The 2017 TVB JADE SOLID GOLD AWARDS took place last night
at the Tseung Kwan O Television City. This year 38 awards were presented,
a little less than 45 last year. At the same time, this year "the
highest popularity singer award" was added and the past "Most Popular Male
and Female Singer Awards" were merged into the "Most Popular Singer
Award". Last night attending singers included Hacken Lee Hak Kun, Pakho
Chau, Hana Kuk Chi Kiu, Vincy Chan (Wing Yi), Ken Hung Cheuk Lap, Mag Lam
Yun Tung, JW, Huber Wu Hung Kwan, James Ng Yip Kwan and others. In the
end the Most Popular Singer was Lee Hak Kun. The "Voice Entertainment
Gang" as expected became the big winner with 14 awards.
Since several years ago TVB and the four major record companies
parted ways over royalty disputes, in recent years JADE SOLID GOLD only
had the support of Emperor singers, the Voice Entertainment and other
record company's young singers. Thus last night Emperor and the Voice
Entertainment singers were seated in the front row. The Voice
Entertainment singers like Pakho Chau, Kuk Chi Kiu, Wu Hung Kwan,
Stephanie Ho Ngan Sze at the center on one side, while on the other
were Wing Yi, Hung Cheuk Lap and others.
Joining the Voice Entertainment this year, Pakho Chau was the
first singer to win the song award. Ho Ngan Sze followed. When she
accepted that way she said, "This year I have experienced a lot of good
and not so good things, I hope my songs and as a person from now on would
improve everyday with every song."
Coming home with a "goose egg" from the Metro Hit Awards, Wu Hung
Kwan received strong support from the event. His record was said to be
hard to get, his nude scene from THE EXORCISTS' METER was shown. He also
won two song awards for I WAS HERE and JUST A FRIEND. When he accepted
his award he admitted that this year was a special year because he had a
lot of new attempts in music. "JUST A FRIEND originally wasn't mine, but
I ended up in my hands. I appreciate my team for trusting me."
Rumored to be upset at Metro Hit Awards and skipped it, JW last
night also received a song award. She denied the rumor backstage.
"Because I have to rehearse for my concert, I really didn't have time to
go. I didn't even go to my family's and my boyfriend's Christmas party.
I wasn't petty either. As a singer as long as I make good music I am
happy. The award is a bonus. I am OK without it too." Metro did not
invite her to send a video. JW said, "I didn't know I have to, I just
listened to the company's arrangement. I don't mind, every year the award
shows are singers' gathering for me."
Was she upset that Joyce Cheng Yun Yi, Janice Vidal (Wai Lan) and
Ivana Wong Yuen Chi won? JW said, "I can't possibly be upset, every year
there have been only a few awards, winning every year is impossible. I
too hope music is in full bloom, in addition their songs are great. Even
Gin Lee and AGA didn't win but this year they work very hard. Singers
aren't just about awards."
When duet awards were announced, Vincent Wong Ho Shun shared two
awards with Hana Kuk Chi Kiu and Kayee Tam. Ho Shun was surprised and
sentimental. "I started as a singer, for the award I have to thank the
company and my two colleagues. I hope Cantonese songs will continue on.
I am the most sorry about forgetting elder (Lowell) Lo Koon Ting's name.
I have been so busy with a series that I haven't even had the time to
sleep. This time I come to accept the awards at the last second, I am not
at my best either."
He also forgot to thank his wife in his speech. Ho Shun said,
"That's right, actors instead would think of what they would say in
advance. This time I really didn't have time to think. Of course I have
to thank my wife. She gave me space to work, next time I would remember."
Would he consider a record release? He said that nowadays music no longer
needs to release a record. Music could be shared in other ways. The
most important was to surprise everyone.
Kayee Tam with the WALK WITH YOU solo version won a song award.
When she performed this song she got teary eyed.
This year's Jade Solid Gold hosts got younger, as the show
daringly went with Louisa Mak Ming Sze, Crystal Fung Ying Ying and Lok
Ho Ming. Louisa was inevitably nervous for her first big show and was a
little stiff. With her braces, when she explained the votes were counted
under accountant supervision she said "acchicken" instead and made the
When the show started, the five former Miss Hong Kong pageant
contestants formed "five little flowers" Jacqueline Wong Sum Ying, Sisley
Choi Si Bui, Veronica Shiu Pui Sze, Fung Ying Ying and Bowie Cheung
performed the hit song I WAS HERE, but Sum Ying and Bowie were obviously
lip synching poorly. After their performance the new comer awards were
announced. The gold, silver and bronze prize went to Vivian Koo (Kuk Me),
Cherry Ngan Cheuk Ling and Alvin Ng Fu Kiu.
In addition, when JW and Ng Yip Kwan's ACTUALLY ONLY BECAUSE OF
DEEP LOVE was announced as the Best Duet silver prize winner, Ying Ying
said that this song gave Brother Kwan a rumor. In the audience Wu Hung
Kwan immediately guessed that Brother Kwan and immediately shook his
hand. JW sat between them and blocked them with her hand in a funny way.
