According to Hong Kong media reports, the "Sprite Original Music Awards Night" was held in Beijing last night (April 17). Charlene Choi (Ah Sa) who went solo for the first time, took home 3 awards, her strengths once again receiving approval, while Jay Chou won 6 awards, his results worth being proud of, the most.

Many popular singers from Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan gathered at Beijing Workers' Gymnasium, including Eason Chan, Jay Chou, Harlem Yu, Fahrenheit, JJ Lin and Ocean. Everyone was glowing, like Ah Sa and Kay Tse who appeared in evening dresses by Paula Ka and Fendi respectively. Also, Hong Kong's most popular male singer Eason who has always liked a distinct style, wore a pleated skirt to receive his award, very shocking!

Ah Sa who has been developing her career by herself since last year, achieved great results at the awards ceremony, receiving two awards "Most Popular Female Artist (Hong Kong)" and "Media Award (Hong Kong)" while her duet with JJ Lin "Little Dimples" bravely won "Best Duet", you could say she achieved a lot! However, when she was singing the award-winning song, she suddenly stopped. Later on Ah Sa said, "Just then, I was suddenly choked on some smoke so I couldn't continue singing." "Who is more popular, you or Ah Gil?" "I've been with her since I entered the business, we're a group, so we're both the same!" Furthermore, Harlem, Eason and Jay Chou received 3, 5 and 6 awards respectively, everyone was happy!

Other than that, Kay Tse who stepped onto the Beijing award ceremony stage for the first time, won two awards for her song "Street of Invitations to Happiness". In regards to negative news increasing a person's popularity, she said, "A lot of negative news is simple hyped up by the media. The type of singer I am, can be understood by the audience over time and through singing opportunities." She also expressed that she hopes to release a Mandarin album next year, "A Mandarin album is my dream because it can allow me to become closer with the people of Mainland China. I hope next year, I'll have more time to interact with everyone in China."

Besides receiving many awards at the ceremony, this evening also arranges singers from different places to "crossover". For example, Singaporean singer JJ Lin sang with Justin Lo, taking on the challenger of idol Michael Jackson's "You Are Not Alone"; while Fahrenheit, Jay Chou and Harlem, etc also went onstage together to perform many hit songs, raising the spirits of everyone at the event.

For Best Duet, I believe it's Charlene Choi & JJ Lin NOT Eason Chan.

Anyway, congrats to all of them! :)

these awards were actually correct in selecting popularity...too bad the name: sprite is just not a good name for an awards ceremony

The award for worst dressed has to go to Charlene? It looks like she's wearing a swimsuit gone wrong! What is wrong with the stylist that styles Twins? First Gillian looking pregnant in that tiered dress she wore to cell phone event, now skimpy shrivelled dress that Charlene's wearing!
