We have bad news for fans of a duke who appeared to be sailing along smoothly on the Star Awards Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes rankings: after six weeks, Jeffrey Xu has dropped out of the latest combined results as of 2pm yesterday (April 11). It is the 27-year-old’s first time being up for the Top 20, and supporters have less than two weeks to vote if they want to see him bring home a trophy at Star Awards Part 2 on April 24.
There are even more unfortunate eliminations over at the ladies’ side, with Paige Chua and Tong Bing Yu getting the boot. Both starlets have had a rocky ride in the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes updates – Bing Yu only managed to appear in week three, while Paige has been in and out of the list over the past couple of weeks.
On the bright side, these dismissals have made room for two comebacks and one new addition. Shane Pow and Dennis Chew, who both failed to make the cut in week three, have finally made their return to the rankings after a long (and for their fans, worrying) absence. The female artistes rundown also welcomes Quan Yi Fong for the first time this week. If the bubbly host is still in by the time the final results are read at Star Awards Part 1 this Sunday night (April 17), she will finally get to graduate into the All-Time Favourite Artistes hall of fame next year.
