09:35 pm (UTC)
OMFG!
I don't have words to express how proud I am!
I'm way beyond proud.


Best Finnish vocalist of 2007
1. VILLE VALO (H.I.M.)


I actually screamed when I read this!
He definitely deserved it.
sharon_d_adel on February 29th, 2008 09:37 pm (UTC)
I'm so proud of this. because it's not the sh***y award like Grammy or any MTV awards.
Well done boys, they all deserved to win. I am sad too about our GREAT Linde, the greatest guitarist i ever seen in my 21 years of life. He is like on the 1st place for me, he is amazing and no one can deny it. Congratulations Gas! And Mige!!! Congratulations to Burton too, I expected Tuomas on 1st place too, even if our Burton is as good as him, but Tuomas is like a god of keyboards in Finland, so people voted in despair for Tuomas.

And... Congratulations to the most special singer in this world of metal, Ville. I knew he would win, he is absolutely the most amazing and unique voice in Finnish metal, the most special and sensitive voice, and here no one can deny it.
Congratulations for Venus Doom. Who didn't expect it to win? It is obvious.

HIM really are the gold of Finland, and they will always be.
sharon_d_adel on February 29th, 2008 09:39 pm (UTC)
And as a bracket, Congratulations for (in my opinion) the queen of Finnish metal- Tarja.
She deserved to win those cathegories.
Irenairena_aneri on March 1st, 2008 04:22 am (UTC)
Yes she did! Nightwish + HIM + Apo + MARCOOOO + Tarja = YES
nicotiana666nicotiana666 on March 2nd, 2008 11:07 am (UTC)
Yeah and se was the only woman on the singers' list... we need more female metal vacalists!
Irenairena_aneri on March 2nd, 2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
I'll move there and become famous, just for you. <3 =P
nicotiana666nicotiana666 on March 2nd, 2008 05:19 pm (UTC)
Haha... Yay!

I could become famous asel XD I have a band, but our bass player left us *sniff*... or actually we kinda kicked her out, but the point is that we don't have one right now.

Jarrod of Usherhome_of_usher on March 1st, 2008 04:20 am (UTC)
Awesome! So glad they got so many good nominations.

I kinda wished Poisonblack was able to place Somewhere on the lists. Maybe even Newcommers. Ah well. They're still mostly unheard of.
Irenairena_aneri on March 1st, 2008 04:22 am (UTC)
I <3 Poisonblack. :DDD
Morgainekathla on March 1st, 2008 12:07 pm (UTC)
Ooh! That's so great. :D (first place woulda been better, but this is very good none the less). I'm happy for the boys.
Kinda sad NW won all them first place things... I really don't like the band now with Anette. (She reminds me too much of Sharon den Adel of WT). :x

Anyway, way to go guys. :D *thumbs up* X3
kadotettukadotukseen on March 1st, 2008 01:07 pm (UTC)
Yay, best finnish album 2007 and best finnish vocalist, so good!

I'm also proud of seeing Entwine in that lists, those guys are amazing.
But I think Lauri doesn't worth being in 2nd position while Mika is on 8th.

thanks for posting!
rockhard050 on March 1st, 2008 01:35 pm (UTC)
