Hmm.. I'm a little disapointed with the results especially with Jolin's winning the Best Mandarin female singer ;) Yes, she does have many advantages but I don't think she really deserves this award! I thought the album would be better and that her singing is mediocre! I was pinning for Penny to win the award because she can composed well and her vocals are good! Anyway, I'm quite surprised with Nicky winning the Best Mandarin Male singer but congrats! The nominates for this year best male mandarin singer were quite competitive and they were roughly of the same standard ^-^ Congratulation Sodagreen, I like the concept and the songs of their albums!!

Alternatives beat out the mainstream
Sunday June 17, 2007

The Golden Melody Awards have gradually been shifting from their focus on the big stars, and last night's show served to confirm this trend

In an evening dominated by alternative acts, Jay Chou (周杰倫) picked up his award for Best Single Producer, but it was independents who won big. Folk rock outfit Sodagreen won the coveted Best Band award, but even in the prestige categories such as Best Producer, independents dominated. And even in categories that are the exclusive realm of the big labels there were upsets, with South Korean Nicky Lee beating out six-time nominee David Tao for the best male Mandarin singer.

The 18th Golden Melody Awards, the music industry's night of backslapping and mutual congratulation, took place last night at the Taipei Arena (台北巨蛋). The annual event gives out awards to professionals making music in Mandarin, Taiwanese, Hakka and Taiwan's Aboriginal languages. This year, the nominees were drawn from record-breaking 8,103 entries by a 33-member panel of judges.

Despite afternoon showers thousands of teenagers and groupies laid siege to the stadium to ensure a good view, despite the absences of heavyweight pop idols such as Jay Chou and David Tao (陶?).

In this less than star-studded event, the two hosts, Momko Tao (陶子) and Patty Hou (侯佩岑) wearing NT$80 millions worth of jewelry, where the brightest stars on the red carpet dominated by alternative musicians and indie bands.

This year, the awards for artistic and traditional music were held earlier in the month, ensuring that the party last night went more smoothly with the absence of the non-pop crowd, who always looked so out of place among the glitterati.

Huang Chien-wei (黃建為), a college student whose folk debut Over the Way is inspired from the tranquil island life and rural landscapes, picked up the award for Best Newcomer early in the ceremony, setting the tone for what was to follow.

Lin Sheng-xiang (林生祥), considered by many as one of Taiwan's most original musicians, was awarded Best Hakka Singer and Best Hakka Album for Planting Trees (種樹). Lin used his acceptance speech to refuse the awards to signify his disapproval of the language-based categorizations used for the Golden Melody Awards. He announced that he would donate the prize money to four community groups working with Taiwan's agricultural communities, and expressed his support for the so called "rice bomber" Yang Ju-men (楊儒門). "It is music that gathers us here, not languages. So the event's subject should be the musical vocabulary rather than linguistic
differences," Yang said.

Always merging his music with sociopolitical messages, Lin has been a frequent GMA winner ever since the now disbanded Labor Exchange (交工樂隊) that was awarded major honors in 2000 and 2002. In 2005, Sheng Xiang and Water 3 (生祥與瓦窯3), Lin's music project with his long-term partner Zhong Yong-feng (鍾永豐) won Best Band, Best Hakka Album and Best Lyricist with Getting Dark (臨暗) that turns a sober gaze at globalization that sweeps the world.

In the Best Singing Group category, popular pub duo Hao-en (昊恩) and Puyuma songstress Jiajia (家家) took the trophy. The duo, breaking away from the stereotypes of Aboriginal music, have achieved considerable success on the pub circuit with their contemporary compositions fused with blues jazz, gospel and traditional folk music. (They are nominated for Best Mandarin Album, Best Singing Group, Best Producer and Best Composer). Folk rock outfit Soda Green picked up the highly coveted Best Band award. Having released four singles and two albums in two-years, Sodagreen had built up an audience base with campus tours and pub gigs and their self-titled debut album was nominated for the Best Composer and Best Band awards at last year's Golden Melody Awards.

Formed by the six members during college, the folk rock band Sodagreen was a campus music luminary at the National Chengchi University (政治大學) and frequent winner for the school's annual music competition. Their career breakthrough quickly came in 2004 when the band took the jury award at Hohaiyan Rock Festival (海洋音樂祭) and discovered by musician and producer Lin Wei-tse (林暐哲).

In the Taiwanese music category, five-time nominee Shih Wen-bin (施文彬) picked up best male singer and taime (台妹) prototype Jeannie Hsieh (謝金燕) won best female.

One of last night's biggest surprises of last night came when last year's Best Band winner Chairman (董事長) beat off Judy Chiang (江蕙), the uncontested reigning queen of Taiwanese-language music and walked home with the Best Taiwanese-language Album. "We never thought we would win and our first reaction was like the title of the album "Jin Ei Ah Gey Ei" [meaning "you're kidding" in Taiwanese]," said the band backstage.

At the end of the evening, the prestige categories offered few surprises, as Jolin Tsai (蔡依林) finally won a long-overdue award for best female mandarin singer, and the evening finished on a slight note of confusion when MC Hotdog got the Best Album award, which may simply have been done to make sure that established artists did not completely disappear under the landslide of independent artists.

this years awards were very disappointing.
Nicky for "Best Mandarin Male Singer" was not what i expected. i had many other expectations before him. i thought it would be either JJ, Gary or David. i think eithe JJ and Gary should have gotten it, not Nicky.
Jolin for "Best Mandarin Female Singer" was what i expected, but disappointing. her song "Wu Niang" was indeed good, but her vocals were not as strong as Penny's.

not only the awards itself, but the fashion at the awards were also VERY disappointing. no, not disappointing, it was HIDEOUS! for one thing, Jolin's plastic wrap of hers should have been burnt.

Jolin's probably one of the better dancers in terms of performing artists in Taiwanese/Hong Kong showbiz, but i wasn't impressed by her performance. Great singer though =]

yea i second you! i am rather disappointed with the results of Jolin winning the best mandarin female singer, i was hoping that Penny could win it instead, she can really composed great songs and her vocals are great!
i'm quite surprised with Nicky winning the best mandarin male singer too but i still think he deserves it, he really sings well. yea, the nominates for the best male singer were very competitive this year, almost all of them are really talented ppl.
and yay! a big big congrats to Sodagreen and MC Hot Dog
