The final singer's report card came out last night at th 35th RTHK Top Ten Chinese Gold Song Awards 2012. A total of 49 awards were presented, the majority were just consolation prizes. This is Joey Yung's 9th time getting the "Outstanding Female Singer" award and Eason's 8th time. Joey and Eason were again the big winners of the night, sweeping away 4 and 5 awards respectively. In terms of the HK four station music awards, Joey is the big winner of 2012, with a total of 13.5 awards and even defeated Eason, who only got a total of 12 awards.
When Joey went on stage to accept her "Gold Song" award, the award presenter Hacken Lee described her as the "Corner of Mouth Sucking Youth" female singer. The night wasn't perfect enough as Joey's boyfriend Wilfred Lau was absent from the ceremony.
Eason took home 5 awards last night, but when he performed his winning son Heavy Flavor, the volume was too loud, so Eason pointed to his ear buds and shouted: "Can't hear anything".
It was the first time Jenny Tseng (Yan Nei) and G.E.M appeared at the same event since Jenny scolded GEM for having no manners and showing no respect to her seniors. On stage, Jenny continued her criticisms towards GEM, she said: "The most important is to greet others! I'm often in Mainland, but there are new faces every time I come back, sometimes I want to greet them, but I feel stupid because I'm not sure if they know me or not and I don't know what to do. An outstanding singer doesn't just have the good singing skills, but also be dressed appropriately and definitely don't be arrogant." When the camera zoomed into the audience, GEM was not in her seat. It appears she deliberately avoided her.
Back then, Jenny criticized Eason for being too loud on the airplane. Last night, when Jenny presented the award to Eason, she boasted she taught him well: "It's me who taught him well, that got him to where he is today." When Eason accepted his award, he bowed to her and gave her a hug. He also sent his blessings to Jenny, wishing her a good show at her upcoming concert.
Louis Cheung won the bronze award for "Most Improved Singer of the Year". On stage, he sweetly expressed it was his 6th wedding anniversary with Kay Tse. "This is my first RTHK award and today, it is my 6th wedding anniversary (iron wedding). I can't greet you all too much, have a few more drinks!" In the audience, Kay revealed a sweet smile and applauded in support for her husband.
Raymond Lam won "Weibo's Strongest Singer" award. Initially Charlene Choi (Ah Sa) was leading in first place with 40,517 votes, defeating Raymond's 36,344 votes by a landslide, but two minutes before the poll closed, Raymond's votes suddenly had a 10,000 vote jump. Raymond's fans criticized Ah Sa that she's not qualified to get this award. Reporters did some more research and learned that Raymond ended with 46,952 votes, defeating Ah Sa's 43,150 votes. In other news, earlier Raymond successfully established his own work studio called "L.F" (L-For) and progressively launched his own trademark. To promote for his upcoming HK Coliseum concert, Raymond came up with his own merchandise "Choksta", there are Choksta baseball caps and T-shirts that fans could purchase. Earlier Raymond did a photo shoot wearing all his Choksta products, and showed off his Chok look and poses.
