Singer-songwriter JJ Lin 林俊杰 recently apologised to Jolin Tsai 蔡依林 for neglecting her on stage during a music awards in Shenzhen.
The incident happened at QQ Music Awards when JJ Lin and Jolin Tsai were on stage receiving their awards. Host Huang Zijiao 黃子佼 invited G.E.M. Tang on stage to perform a new duet ‘Rose in my palm’ (手心的薔薇) with JJ Lin. An embarrassed Jolin was left stranded on stage for a good part of the song. Angry Jolin fans who felt sorry for the singer took it to the web to voice their unhappiness with the two performers, lambasting about their rude behaviour.
Host Huang said that the programming that night might have been too tight, leaving little room for pleasantries. Hence Jolin was unwittingly left on stage as an ‘audience’ to the duet. Huang apologised to Jolin immediately after the incident.
Speaking to the media to promote his upcoming Hong Kong Coliseum concert recently, Lin said that he had personally apologised to Jolin and even offered to write a song for her to salvage the situation.
