Celebrity Mickey Huang (黃子佼), who hosted the preview event and who will be hosting the award show for the ninth time later in the month, announced the recipients of the KKBOX Music Awards, which included 10 awards for chart-topping artists, one award for an indie artist and one award for best new artist.

The 10 chart-topping artists, in no particular order, were: Hebe Tien (田馥甄), Taiwanese rock band Mayday (五月天), JJ Lin (林俊傑), G.U.T.S. (兄弟本色), Nine One One (玖壹壹), Eric Chou (周興哲), G.E.M. (鄧紫棋), William Wei (韋禮安), Jay Chou (周杰倫) and Della (丁噹).

The KKBOX Indie Artist award went to No Party For Cao Dong (草東沒有派對) and the Best New Artist award went to Under Lover (地下情人).

The awards were given out based solely on the number of times the artists’ songs were played on the music app throughout the past year, without a panel of judges or any other factor shaping the list of winners.    [FULL  STORY]
