It's been a milestone year for Jay Chou. The Asian pop sensation marked a decade in the music business with his 10th studio album and clinched the top awards at his home island's 22nd Golden Melody Awards on Saturday.

The songwriter and singer picked up the best Mandarin album and best Mandarin male singer trophies for his recent release Cross-generation.

Industry veteran Jonathan Lee also had a strong showing though he didn't make an appearance at the ceremony. He swept Song of the Year, Best Composer and Best Lyricist for his single Jonathan's Song.

The award for Best Mandarin Female Performer went to Hong Kong's Karen Mok, who showcased her jazzy and laid-back vocals on the CD Precious.

Taiwan's Eric Hung was named best producer for the album Flower of Love, which drew inspiration from the classic songs of his father, legendary Taiwan singer Hung I-feng, who passed away last year.
