The 34th Golden Melody Awards 

The Golden Melody Awards, Taiwan's equivalent of the Grammy Awards, were established in 1990 with the aim of encouraging musical talents as part of the government efforts to recognize outstanding achievements of the local pop music industry.

The annual presentation ceremony held in May or June is televised live and features a red carpet as well as performances by prominent musicians.

The first Golden Melody Awards ceremony was held on June 1, 1990 by the Government Information Office, which was merged into the Ministry of Culture in late 2012.

After the 1998 ceremony, the organizers canceled the restriction on the nationality of the entrants to encourage more musical talents to participate in the musical gala.

To reflect the diversity of the Taiwanese community, the organizers added five more awards in 2003 — Best Taiwanese Male Singer, Best Taiwanese Female Singer, Best Hakka Singer, Best Aboriginal Singer and Best Instrumental Album.
