2009 StarShine Magazine Music Award Winners Include Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Jesse McCartney & more

The 2009 StarShine Magazine Music Awards took place online between October and November.  Thousands of fans voted for their favorite artists in what proved to be the magazine’s tightest race to date!  The delay in announcing the results was due to StarShine’s efforts to get acceptance speeches from the winners to no avail.  Between tight schedules and publicists not cooperating, we weren’t able to make it happen.

Lady Gaga was the big winner this year with a total of 5 awards including Favorite Female Artist, Best New Artist, Song of the Year for “Poker Face”, Best Dance Song for “Just Dance” and Album of the Year for her debut The Fame. Gaga only lost one award, and that was surprisingly to teen heartthrob, Jesse McCartney, who received Artist of the Year over her with only 3% more votes!  McCartney also takes home Favorite Male Artist beating out Michael Bublé.  Katy Perry won Best Pop Song for “Hot N Cold” while newcomer Jessie James grabbed Best Ballad for “I Look So Good Without You”.

Canadian rock band Hedley won Best Rock Song for “Never Too Late”.  The obscure indie band, 100 Monkeys, fronted by Jackson Rathbone of “Twilight” fame nabs two awards for Favorite Band and Breaking Artist.  For Best Live Show, StarShine’s reader favorite–Backstreet Boys take the win; beating out top-selling touring acts, Michael Bublé and Katy Perry.
