Honoring the music achievements from Hong Kong and Taiwan, the ninth annual Music King Golden Song Chart Awards were held in the Guangzhou International Sports Arena on the evening of March 17, 2013. Over 100 artists from both regions were nominated, and over 60 awards were handed out.

    What’s the difference between Music Queen/King & Best Female/Male Singer? Seriously though, Joey has no competition, which is sad for the music industry.

      I was wondering the same thing. Most of the great singers are either retired, focusing on other things or just don’t care for these awards anymore. Sadly, there is no new talent or people that are truly talented don’t want to become singers.

      Joey does have no competition, but that doesn’t mean it’s because all other singers are crapy or the other good ones are left out. Ivanna is really good, so is Kay and a few others. Although they are good, they still can’t beat Joey or is nowhere close to Joey because Joey is an all round singer, unlike the other female singers. Joey sings and dances. She sings both fast and slow songs and even releases Mando albums. She’s good at bringing up the heat during concerts. The other female singers are only good for slower songs and composing music, not all round.

    What’s the point of awards it’s all going to the same people, like the next headlines always goes “Joey won 10 awards, Joey beat Anita’s records, joey lost out on best singer for this year, Raymond snags 50 awards…wonder how many awards she accumulated so far in her career. Dying hk music industry. So sad. When you see the same few reaping it each year and not training new stars to reach the top.

    I absolutely hate what the HK music industry has become. Why do we need so many of these awards shows, there’s like one every month. Secondly, why do we have 60 frikkin awards? Stupid, just stupid,

      60 awards is nothing compared to that one award ceremony that gives out nearly 200 awards

    Surprise surprise? not. HK music has become so dull and boring. Every year, almost every awards belongs to Joey..(or Eason)..

    Good that Paul Wong won an award,he deserves it. Twins get best group for HK? They are so over-rated and can’t really sing,should give to those more deserving.

    Hong Kong music industry is in serious trouble if someone like Joey is getting all the awards. How can she be compared to the late Anitia Mui, that’s an insult IMO.

      I know, it always goes to Eason and female is this Joey like all the other artists are dead or something. Really? are they really that great or HK is just lacking talent? haha I will pick the latter. LOL…

    Even though this was held in Guangzhou I’m surprised HK singers got most if the awards. Where are all the Taiwan and mainland singers?

    Lots of people here don’t like the fact that it’s Joey winning again. So I would like to know what people think about her. Do you guys think she is a good professional singer worthy of the title “Queen of Pop” or do you guys think she is not a good singer. And if you chose the 2nd choice, why and which current female singer do you think should be the top female singer.

    I personally really like Joey. I’ve been listening to her songs for my whole life and love her singing, songs, and concerts. Her songs totally grew up with me.

      She’s average. She’s just “the best” right now because she’s the one who Emperor decided to put all their money in.

      And hey, if people keep saying that she’s the best singer in HK, then it eventually becomes the truth even though it might not be true.

      To me, she CAN sing. But is she comparable to the legends? Of course not, theyre legends for a reason.

      But yes, she definitely can sing. Shes put at a tough spot because of how the hk music industry is now. Shes basically seen as the best of the worst.
