They may have had a steady start in the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes race, but unfortunately, fans’ votes were not enough to keep Ya Hui and Paige Chua in the list for the fourth week running and they are nowhere to be found in the latest rankings.
Taking their coveted spots are Felicia Chin and Joanne Peh, who dropped out of the race last week and the week before respectively. Supporters of Joanne had better continue to buck up with their balloting if they want to see her join husband Qi Yuwu in the prestigious All-Time Favourite Artiste hall of fame next year – with nine trophies currently under her belt, she will need one last one in order to qualify for the honour.
In no order of ranking, the remaining eight spots on this week’s Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes update are filled by Belinda Lee, Carrie Wong, Jayley Woo, Jesseca Liu, Julie Tan, Kym Ng, Rebecca Lim and Tong Bing Yu.
Over at the gentlemen’s side, we see host Lee Teng back in the running for the Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes after a two-week absence. Unfortunately, this means that someone else has to go, and in this week’s case, it was Zhang Yao Dong, who clinched a spot after the second round of votes a couple of weeks ago.
In no order of ranking, the remaining nine spots on this week’s Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes update are filled by Aloysius Pang, Elvin Ng, Jeffrey Xu, Pornsak, Romeo Tan, Shaun Chen, Xu Bin, Zhang Zhen Huan and Zheng Geping.
We still have three (for female artistes) and four (for male artistes) weeks left until the Top 20 awards are officially given out, so don’t give up hope (if your favourites are out) nor rest on your laurels (if they are still in) because the final outcome still very much depends on your votes.
Telepoll hotlines and online voting for the Star Awards 2016 Top 20 Most Popular Artistes are now open until April 17, 8.30pm (for female artistes) and April 24, 8.30pm (for male artistes).
