NU 107 Rock Awards 2010: Franco and Tanya Markova are big winners

NU 107 FM presented its 17th Rock Awards last night, October 29, 2010, at the NBC Tent, honoring the best of the best in rock music.

The 5-man rock band Franco bagged 4 awards, 3 of which were major ones: Album of the Year, Artist of the Year and Song of the Year.

Also a big winner was the band Tanya Markova who won Best New Artist, Best Live Act and the Best Music Video award, which was presented by (wow!) "video expert" Hayden Kho Jr, who received loud cheers from the audience.

Hosted by "Beauty Queen" star Iza Calzado, the 2010 Rock Awards was one star-studded event with lots of performers and celebrities. It's already the last and final Rock Awards because NU 107 is reportedly going to have a major reformatting.

Aside from Hayden Jr, also in attendance were KC Concepcion, Anne Curtis and boyfriend Erwan Heussaff, couple Heart Evangelista and Daniel Matsunaga, Tim Yap and a lot more.
