Awards Ceremony for 2010 Asian Games

So the New Seven Little Fortunes will be singing again in Guangzhou on Friday (they sang at the first round of this competition as well) and the bit about using cell phones as electronic tickets is really interesting. I have a love for 'cool' uses of technology like this. I really liked Jackie's idea of making tickets a collector's item for his concerts so that people will take them home but this almost tops that having the added bonus of being paperless.

The 16th Asian Games, part of the worldwide Olympic movement and governed by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) announced that the 2nd Awards Ceremony for Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games Selected Songs will be held at Guangzhou Gymnasium,

Friday evening March 19 with 15 all-new Asian Games-themed songs to be presented.

The Asian Games are the second largest sports event in the world after the Summer Olympic Games.

Audience members will enter the Guangzhou Gymnasium venue with electronic tickets - mobile phone two-dimensional barcodes (instead of paper tickets) an effort to embrace the vision of a "low-carbon" Asian Games by China Mobile, a Prestige Partner of The 16th Asian Games.

A number of Asian superstars and newly emerged singers from the Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan will featured, including Priscilla Chan (Chan Wai-han); Chao Chuan; Sha Baoliang; Jin Haixin; Wang Ziming; Elanne Kwong (Kwong Yeuk-Lam); He Jie; the New Seven Little Fortunes (Xin Qi Xiao Fu, Jackie Chan's disciples) and Square (a Hong Kong boy band).

Another highlight at this ceremony will be the launch of China Mobile's 12530 Asian Games Songs Zone, allowing users to upload, download and listen to Asian Games-themed songs, vote for their favourite songs and singers by text and multimedia messaging and share Asian Games-themed colour rings with friends.

The ceremony will also kick off the third round solicitation of Asian Games-themed songs. Organizers will invite first-class musicians to write songs and music for the Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games then all the selected songs from the three rounds will be appraised by experts and the Theme Songs of the Asian Games will be unveiled, along with songs and music of other functions.
