^Super Generation to perform at 2009 Asia Song Festival with Major Idols/Artists.
I am impressed with this years selected artists, esp the chinese ones O_O. If you have cantobackground, you’d know just how AMAZING the Four Heavenly Kings are. SNSD and SuJu to be performing along side them… what an HONOUR for Super Generation. Li Yu Chun is performing also?! Double wow!
Rumor is that 2 more artist(s) from Korea and a very high level Asian artist will be added. I can’t wait! I think it’ll probably be someone outside of SM entertainment (well obviously). I can’t wait to find out who they are! Read the following article for more detailed information!

Excited! Just so you know, the Four Heavenly Kings is consist of Andy Lau, Aaron Kwok, Jacky Cheung, and Leon Lai (the photo at the top is in this name order). They are AMAZING and LEGENDARY. They emerged in early 1990s, and even though they don’t perform as a group often, each are BATHED in success. Go wiki them up since I dont want to drone on and on.
Only extra comment is that Leon Lai is the boss of one of top artists in Hong Kong: Janice M. Vidal / Janice Wei / Wei Lan. Janice debuted in 2005 and emerged victorious and amazingly successful for a newbie for 2 years until her big break. To be honest, ever since her new come back, her popularity is still high but the lack of funds from her company is very obvious. With a handicap like that, she’s losing out to a lot of the richer artists out there. I just hope she works harder and makes better MVs for her next canto album ><! OH yeah if you haven’t figured out by now, I’m a huge Janice fan :P!
And Li YuChun is the winner of season 2 Super Girls, an American Idol type show in China. She is amazing! All winners of Super Girls are very influencial. So influencial that the goverment started worrying. The show was banned after the third season as the government was SCARED of democracy. But it picked back up this year for who knows what reason… I didnt bother watching this year so I have no clue :P!
Now to end my post, here’s a few of Janice’s english songs. She always includes 1 or 2 in her albums, and just this month she released a full english album titled: Morning. The album is amazingly refreshing for the HK Music Scene, the only problem I had with the songs is that some of them had crap lyrics.
Rookie Song: Never Let You Go (by the way the mouth isn’t matching because someone dubbed the video of the chinese version to the english version)
Do You Know Where You’re Going to
Pretty – Crappiest title ever, but I love this song. It’s my favourite out of her new english album.
