The final music award show of 2020, the 2020 TVB Jade Solid Gold Awards took place last night at the Television City. 50 awards were presented. Hana Kuk Chi Kiu for the third year in a row won the Most Popular Female Singer. Pakho Chau received the Best Performance for Male Singer, the Most Popular Male Singer and a gold song award. The Most Popular Male Singer had "twin winners" for the first time in history as both Pakho Chau and Hubert Wu Hung Kwan won. In summation, this year Hana Kuk Chi Kiu won five and a half awards, Pakho Chau won three and Wu Hung Kwan won five. Karen Mok Man Wai's BREATHING IS HARMFUL swept all four major music awards' song award as the Solid Gold Gold Song.
The award show started with a group of young singers Kayee Tam, Vivian Koo, Birds of Paradise, Joey Thye, Tsang Lok Tung, Zaina Sze Hon Kiu, Simon On Chun Ho and others' performance of OVER THE RAINBOW. From the singer seating positions, Hana Kuk Chi Kiu, Pakho Chau, Hubert Wu Hung Kwan, Vincent Wong Ho Shun, Shiga Lin, JW and others were seated in the first row. Fred Cheng Chun Won who received full support in past years was seated in the second row with his wife Stephanie Ho Ngan Si. Rumored to be busy with her son, Jinny Ng Yeuk Hei in the end did not appear at the award show.
The first award presented was the "Popularity King" award, which went to Vincent Wong Ho Shun for the second year in a row. He at the same time with WILLING TO REPLACE YOU received the "Adapted Song Gold Song" award. Wong Ho Shun thanked the Voice's CEO Herman Ho Jik To for adapting WILLING. Because he only sang it acappella in AL CAPPUCCINO, under Ho Jik To's encouragement he adapted the song. He also thanked friends who always supported him but he did not thank his wife Yoyo Chan Chi Yiu. Kuk Chi Kiu won two gold song awards in a row with CAN'T LET GO and I FAILED TO FORGET YOU. She thanked her boss for choosing excellent songs for her and hoped that in the future she would be able to continue to sing good songs.
Hubert Wu Hung Kwan with NO RIGHT TO BE JEALOUS won a gold song award. He was dubbed the "Love Song Prince", and the song was his first original plug song last year. He thanked fans for their support and not forgetting this song. The "Most Improved Award of the Year" went to all female singers, the gold prize winner Aka Chio Wai Shan thanked the company for still releasing her new songs under the pandemic as nothing came easy.
Deep Ng Ho Hong's LOVE WITHOUT SUSPICION victory was the first shot fired by Emperor Entertainment. Joey Thye Cho Yee and Brian Tse Tung Man's DREAM FLIGHT was the first duet to win the gold song award. The music video online had over 1.8 million hits. Vivian Koo (Kuk Ah Mei)'s hit song WAILING WALL also won an award. Because earlier Crystal Fung Ying Ying misread Kuk Ah Mei as Tam Ka Yee, the event made special arrangement for Kayee Tam to announce the result. Next to her Kuk Ah Mei was even more excited.
Jason Pai Piao and Mimi Kung Chi Yan presented the "Most Popular Newcomer Award". Before the award Pai Piao first evaluated the nominees. He joked that Tse Tung Man was unfaithful, aside from working on television series and entertainment programs now he is hooking up with singing. Pai Piao made fun of Benjamin Yuen Wai Ho for still being a newcomer after years in the business. The camera immediately caught Benjamin showing off his wedding ring. Pai Piao said that Ben wanted to use the wedding to bring luck for the award. Finally the newcomer award wen to Tse Tung Man, Yuen Wai Ho and Elly.
