Not really. Look how interested you were though! HOWEVER, THIS COULD BE TRUE! It's up to you to make sure that your favorite band is the one reported on BY YOU in a featured spot on CNN.com/iReport. It's kind of like a contest, except that after you create and submit a video about your favorite artist(s) of 2008, it gets viewed by tons of people even if you aren't selected.
If you read this news post, you know that CNN is giving you a chance to talk about your favorite band or album of 2008. Screw street teaming and using your avatar to promote a band! Get them on CNN.com!
It's kind of a cool way to get a band out to an audience that really may have not payed attention or heard of otherwise. AP.net members are passionate about their music, so get on this and tell people why you love your favorite band.
