The "Zing Music Awards" kicked off its second season on November 7.
The awards honor local singers and bands that are online listeners' favorites, as measured by votes and downloads of top 10 albums, songs and video clips from November 7 until January on the website http://awards.zing.vn.
Awards will be given to male and female singers in categories such as "Top 10 of the Year" and "Most Favorite."
This year, there will be an award for "Most brilliant new artist" voted by the netizens. The winner of this award must be a female singer younger than 30 years old and a male singer younger than 35 years old, and could be chosen from the top 40 artists tallied by the web site.
First runner-up of Vietnam Idol 2010, Van Mai Huong, could win this award, because her first music single "Neu nhu anh den" (If you come) has attracted more than 15 million views and has remained in top three most wanted songs on the website for the past three months.
The "Most Impressive Performance Style" will be eliminated from this year's award categories.
The award winners will be announced at a gala party to be held at Hoa Binh Theater on January 8, 2012.
