  • James mistakenly says 'erection' instead of 'election' could be a reference to the Channel V show "Jabba's Morning Glory" where James sometimes co-hosts. On the show, Jabba has a poll called the JMG Erection, where songs go up against each other in a sms competition to decide which film clip is to be played.
