    Flocks of teenyboppers winged it down to Pattaya recently for the first Pop Music Awards 2009, lining the front of the stage at Bali Hai Cape and swooning in the strong sunlight as they waited patiently to catch a glimpse of Korean boy band 2PM and upcoming star AJ.

    Themed “No Music No Life”, the event was a lively affair, with bright lights and lots of music.

    It kicked off at 3pm with a plethora of Thai popsters taking to the stage to perform two or three songs. Among those drawing loud screams were Dan Woradej, Ben Chalathit, Girly Berry, Laolom, C-Quint, Academy Fantasia’s Look Pong and Padcha, One-Two-Three-Soul, Slot Machine, Brandnew Sunset, Knock the Knock, The Richman Toy and Cha-Em.
