It’s all explained there, even a few posts from Tempest himself, but basically here’s the lowdown:
in Helsinki, infront of more than 4000 people (voters) and won the
competition. There are good documents on this. You can of course
believe that the whole event never took place, but would require heavy
dose of self-deluding and not doing your research properly.”
It’s unclear whether Tempest will go through the courts at this point in time, since he states he doesn’t have the time or the money to take on a major music label. He says much more in his Digg post, which I linked above.
I haven’t heard Timbaland’s or Nelly’s response to all this, and I’m unsure if they’ll even respond at all, but if they do, please comment on this article and let me know [or I will post it, if I find it first].
