S.H.E. wins big at Singapore Hit Awards 2010; Hebe Tien holds back tears at mention of Selina

Taiwan pop trio S.H.E swept up five awards at this year's Singapore Hit Awards 2010 (SHA 2010) at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Friday.

Hebe Tien, the only S.H.E. member who was present at the event, collected the trophies for the Asia Media Award (Group), Best Group, Most Popular Group/Band, as well as the Y.E.S. 93.3FM Pick of the Pops: Song of the Year and Y.E.S. 93.3FM Pick of the Pops: Artiste with Most Chart Hits awards, on behalf of the group.

"If I had known I was going to receive so many awards, I wouldn't have worn such high heels!

"My legs are sore, my arms are sore, but I feel great!" joked Tien as she accepted S.H.E's fourth award for the evening.

Tien may have been overjoyed by the trio's performance at the awards, but she still looked a little subdued offstage, probably due to the fact that her group mate Selina Jen was still in hospital after an accident on the film set left her with severe burns.

The 27-year-old almost burst into tears when she spoke of her stricken group mate during her acceptance speech after receiving the award for Most Popular Band/Group, describing the award as being especially meaningful in these difficult times.

"Although we may not be able to do anything to alleviate the pain she is going through, but I hope we can be her pillar of strength and pray for her," said Tien to the cheers of the audience.

There were no surprises at the SHA 2010, with most of the favourites walking home with awards.

Taiwan star Jay Chou won the award for Album of the Year for his latest work "The Era", while Show Luo and Rainie Yang picked up the Most Popular Male and Most Popular Female Artiste awards respectively.

Singapore singer Tanya Chua was also a happy lady on Friday as she took home the awards for Best Local Artiste, Best Local Music Composition, Most Versatile Music Personality and the Asia Media Award (female artistes).

Other winners include Eason Chan, A-Mei, Magic Power, JJ Lin as well as Alien Huang, Soda Green and Y2J.

Singapore newcomers Zheng Ke Wei and Serene Koong got the nod as well for their efforts.

Zheng won the award for Local New Artiste - Media's Choice, while Koong picked up the awards for Meritorious Newcomer and Most Popular New Artiste.

"The path of music is always tough. [Winning this award] is definitely a motivation. I am very, very thankful!

"I treasure the great encouragement this has given me and it definitely gives me a lot of strength moving forward," Koong gushed at the reception after the awards, with a hint of redness in her eyes.

"I will continue to work hard!"

Besides the chance to see many of their favourite artistes in the flesh, audiences also enjoyed electrifying performances by most of the award winners, including a moving medley of songs from Taiwan crooner Jeff Chang, who won the Honorary Award.

Hebe Tien holds back tears at mention of Selina

The member of S.H.E fought back tears and reassured fans of fellow band mate, Selina Jen’s condition at the Singapore Hit Awards 2010

It was a particularly emotional night for Hebe Tien, one-third of Taiwanese Mandopop girl group, S.H.E, as she holds back tears and worries over Selina's health condition.

Dressed in a simple black dress adorned with tassels, the 27-year-old artiste who recently released her solo debut album declared that she felt "very honoured to be a member of S.H.E" onstage at the 16th Singapore Hit Awards 2010.

Thanking everyone for the support when she received S.H.E's Most Popular Group award, she reminisced about their early days and the hardships they underwent together. Tears started to form in her eyes at the mention of Selina, who was involved in a filming accident eight days ago.

"We have encountered hardships but we have walked through them, especially during this critical period. Selina, my fellow sister is now in the hospital. People grow from adversity and we will definitely walk through this."

Choked with emotion and tears, Hebe mentioned that Selina has lost her only protective barrier, which is her skin, and is in a "fragile state". Despite her burnt conditions, Hebe shared that Selina is still going strong and endearingly called her "my heroine" and "angel."

Selina suffered third degree burns on over 30% of her body and is still admitted in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Appearing more composed in a backstage interview with the media, Hebe revealed that Selina is now able to speak and take in small amounts of food.

She also commented that Selina is still in pain despite being on painkillers, "The surface areas of the burns are just too big. It's uncomfortable and she has to be consistently on painkillers. But the painkillers can't alleviate her suffering and I hope that everyone can support her."

Despite the pain and suffering, Hebe reassures that Selina is still very optimistic.

"Since the first day I saw her when the accident happened, she has been very optimistic. She also told us not to worry for her."

Talking about the various adversities encountered by her fellow band mates, Hebe says that Selina is fighting an obstacle now.

"There may be setbacks but we are not afraid. We will always have confidence to continue walking on."

Feeling particularly poignant at mention of Selina's current state, Hebe feels that this incident has taught her the importance of "living for the moment as accidents can happen anytime."

With her emotions still in a state of flux at the award ceremony, she confessed that it feels "rather complicated" when she has to go out for work assignments now.

The concerned singer said, "it's as if I left my heart in Taipei" and has plans to call home immediately after the award ceremony to check on Selina's condition.
