LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT. This year’s Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Jose Mari Chan.

Si Christian Bautista ang lone male singer sa tribute number para sa veteran balladeer-composer; kasama sina Angeline Quinto, Princess Velasco, at Yeng Constantino.

Nanalong Male Recording Artist of the Year noong 2010 si Christian for his Romance Revisited: The Love Songs of Jose Mari Chan, na revival ng mga pinasikat na awitin ni Jose Mari.

Last night, muli ring ipinarinig ng mahuhusay nating singers ang well-loved hit compositions ni Jose Mari, tulad ng "Afraid for Love To Fade,” “Can We Just Stop and Talk A While,” "A Love To Last A Lifetime,” "Tell Me Your Name,” "Beautiful Girl," at "Be Careful With My Heart.”

Masayang-masaya rin si Christian nang tanggapin ang kanyang awards bilang Male Pop Artist of the Year at Pop Album of the Year for Outbound.

Si Angeline Quinto naman ang nanalong Female Pop Artist of the Year para sa Fall In Love Again ng Star Records.



NOVELTY WINNERS. Tatlong panalo naman ang sunud-sunod na tinanggap ng grupong Wonder Gays para sa album nilang Blind Item: Best Novelty Album, Novelty Song of the Year, at Novelty Artist of the Year.

Malaking tagumpay ng grupo ang pagkapanalo nila over a formidable co-nominee, ang Kendeng-Kendeng ni Willie Revillame.

Among the veterans, Concert King Martin Nievera scored a double win: Male Concert Performer of the Year for his Tribute concert and Revival Album of the Year for Mga Awit Ng Damdamin.

Magandang pagkakataon din na ang panganay na anak nina Martin at Pops Fernandez na si Robin Nievera ang nagwaging Best New Male Recording Artist for his debut album Robin Nievera Overwait; in a tie with DK Valdez (It’s All About Love).

Acoustic artist Noel Cabangon won two awards para sa kanyang Panaginip album: Acoustic Album of the Year and Male Acoustic Artist of the Year.

AWARD FOR CONCERT PERFORMANCES. Unang taon ito ng pagbibigay-parangal ng PMPC Star Awards for Music para sa concert acts and performers.

Nanalong Concert of the Year ang tinampukan ni Jose Mari Chan at ng The Company na It’s Complicated, a production of Beginnings at 20 Plus, Inc. and Star Express.

Nanalo rin ang The Company bilang Group Artist of the Year for Lighthearted 2 (Viva Records).

Ang Eat Bulaga! duo na sina Jose Manalo at Wally Bayola ay itinanghal na Duo Concert Performer of the Year para sa kanilang Jose & Wally: Party for Every Juan.

For Music Video of the Year, it’s “Where Do I Begin?" featuring Gary Valenciano and directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.

Absentee winner si Sarah Geronimo, Female Concert Performer of the Year para sa What Love Is; gayundin sina Lea Salonga, Sharon Cuneta, at Zsa Zsa Padilla na pinagkalooban ng Natatanging Alagad ng Musika award.

Zsa Zsa is still in the U.S. recuperating from her kidney operation at ni-represent siya ng anak niyang si Karylle.

Wala namang um-attend para kay Sharon kaya kinanta na lang ng back-up singers ang kanyang “Mr. DJ,” prompting co-emcee Maja Salvador to joke, habang kausap si Pops, na gusto rin niyang maging singer and sang a few lines of Sharon’s song to the delight of the audience.

Katuwang nina Pops at Maja na nag-host ng Star Awards for Music ang Kapamilya young actor na si Xian Lim.

Bukod sa special award for Jose Mari Chan, nagsilbing highlight ang parangal para sa mga Natatanging Alagad ng Musika na kinabibilangan ng mga composers na sina Boy Christopher, Lito Camo, at Vehnee Saturno.

Para sa iba pang special awardees ay inawitan sila ng kani-kanilang anak tulad ni Isabella para kay Kuh Ledesma, Karylle for Zsa Zsa Padilla, Paolo Valenciano for Gary V., at Robin Nievera for Martin and Pops Fernandez.

Hiwalay na tinawag at binigyang parangal ang mag-asawang Ogie Alcasid at Regine Velasquez-Alcasid.

May mensahe si Ogie na makatuturan para sa pagpapasulong ng Orihinal na Musikang Pilipino (OPM). Tuwang-tuwa naman si Regine sa mga mahuhusay na anak ng mga singers na nauna sa kanya.
