LOITS steals the show, EMA 2008
04-04-2008

After having performed at the Estonian Music Awards gala — the Estonian equivalent of Grammies — on Tuesday, April 1, Loits in cooperation with the rebel icon and cult author Sven Kivisildnik robbed the award for the best artist in the metal/punk category that should have rightfully belonged to the Industrial Metal band Finish Me Off. In the end it was, of course, FMO who took the award home.

“I was more than sure that I was invited to the event to give the award to Loits. That’s the only reason I went,” comments Kivisildnik to the news portal Delfi.

“We met Kivisildinik in the backstage during the EMA rehearsals, and that was where the plan for us to receive the award was conceived. Sven agreed to give it to us and us only. We willingly went along with the game, as several things had dampened our spirits that day. If others can play dirty behind the scenes, we thought, we’d do the same publicly. We took the whole thing with a sense of humour, yet seriously enough to hone the plan in detail,” commented Ahto-Lembit Lehtmets, the singer of Loits, to Delfi.

He doesn’t agree, though, that Loits was the only nominee worthy of the award. “All nominees deserved it, as well as several whose names were never mentioned. I sincerely hope that our tiny scandal will draw the spotlight to all of them. One thing’s for sure — the act was not devised against Finish Me Off, as the band will definitely receive more attention from the media now,” he states.
