Anyone care to make predictions????

  • Do we know who the judges are? If it’s just Midi, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a few Midi-friendly names who pop up amongst the winners. Contribution to Chinese Rock for example, seems made for Cui Jian.

    Album of the year should go to LOS’s Next Episode: Lord Smart vs. Dr Jin, but I’m not sure it will.

    the judges are 76 people in this rock music industry from all over the country, including a 8-people standing committee. e.g. Shen Lihui from Modern Sky, Li Hongjie from Inmusic, Lv Bo from Screaming Records, Zhang Fan from Midi School and so on.

  • Hi there,

    as being part of the jury, I have to admit, that I am not aware of the actual runner ups for the individual awards 😉

    but, be surprised …