Married last year, Fred Cheng Chun Won and Stephanie Ho Ngan Si were arranged to accept their awards together. Cheng Chun Won's award winning song was TRIBULATION OF BLOOD AND TEAR, while Ho Ngan Si's was OPPONENT. Right before performing the song she realized that she did not thank her husband and rushed to make up for it. Grace Wong Kwan Hing's CASADA and Kuk Ah Mei's HOW TO GIVE UP ON LOVE won "Chinese Gold Song" awards. Kwan Hing thanked her husband for encouraging her not to give up on her dream, but joked that her husband did not understand Cantonese so he probably was not watching her on television. Kayee Tam also won her first gold song award with ACTUALLY HAVE LOVE. When she also won the "Best Performance for Female Singer" award she cried. With ten years in the business she admitted that at first she did not have too many opportunities to sing. She thanked the company for giving her the chance to and her family for their support. She dedicated the award to her late father.
The "Best Duet" gold prize was STRAIGHT UPSTREAM, silver prize was Raymond Lam Fung and Hana's TROUGH HEAVEN. Hana joked that from recording to making the music video she has never seen Lam Fung. She hoped to have a chance to sing the duet face to face. The bronze prize was Gabriel Harrison (Hoi Chun Kit) and Selena Li Sze Wa's duet SECOND DESTINY. Hoi Chun Kit also tripped when he accepted the award, and joked that the stage was full of traps.
Emperor singers Tsang Lok Tung, Ken Hung Cheuk Lap and Gladys Li Ching Kwan won three gold song awards for FINDING SOMEONE, WE ALL WANT TO TRAVEL and ONE THOUSAND AND ONE PAGE respectively. Last year's newcomer award winner Gladys Li even received her first gold song award. "Best Creative Singer Gold Prize" had three winners: Hubert Wu Hung Kwan, Deep Ng Ho Hong and Terence Lam Ka Him. Lam Ka Him at the same time with SOLITUDE received the "Best Original Song" gold prize. Joining the Voice Entertainment last year, JW with LIGHT MATURE WOMAN also won her first gold song award.
Winning awards nonstop, Hana again received the "Most Popular Internet Female Singer Award". The "Most Popular Internet Male Singer Award" was Wu Hung Kwan. He was the only singer with over 10 million hits, well deserving the award. Kuk Chiu Kiu won her third the Most Popular Female Singer. She said that losing at the starting line does not mean that you would definitely lose. She gave special thanks to her younger sister for always supporting her.
The Joey Law Tin Yu and Katy Kung Ka Yan starred series HONG KONG LOVE STORIES was not only popular but also made the Brian Tse Tung Man and Joey Thye Cho Yee sung series song STRAIGHT UPSTREAM popular. In the series Law Tin Yu and Kung Ka Yan also sang this song, so last night all four received awards. Rumored couple Law Tin Yu and Joey Thye appeared somewhat embarrassed. After the award they separated into two pairs and sang. Joey and Tse Tung Man were on one team. Joey after the performance got her dress caught on the stage, and Tse Tung Man had to lend a helping hand.
In addition, Alfred Hui Ting Hung recently on a radio program interview revealed that the reason he left the Voice Entertainment in 2017 was a financial issue with a colleague. The Voice Entertainment CEO Herman Ho Chit To yesterday said that actually 5 years ago he asked the colleague involved. Indeed the colleague had some difficulties at home and asked Hui Ting Hung as a friend to lend him money. However at the time Hui Ting Hung did not lend any and that colleague never accepted any money. Afterward he asked everyone in the company again, that colleague never borrowed any money. Thus for now he said that no one lent any money and no one took any money. This was only a minor issue.
Would he feel that someone was making news? He said, "Actually everyone should put the focus back on their own music. Music really needs the singers' effort, helping Hong Kong music is very important. You can see our own company and all other singers have worked very hard on their own music." Has he asked the colleague not to have further financial connections? He said, "At the time the colleague already knew, I have explained it to him and he understood. This was already 4 to 5 years ago. I knew about it. Before Hui Ting Hung left I have asked him about it. (Why would Hui only talk about it now?) I don't know what he is thinking." He also stressed that in this matter no one borrowed money, and no one accepted anyone's money. Would it affect the company colleague? He said that he already explained it once 5 years ago and everyone understood very well. That colleague currently is still working very hard at the company.
