Today I received this e-mail from one of the organizers regarding the world championships in London:
"I actually thought the Japan band was going to win......
They played the GBOB theme tune....
They announced the top 6
4 England (who were really good)
then got the judges on stage, we're all looking disappointed and thinking oh well....
Judge says "All three of us were unanimous about this decision, they were entertaining (at
which we looked hopefully at each other but then the Japan band was also entertaining) and then he
said something else, THEN he said "and they used instruments that no other band had used"
I started thinking 'Huh??'
then they said CHINA!!
We started jumping up and down and cheering and screaming like schoolkids hahahahaa
(2 rustic fans from Germany and me!)
The funny thing is (and i"ve videoed it so have proof) the MC introduced them as a band
from Shanghai and never mentioned China then hahahahahahahahaha
OK I'm taking the boys out to dinner tomorrow but now they are 'after' partying ;)
I'm truly amazed they won!"
Congratulations to China's own Rustic.
