    I wonder what she’ll be wearing and if they’ll be any dramatic outfit changes. She’s so pretty and girly I’d love her to show us a different side of her beauty.

    This automatically means Banky would be getting an award. Just like they gave eLDee award for “most conscious song” at the headies. Anyways, they both look great and complement one another.

      but Eldee deserved it as long as 2010 by SS was not on the list.
