if Brien Kennedy got 'life time achievement' award, does that mean he can stop making music now?

Yawn. Another blow to the promotion of new, original music.

Doubt there was anyone else left who hadn't already gotten one. Coming 7th at Eurovision must entitle you to it. Wait for Donna and Joe to get theirs next year...
