Kristal Tin Wins Jade Solid Gold Singing Award

Kristal Tin (田蕊妮) took a step back from acting this year to work on her music. Her hard work paid off because she won “Outstanding Performance Gold Award” at Jade Solid Gold Best Ten Awards Presentation 2018. Carrie Tam (譚嘉儀) won Silver, followed by Sukie S (石詠莉) with Bronze awards.

When they announced her name, Kristal was in complete shock and even said, “I honestly can’t believe this! It gave me a scare because I personally didn’t perform the best; it was the marketing team that deserves this award. I want to thank my fans, and the company. I promise to work harder to appear on this stage again!”

After receiving her award, Kristal performed her winning song “Couple” <兩口子>.

Big winners for the night were Hana Kuk (菊梓乔) for Most Popular Female Singer, with her theme songs from Deep in the Realm of Conscience <飛蛾撲火> and Another Era <只想與你再一起> snagging awards, as well as Hins Cheung (張敬軒) for Most Popular Male Singer, winning nods for his songs “Nothing Without You” <缺> and “Prodigy 1985” <天才兒童1985>.

Jinny Ng (吳若希) also won that night for her theme songs in the Cantonese version of Story of Yanxi Palace <無常青春> and My Ages Apart <別再記起>. This is Jinny’s first time attending such a big award presentation after giving birth to her son. Aside from thanking her boss, she wanted to thank her husband, Alex Ho (何兆鴻), who was supporting her in the audience.

    i didnt watch any singers awards shows since the end of the four heavenly kings era. in the ’80 and ’90 it was really a big event with real singers and good songs. its the singers and songs that make those events great. its sad but i think cantopop already died for decades now.

        @janet72 yes james wong was one of the greatest song composer/writer that have made cantopop great, also many other great singers and composer have passed away while other retired. there are just no succesors of that level nowadays.

    I also haven’t paid much attention to JSG or any of the other HK music awards since the end of the Heavenly Kings era (late 90s), as there hasn’t been much worth paying attention to since then. With that said, among all the music award shows, JSG is definitely the worst of the lot, since it pretty much only awards singers from TVB’s own music label or from EEG….at least the other 3 awards shows allows participation from all music labels and so better represents the music industry. TVB should’ve cancelled JSG years ago rather than let it become the laughingstock with zero credibility that it is now.

    As for who won what at JSG, honestly I don’t give a crap, since that award show has long ago ceased to exist in my book anyway….what I do have a problem with though is the winners’ delusional fans trying to compare their idols to veteran singers in the industry (specifically in this case, Hana Kuk’s fans putting her at the level of such legendary singers as Jenny Tseng and Cass Pang)…rejoicing in their idol’s win (no matter how illegitimate and undeserving that win is) is one thing, but please don’t drag veteran artists into it…to me, that’s akin to using those veteran singers’ names in vain, which the rest of us non-fans have the right to be pissed about. So yea, Hana fans, please stop!

      @llwy12 zero credibility is a good word to describe this award show. it has become a podium to promote their own artist. nothing more than that.

        @kolo Yup…come to think of it, same thing can be said about all of TVB’s programs nowadays. Even shows that TVB puts together to supposedly “pay tribute” to veteran artists end up being a platform for TVB to shamelessly promote their own artists and singers. I’ve stopped watching all TVB “tribute shows” over the years because they do nothing but piss me off with the blatant way they use veteran artists’ names for self-promotion….

      It’s a company end of year awards rather than a national award. Every company has an employee of the year award. Not prestigious at all…

        @jimmyszeto Exactly! As many of the veteran artists have been saying for at least a decade already, TVB’s award shows nowadays are nothing more than a “closed-door game” exclusively for members who are willing to play by TVB’s rules. Those who have a problem with TVB’s rules can’t do anything except refuse to participate (which is the option that most of the veteran artists go with, hence one of the reasons why TVB’s awards shows in recent years have lacked “star quality” – most of the “big stars” basically don’t bother with TVB anymore)….

        When all the singers of a TVB theme tunes win the awards, that’s where the alarm bells starts sounding. It would take an exceptional theme song in the past to bag an award. Something of the ‘Looking Back in Anger’ calibre….

        @jimmyszeto So true! And therein lies part of the problem….over the years, TVB got cheap and started having their own singers / artists perform theme songs rather than have “real” non-TVB singers perform them…and of course things got 110% worse after Voice Entertainment was established (variety in theme songs went down the toilet, hence you have people like Jinny Ng and Hana Kuk singing like 9 out of 10 theme songs)….they should seriously change JSG to be “Top Ten TVB Series Theme Song Awards” because that’s what the show essentially is (which is proven by the fact that virtually none of the winners at JSG are able to bag any awards at the other 3 music award ceremonies except for the EEG artists like Hins and Joey)….if I were a Voice Entertainment artist, I would be embarrassed that 1) the only place I’m able to get an award is at TVB and 2) that award has zero credibility in the industry because Voice Entertainment as a record label is not widely recognized outside of TVB.

