Stepping into 2012, music industry's second report card Commercial Radio 2011 Chik Chak Pop Music Chart Award took place last night and presented 43 awards. Eason Chan Yik Shun and Joey Yung Cho Yi again received the Male and Female Singer Gold Prize. Khalil Fong Datong won eight and two third awards in multiple capacity to become the big winner. Hacken Lee Hak Kun who vanished from Commercial Radio due to airplay rate received an award again. Five years later he personally accepted the award.
Fong Datong's personal creation VERY UNEASY won the Best Song, four awards as song and lyrics writer, song arrangement and performance. He again with 15 won Best Record, then received the Song Writer Award, the Creative Singer Award and Male Singer silver prize. As one of the three producers on his record, he also received 1/3 of the award. With eight and two third awards he became the big winner.
Miriam Yeung Chin Wa again won My Favorite Female Singer. Eason called her and accepted the award on her behalf. Chan Yik Shun himself also won My Favorite Male Singer for the seventh year.
When Male Singer gold and silver prize were announced, Eason and Fong Datong went to the stage together. Eason grabbed him by the neck and pretended to kiss. They held hands as they went to the stage. Finally Eason won the gold prize for the eighth time. "Years ago, I slowly treated Chik Chak as my home. I wasn't as nervous as I used to be. This warmth is from everyone. I am the happiest that after being a singer for over a decade my biggest gain is this warmth." Eason sounded hoarse during his performance. Sammy praised him for insisting on singing live despite the danger to his vocal cord.
Winning female singer gold prize for the seventh time, Joey held Denise Ho Wan Si's hand tightly when she won the bronze prize; when Joey won the gold prize they embraced. Joey said that for her seventh female singer gold prize she did not feel used to it because every year was a big challenge. Joey hinted that Ah Si who was reluctant to attend award shows finally appeared as well. "Sometimes comments and other people's angles are different, but both are based out of love."
My Favorite Song went to the Hu Xia sang THOSE YEARS. William So Wing Hong's THAT SOMEBODY only lost by a nose. However the film and the song both were favorites to win. Hu Xia again thanked Hong Kong people's passion for this film and song.
Chik Chak Top Ten had many new faces, aside from Hu Xia's THOSE YEARS, So Wing Hong, Kary Ng Yu Fei and Paul Wong Koon Chung all agreed that they have not accepted a Commercial Radio award in a long time. After years of running afoul with Commercial Radio, Hacken with the song HEAVENLY RIVER again broke into the Chik Chak Top Ten. Five years later he personally accepted the award, "Due to age, I can't coordinate with the event and dressed exaggeratedly."
Wong Koon Chun with the song CAN'T BRING ME DOWN won Chik Chak Top Ten. In a tiger print coast Paul said, "I haven't been here for years, Happy new Year. I have to thank the event, the DJs, playing my song isn't inevitable. I also have to thank my band, my previous one Beyond, I don't know what to say." Then he said to the singers in the audience. "I just said that you are my students. Remember to pay your tuition."
Wong Yuen Chi with DOOMSDAY broke into the Chik Chak Top Ten for the first time. She cried as she said, "This is my first Top Ten, thank you fans, all the singers in the audience, sorry. As soon as I cry I lose control, I have never cried so much on stage. Cheung King Hin thank you, thank you everyone, I will keep working hard." In the audience Cheung King Hin was teary eyed.
Carol Cheng Yui Ling announced the Rookie top three. She joked that ordinarily she would only present some heavyweight awards. Young Master Jim immediately said, "You have to sleep at night, the heavyweight awards won't happen until past midnight. You will already be in your see through nightgown and holding your red wine in preparation for bed!"
When Joyce Cheng Yun Yi won the bronze prize, Do Do said sentimentally, "I once worked with this one's mama. At the time Mama constantly said, if in the future her daughter would be in the business she definitely would be successful. I believe your Mommy today would have definitely been very happy!" Yun Yi was all choked up, "I said I wouldn't cry. I am very happy to win this award. Actually I have always been a girl who lack self confidence." When Dodo introduced Rookie gold prize winner Alfred Hui Ting Hung she lightly hummed his number one hit ANT but she was off key, leaving the audience cracking up.
