BTW, I have done this (in a way) fairly recently you know:

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/forums/s...820&highlight=

Admittedly there are more female than male performers in the toip ten I out together, but still.
I predict the three guys who made that top ten, get high placings in this one too:

MJ
Bowie
Dylan