        Also, just as a point of reference as to how badly JSG has eroded: I occasionally re-watch old TVB programs from the 80s/90s and the other day, I binge re-watched a few old JSG award shows (I was in one of my nostalgic phases). Back in those days, (the 80s JSG especially), they would actually introduce all nominated songs at the beginning of the ceremony (the name of the song, the artist, and the album)…it was always roughly 40 songs nominated and from that lot, they would have to cut it down to 10 songs for the actual awards (majority of the 40 songs were NOT TVB series themesongs). I remember back then, it would be hard for me to choose which 10 songs out of the 40 to root for because all the songs were so good and so deserving of an award…I would always wish they had more than 10 slots so that all my favorites (which sometimes were all 40 songs, lol) could get something. Nowadays, it’s the opposite – there isn’t even 1 or 2 songs worth listening to, let alone enough to fill 10 award slots….

        Yep. I remember how much of a big deal it was to win a JSG top 10 song back in the day especially when there were any slots available with Anita Mui and Alan Tam always bagging a few each year then the Four Heavenly Kings dominating year in year out. When the likes of Ram Tsiang or Amanda Lee took one against all odds it was recognised as massive victories. Every JSG song have become easily recognised as classics. If you watch a JSG ceremony now a top 10 winnerwould either be not celebrate or they would pretend to be ecstatic over the useless award. Most of the songs aren’t even hits during the year nevermind having classic potential. I believe that Fred, Stephanie Ho, Hubert, Jinny, Albert Hui and Hana will be dominating JSG for years to come. TVB don’t even bother to outsource singers to cameo in theme songs anymore. Back in the day we had plenty invited back, Andy Lau theme for a few Alex Man series themes/Burning Flame, Aaron for Burning Flame 2, Jacky for plain love /country spirit franchise.

        @jimmyszeto And the irony is of course, some of the current Voice artists have to rely on covering previous classics and turning them into theme or sub-theme songs for current TVB series to become popular (i.e. Lowell Lo’s 陪著你走 which was turned into sub-theme song for My Unfair Lady, and Danny Chan’s 有了你, which was the theme song for that BB series – interestingly enough, both songs were covered by The Voice’s Tam Ka Yee). By the way, that song Hana won for, the sub-theme to Life on the Line that’s been popular recently, is actually a cover of Lowell Lo’s classic 但願人長久 (a song whose melody was written by Lowell while his wife Susan Tong penned the lyrics)….so those who like the song should give proper credit to Lowell and Susan, not TVB.

        The sad part is that most current audiences don’t know this information and think the songs are originally sung by The Voice artists. I remember some company did a survey where they polled several hundred people in HK asking them who the original singer for 陪著你走 is and majority said Tam Ka Yee while a bunch said Vincent Wong…only ONE person out of hundreds surveyed got the answer right, that the original singer was Lowell Lo (so obviously Voice Entertainment and TVB’s marketing plan to make people think the song is theirs has been working). I nearly fell out of my chair back when Vincent won an award for that song and he didn’t even know who originally sang it (made himself look like a fool on whatever that award show was). Oh and have any of these people thanked the original singers / composers / songwriters when they get awards for these songs? Hana thanked the song’s producer (Chu whatever his name, who works for Voice Entertainment and “remastered” the song) as well as Voice Entertainment’s boss Herman Ho…any mention of Lowell or Susan? Of course not!!!

        So yea, basically, when it comes to TVB theme songs nowadays, either the current theme songs suck or if they’re good, they’re most likely covers of classics that Voice Entertainment tries to repackage as their own with no credit (publicly of course) given to the original team that created the song, which ticks me off to no end….

        Yep that Kayee Tam is just a professional cover artist. She hangs around on YouTube singing covers of recent songs. I like Lowell. Just an amazing understated unique talent that unfortunately not many of this generation has heard of at all. It is appalling if the classic songs from ‘My Fair Lady’ and ‘life on the line’ mistaken for Vincent and Kayee Tam and Hana as original singers….

        @jimmyszeto Agree with you about Lowell. I read that article about Hana “overcoming adversity” or whatnot to finally “make it to the top” (though I honestly don’t consider an artist who has only been in the industry 2 years and relies on singing TVB theme songs for a living has truly “made it to the top” but oh well) and my first reaction was – so? It’s not like she’s the only artist who had to overcome adversity. Let’s take Lowell for example: Lowell is actually dyslexic, so writing songs and remembering lyrics is a huge challenge for him, yet he was able to overcome the odds and make a successful career out of being a singer/songwriter….also, when he started, he knew nothing about HK music, since he lived in the U.S. and wrote mostly in English (in the early days, he had to painstakingly translate everything from English to Chinese – not an easy feat given his dyslexia and other learning disabilities)…he started singing in hotel bars and lounges when he returned to HK, which is where he learned his Cantonese…..yet he went on to become one of HK Cantopop’s most prolific songwriters. Despite all the challenges, Lowell (and his wife Susan of course – the two of them were one of the best husband and wife songwriting duos in the industry) has written some of the most beautiful Cantonese songs, both for himself and other artists (the song 天變地變情不變 , which he wrote for Jacky Cheung, is one of my favorites!)
