    Q. Hey there, Maybe people out there were like me too. The question is was the Grammy voted by public or judge by jury? ps: what is the stands for a.k.a?

    The Oracle replies:

    The Grammy Awards submissions are reviewed by an extensive panel of music industry experts. Works are then voted for and they make up the nominations. This shortlist is sent to members of the Recording Academy who vote secretly.

    Before the reviewing stage of the process eligible nominations are actually entered for consideration by a record label or individual. In case anyone is wondering no, Coldplay did not enter themselves! A.K.A means also known as and furthermore P.K.A means professionally known as.

    Q. At Live 8 in 2005, did Coldplay stick around after their performance to see Pink Floyd reunite? Are they fans of The Floyd?

    The Oracle replies:

    Continuing with a Live 8 question... Yes they are fans of Pink Floyd but Coldplay had a show that night at Glasgow's Hampden Park as they were still on tour at the time so had to leave soon after their own performance therefore missing the historical moment.

    Q. Hello Oracle! I hope you will answer this question for me. At the 2003 Live 8 show, Chris sings an extra line in the end of In My Place that goes, "I like it, I like it," etc. Why did he add the extra line? Thanks!!

    The Oracle replies:

    It was 2005 not 2003 but the extra line Chris added to In My Place was taken from Status Quo's Rocking All Over the World. He added it because, well, all the artists taking part were literally rocking all over the world as it was a global concert taking place almost simultaneously in 10 different places.
