Sa Male and Female Faces of the Night category, nagwagi naman sina Jericho at Sarah, respectively.

OTHER FAVORITES. Sa ikalawang pagkakataon ay nanalo sa kategoryang Female Acoustic Artist of the Year si Aiza Seguerra para sa album niyang Aiza Seguerra Live ng Star Records. Nag-tie sila ni Sabrina for I Love Acoustic Too ng MCA Music, Inc.

Mula naman sa GMA Records, nagwagi bilang Compilation Album of the Year ang The Best of Mga Awit ng Kapuso, at ang Kasiping, featuringLa Diva, bilang Music Video of the Year. Ang MTV na ito'y idinirek ni Louie Ignacio.

Ang La Diva rin ang napiling winner sa kategoryang Duo/Group Artist of the Year para sa kanilang self-titled album mula sa GMA Records at Sony Music.

Sa mga kategoryang Rap, Jazz, Novelty, R & B, at Rock Artists and Albums ay hindi nakasipot ang mga winners, kundi man na-late ang mga ito at nagpasalamat na lang when it was their turn to deliver their thank-you speeches bilang presenters.

Tuwang-tuwa ang rapper-comedian na si Andrew E sa una niyang panalo ng Star trophy bilang producer ng rap album na Clubzilla under his Dongalo Wreckords label. Naka-tie nito as Rap Album of the Year ang Chika Lang 'Yon mula sa Alpha Records. Pero hindi personal na natanggap ni Andrew E ang kanyang trophy.

Young singer-performer Charlie Green, on the other hand, was nowhere nang tawagin siyang winner bilang Jazz Artist of the Year para sa A Friend Like You ng Viva Records.

Wala rin sa venue ang Novelty Artist na si Blakdyak who won for Sino Ba? ng Viva Records. Ang kanyang misis ang tumanggap ng parangal on his behalf.

In full force naman ang grupong Masculados Dos sa pagtanggap ng parangal para sa kanilang self-titled novelty album.

Kung si Andrew E ay humabol sa awards night, ang R&B winner namang si Jay-R ay isa sa pinakamaagang dumating kasama ang kanyang girlfriend na sa Krista Kleiner. Pero wala na rin siya nang tawaging winner sa kategoryang R&B Artist of the Year para sa Jay-R Sings OPM ng Universal Records.

EVENING WITH PILITA. Pinakatampok na bahagi ng Star Awards for Music ang pagkakaloob ng Lifetime Achievement Award sa isang institusyon sa larangan ng musika, si Ms. Pilita Corrales.

Nauna rito ang pag-awit ng La Diva ng medley of Pilita's well-loved songs, tulad ng "A Million Thanks To You," "Kapantay Ay Langit," "Usahay," among others.

Sa kanyang talumpati, nagpahayag ang tinaguriang Asia's Queen of Songs ng pasasalamat sa PMPC dahil naipagkaloob sa kanya sa unang pagkakataon ang parangal na ugnay sa kanyang propesyon sa daigdig ng musika.

"In the past, I have been receiving awards for the other things I do or other Lifetime Achievement awards, but this is the first time I am receiving an award for music. So I am greatly honored.

"Music is my life. My life is singing and learning songs. This is an important award that I will forever cherish," saad ni Ms. Pilita.

Nasa gabi ng parangal ang tatlong kaibigan ni Pilita: sina German Moreno, Freddie Aguilar, at ang sekretarya niyang si Ester bilang presenters. Hindi nakadalo ang dalawang anak ni Pilita na sina Jackie Lou Blanco at Ramon Christopher, pero masayang-masaya si Jackie Lou sa kanyang mga ipinahayag sa VTR tribute for her mom, kasama sina Kuya Germs at Ricky Reyes.

Ugnay rin sa temang "Celebration of OPM Music and Artists" ang pagpupugay sa mga mang-aawit na nagdulot ng karangalan sa bansa sa kanilang larangan, tulad nina Lea Salonga at Charice Pempengco.
