Amongst love rivals beating each other up backstage and protestors picketing outside, hopefully this year’s “China Music Awards” will be remembered for the performances of some of cpop’s top musicians instead. There are so many exciting collaborations, from the expected Jane Zhang and Wang Leehom, to the surprising Zhang Ziyi and Jay Chou, to random pairs like Zhang Jie and Angela Zhang, or the brilliant duet by Karen Mok and Li Yuchun.
My personal favorite – Li Yuchun and Karen Mok’s “Roses”
I know everyone in China ships Li Yundi and Wang Leehom, but I’m still not giving up on the girl of his dreams, Jane Zhang. The pair finally sings the full song conceived in a dream – Another Heaven .
Also watch Yu Kewei and Pan Yueyue’s “Dream Fields 梦田” here, Angela Zhang and Zhang Jie’s “When you believe” here, Jay Chou and Zhang Ziyi’s performance here, Kenji Wu and Wang Xiaomin’s “Everything for you 全部都给你” here, and Zhang Rui and Xin Xiaoqi’s “Embrace with love 深情相拥” here. And finish it up with an all-star collaboration of Descendents of the Dragon! :
