The final music report card of 2013 was sent out at last night's TVB JADE SOLID GOLD awards. This year for the first time the general public voted for the 27 awards. Joey Yung Cho Yi with 6.5 awards became the big winner. She with almost half the votes, 58,815 votes, to win her ninth "Most Popular Female Singer". She even with SKYLIGHT won Gold Song Gold Prize. Raymond Lam Fung won his second "Most Popular Male Singer". This year the gold song awards were increased to 20. With a lack of good song and competition, Joey won 3.5 gold songs and set a female singer record.
This year Jade Solid Gold's 27 awards for the first time were decided by voters. The awards had 1,001,846 votes. This year the gold song awards were raised to 20, with votes determining their positions. Without Eason Chan Yik Shun, Hacken Lee Hak Kun, Pakho Chau and other singes in the competition, Ivana Wong Yuen Chi, Mag Lam Yun Tung, Alfred Hui Ting Hung, Hubert Wu Hung Kwun, Lam Fung each had two gold songs. Joey even had 3.5 with SKYLIGHT, EYE OPNEING, CHARGER and the duet with Adason Lo (Law Lik Wai), GEMINI LOVE SONG. Without any competition she even on the Gold Song Gold Prize with SKYLIGHT. Wu Hung Kwun, Wong Yuen Chi and G.E.M. won awards for their remakes. When Wu Hung Kwun's METAMORPHOSIS came in second place, he thanked the original singer Denise Ho Wan Si. Joey then flashed an unnatural smile.
The entire award show had no tension at all. Joey without any competition won her ninth Most Popular Female Singer. The total vote count for the award was 131,049 votes, Joey received 58,815. With over 40% she won. Host Lawrence Cheng Tan Shui asked Joey if being invincible was the loneliest feeling. She joked, "I am afraid that you would get bored with me, feel that I am in the way. However this time viewers voted for me, I am truly very happy. I won't get bored even for a few years more." She thanked many of her co-workers except boyfriend Wilfred Lau Ho Lung.
Lam Fung appeared despite earlier rumors. He won his second "Most Popular Male Singer" award and two gold song awards. His competition Hui Ting Hung said that he was too inexperience and felt "Brother Fung" was more qualified. The award had 122,692 votes, Lam Fung received 36,412 votes. He said that last year he spent less time on music and thanked fans for not giving up on him. Lam Fung not only thanked Elaine Lok Yi Ling but also said that he would perform even better in his future jobs. Perhaps he was hinting that he would date less and focus more on work? Lam Fung missed his cue when he performed SAME FOREST and to start over again. "Sorry, one more time, I forgot the lyrics." Joyce Cheng Yun Yi with EMBRACE LOVE won her first award. She was so happily that she was stunned for awhile, but she still remembered to thank her mother Lydia Shum Din Ha.
TVB maintained its "no award for absence" tradition, so its own Linda Chung Ka Yun and Fiona Sit Hoi Kei both had no award. Earlier rumored to be suspended, Chung Ka Yun would rather attend her advertising client's banquet. Sit Hoi Kei was working abroad.
Andy Hui Chi On yesterday appeared as a guest performer. After his performance, Carol Cheng Yui Ling asked him if he was already married and would he organize a big wedding banquet. He was so scared that he stuttered and said that he was not married yet. He even said that the Jade Solid Gold award stage was not suitable to talk about that. Cheng Yui Ling refused to yield, as she told On Jai not to be too coy. She asked On Jai to invite her to the wedding banquet. On Jai awkwardly said that he will invite her to both the wedding ceremony and the banquet.
During the award show, Amigo Choi Kin Bong asked many female singers to campaign for "Most Popular Female Singer" votes. Cheng Yun Yi and Stephanie Cheng Yung both campaigned for votes but the voting already ended at 6PM.
