Singaporean Mandopop singer JJ Lin was nominated for six major awards at the 29th Golden Melody Awards held last night, but went home empty-handed.
The singer was nominated for Best Mandarin Male Singer, Album of the Year, Best Composer, Song of the Year, Best Album Producer and Best Album in Mandarin.
JJ Lin’s latest album, Little Big Us, had performed spectacularly at the charts, and many had expected him to win big at this year’s awards.
However, he was beaten by Hong Kong singer Eason Chen for the Best Mandarin Male Singer and Album of the Year awards.
Another big winner was Taiwanese singer Crowd Lu, who won Best Composer and Song of the Year for his single ‘Fish’, which turned out to be one of the most popular Mandopop songs last year.
For the final two awards, veteran musician Jonathan Lee won Best Album Producer, while Lala Hsu took home the Best Album in Mandarin award.
