Delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 32nd Golden Melody Awards ceremony will take place at the Taipei Music Center on Saturday. Taiwanese-language singer Olivia Tsao and Aboriginal-language singer Sangpuy are leading this year’s nominees with eight nods each.
The six nominees for the Best Mandarin Album include: Wan Fang’s “Dear All,” Shi Shi’s “Where is SHI?” Hebe Tien’s “Untold,” Soft Lipa’s “Home Cookin,” William Wei’s “Sounds of My Life,” and James Li’s “10 Days.” The Special Contribution Award is going to veteran rock icon Lo Ta-you for his influence on Mandopop over the past 40 years. Lo is best known for his 1982 classic “Lukang, the Little Town” and a dozen hits.
Although Taiwan already lowered the COVID-19 alert from level 3 to level 2, the Ministry of Culture pointed out last month that the physical show will be partially virtual, with a limited number of participants at the scene to avoid crowd gatherings, and some of the performances may be pre-recorded.

Thanksgiving Day in the US is a day for family, fun and, most importantly, feasting. No Thanksgiving spread would be complete without a massive roasted turkey at its center.
