Aside from Raymond Lam’s ( 林峯) high chances to win TV King this year, he may also take home Jade Solid Gold’s Most Popular Male Singer award. With TVB implementing the one person, one vote system to determine the winners of its major awards ceremonies, Raymond Lam’s chances are overwhelming in his favor due to his massive fan base.
Every year towards the end of the year, the major music companies in Hong Kong will focus on year-end music awards shows. The most noticeable and important one is certainly TVB’s JSG awards, since it generates a lot of discussion. Last year, the show received a great deal of attention due to the disputes over the contracts between the 5 major record companies. The winners from last year’s show were primarily from Emperor Entertainment Group and East Asia.
Leaked List of JSG Winners
Many have already questioned the fairness of the awards, so it was surprising to find a list of nominated artists so early in October for JSG’s year-end awards leaked on the internet.
Recently, in a Hong Kong online discussion forum, a netizen claimed he received a list from a TVB employee revealing this year’s JSG award winners. The netizen claimed that the list is 99 percent accurate. Last year, Raymond Lam won the Asia Pacific Most Popular Hong Kong Male Artist Award. The leaked nomination list revealed that he will be the winner of the Most Popular Male artist this year. Also Leo Ku (古巨基), who won in the past two years, will only win Asia Pacific Most Popular Hong Kong male artist. If the list turns out toe be true, this will surprise many viewers.
The leaked nomination list did not include any artists from the 5 record companies who have not settled their contracts with TVB. Kay Tse (謝安琪) recently signed a contract with Stars Shine, and therefore escaped the burden of the disputes. Kay has been making regular guest appearances in some TVB shows lately, and perhaps that is why the list revealed she will the receive the award for Most Popular Female Artist.
Destined to shock the viewers, the 7-time Most Popular Female Award Artist, Joey Yung ( 容祖兒) will only win the Asia Pacific Most Popular Hong Kong Female Artist Award.
Actually there were already rumors about Kay Tse costarring with Andy Lau in a TVB series spreading all over the internet earlier this year. Did Kay agree to film the series in exchange for JSG top honors?
However, the authenticity of the nomination list still remains to be proven. Many times in the past, rumored lists of winners were posted online, but none of them have exactly matched the final results.
Below is the circulated the rumored list of JSG winners:
Most Popular Male Artist– Raymond Lam
Most Popular Female Artist– Kay Tse
Asia Pacific Most Popular Hong Kong Male Artist — Leo Ku
Asia Pacific Most Popular Hong Kong female artist — Joey Yung
Golden Melody Gold Award — Leo Ku’s Love Without Love <戀無可戀>
Most Popular Group: RubberBand (Gold), C All-Star (Silver), HotCha (Bronze)
