I've got this gridview and I need to make it have two columns, what should I change?

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True"
   AutoGenerateColumns="False" CellPadding="0" CellSpacing="0" CssClass="newstableposition"
   DataSourceID="WTDDataSource" EmptyDataText="<BR/><BR/>There are currently no artists."
   GridLines="None" HeaderStyle-Height="30px" HeaderStyle-HorizontalAlign="Left"
   HeaderStyle-VerticalAlign="Top" HeaderStyle-Wrap="false" RowStyle-HorizontalAlign="Left"
   RowStyle-VerticalAlign="Top" ShowFooter="True" Width="90%" >
   <PagerSettings Mode="Numeric" PageButtonCount="5" Position="TopAndBottom" />
   <PagerStyle CssClass="paginate" />
   <Columns>
      <asp:TemplateField>
         <ItemTemplate>
            <a href="/artist_buzz/artist_buzz_detail.aspx?artistID=<%# Eval("ArtistID")%>">
               <img alt="Artist Image" border="0" class="advisoryboardimgpad" src="<%# Eval("ContentServer") %>/images/artists/<%# Eval("ArtistThumbnailImage")%>" />
            </a>
            <br />
            <a href="/artist_buzz/artist_buzz_detail.aspx?artistID=<%# Eval("ArtistID")%>"><%# Eval("ArtistFirstName")%>&nbsp;<%# Eval("ArtistLastName")%></a><br />
            <span class="smallwhitetext10">
               <%# Eval("ArtistBandAffiliation")%>
            </span>
         </ItemTemplate>
      </asp:TemplateField>
   </Columns>
</asp:GridView>

In the item template you could put a table, or you can create two <asp:template> fields

I've tried that but I get the same data in each column, I need the next result in the second column...

This currently prints out two columns but the data is the same, is there a way to do a recordset.movenext or something like that? I need the paging and I don't want to have to reinvent the wheel.

If you are trying to make the gridview put two pictures side by side, then you are using the wrong control.  You may want to look into the repeater control.

The repeat and datalist controls do not have paging but the following tuturial will show you how to add paging to them.
