Surpassing many other strong competitors, singers Thu Thuy & Wanbi Tuan Anh triumphed in the category of 2009’s Most Promising Young Singer of the Làn sóng xanh/Blue Wave Awards.

On the morning of December 17 at the People’s Voice center, HCMC, the 2009  Blue Wave Music Awards’s press conference was held with the participation of 49 journalists. Other than publicizing this year’s program, the organizers also held an early voting session for 2009’s “Most Promising Young Singer”.

With 16 out of the 49 total ballots (including 3 blank ones), Thu Thuy won over Bao Thy‘s 9 votes, Dong Nhi‘s 8 votes and Minh Hang‘s 6 votes.

In the male category, although there were 4 nominees, the main competition centered around rocker Pham Anh Khoa (can he even be considered a young singer?) & Wanbi Tuan Anh. In the end, Wanbi won a close one with 20 votes, only 1 more than Anh Khoa’s.

Besides the Favorite Singer and Musician awards, people are also highly anticipating this year’s “Artist of the Year”. In the male category, the competition is between Dam Vinh Hung & Ha Anh Tuan, while the female category once again revolves around My Tam, Ho Quynh Huong, and Ho Ngoc Ha.

This year’s Awards Ceremony will also be held rather early compared to previous years on the date Dec 27, 2009 (6:30 PM) at the Lan Anh Center, HCMC.
