Organizers for Band Aid 20 announce that Bono’s version of the line, “And tonight thank God it’s them instead of you,” will be used instead of the one recorded by Justin Hawkins. Participants, including Justin himself, do not necessarily agree with the decision.
Bono’s people say he definitely has to do that line. Justin’s version was brilliant, but they are adamant…I did it and I did it better than him. So, his management kicked up a stink. It obviously means a lot to him. It’s a valuable line for him, he needs it, so I think he’s going to fly back and try again to beat me…If not, they’re going to use the original one he did when he was my age.
