Crosstalk actor wins singer award causing controversy
Music Festival: Who has the final say on music and traffic?
Recently, a music festival awarded the “Most Breakthrough Male Singer Award” to a cross talk actor, which caused considerable controversy in the industry.
Some people commented on “absurdity” and “breaking through the bottom line of the Chinese music scene.” Some people think that many awards have long been separated from music, entertainment first, traffic first, so you don’t need to be too serious.
People in the industry believe that our own music festival should have its own cultural heritage. The current music festival lacks good music, and there is a lack of program organizers who really love music.
Music awards to comedians
Music critics are “ridiculous”
At a music festival held on the evening of November 29, a crosstalk actor won the “Most Breakthrough Male Singer Award”. Although the winner has previously released albums and singles, his identity is still a comedian.
In this regard, the “Poison Tongue” music critic Ding Taisheng has a large number of “ridiculous”, and said that awarding music awards to those who talk about cross talk is a breakthrough, “breaking the bottom line of the Chinese music world”, and ironically said, “One dare to give, the other dare want”.
Ding Taisheng also complained for many musicians who were immersed in their hard work. “Even if the music world is down, there are still so many singers struggling to make breakthroughs. Dare to be worthy of a cross talk?”
It is understood that the gold content of the awards for this music festival held in Shenzhen has yet to be considered. In addition to the cross talk actor, the invited singers are of limited popularity, such as Guan Li, Li Xinyi, Bai Jugang, Li Yugang, Jiang Yunsheng, Cai Zhuoyi, Dong Youlin, etc. According to the audience’s description, this “festival” looks like a large-scale fan meeting, and the awards are more like a show for fans to sell tickets.
Some netizens commented: “Break through my cognitive bottom line.”
“The Chinese music scene has no bottom line, and whoever has traffic will give awards.”
“It’s not ridiculous. Isn’t the review criteria for male singers and female singers only popular?”
“This is an awards ceremony controlled by capital.”
Most music festivals are reduced to commercial performances
Sometimes even a transaction
Xiaofei, a senior music agent and general manager of Beijing Yuyue Cultural Records, said in an interview with a reporter from the Beijing Youth Daily that a crosstalk actor won the music award, which sounds incredible.
“I don’t know the meaning of such a festival? The organizers really want to curry audiences and bring artists to them. It is undoubtedly hurting those artists who are immature.”
Xiaofei believes that as a music festival in the Mainland, it should have its own cultural heritage, and music has to go its own way. In these years, music festivals are rarely seen, because these so-called music festivals are not carrying the second dimension of Japan or practicing in Korea. Health culture, “Is the so-called platform really for the sound development of music? Communicating with Asia is not being thoroughly baptized by others, and communicating with the world is by no means helping Japanese and Korean music to fuel the flames.”
The well-known music critic Lu Shiwei introduced in an interview with a reporter from Beijing Youth Daily that most of the similar award ceremonies in China do not have award criteria. The list of artists to be invited is currently well-known and has a certain amount of traffic. If it is blunt, please invite whoever is popular. Awards are given to whoever can come, and even awards can be tailored.
“The organizer definitely wants to invite some very popular people to set up the scene. When they come, you have to design a so-called award for them in return.”
Lu Shiwei introduced that many so-called grand ceremonies are actually commercial projects. Commercial activities carried out in the name of awards are not particularly related to the fairness of real music awards. “Sometimes it is even a negotiation or a transaction. I will give you an award, give you a so-called exposure and so on, you come to support me.” Lu Shiwei said.
Actually missing a song
Senior musician Li Guangping said that unlike the past, many so-called music festivals do not have any selection criteria. To put it bluntly, the organizer sets up awards for self-entertainment. “The organizer uses this as a gimmick for singers. An award, reducing or not giving performance fees to promote certain sponsors or brands, nothing more.” Li Guangping said.
Senior music agent Xiaofei believes that what our music festival lacks is actually a piece of music that deserves its name, music that we will pay tribute to in a few years, and a show organizer who truly loves music. , Not the organizer of any business title. (Reporter Shou Penghuan)
