The first round of 2013’s JSG Selections aired two nights ago on TVB Jade, but rather than hearing about viewers pumping up their fists in support for their favorite singers, many were left shaking their heads with disappointment.
Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), who won a golden song award for his hit single “The Final Blessing” <最後祝福>, the ending theme song to TVB’s A Change of Heart <好心作怪>, was under fire for his poor “singing craftsmanship.” Performing the song live after receiving his award, netizens exclaimed that Bosco “could not hit any of the notes” and some commented that Bosco’s performance was awkward and lacked vigor. A netizen commented, “He looks like he’s singing in the shower with the shower head as his microphone.”
In response to the criticism, Bosco said, “I thought my performance was fine, but I will accept the criticism and improve.”
Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) also won a golden song award for her plug, “You are One Half of Me” <你是我的一半>, but like Bosco, she was also heavily criticized by netizens for her poor live singing. A netizen wrote, “Excuse my offense, but with such [bad] live singing by Linda Chung, how is she even able to hold her own concert next month?”
Other netizens concluded that while Linda can keep a tune, her breathing technique is faulty. A netizen explained, “She’s breathing at the wrong intervals, so it makes her sound like she’s always out of breath. She can’t hit her high notes because of that.”
Linda’s Love Love Love concert will be held at the Kowloonbay International Trade and Exhibition Center on August 22 and 23.
