Isn't technology marvelous?

Every year CCTV in China holds a Spring Festival Gala to usher in the New Year. It is usually a who's who of all the biggest names in entertainment in China and this is no exception. Jackie has been on the show many times in the past and this year is no exception. However there is only one problem. They have been recording the show in Beijing over the last 2 days and he is in Taiwan filming Chinese Zodiac. Solution - recording a duet with Liu Yuanyuan via video link. They will be singing Min Sheng (Livelihood)


In other news about this year's Gala - Warren Buffet is also singing and playing guitar.

So, this is kind of weird, but also cool. Billionaire investor and philanthropist Warren Buffett is singing and playing guitar for a Chinese gala that will be broadcast on the internet Jan. 23 for the Lunar New Year of the Dragon, Chinese press announced Thursday (Jan. 5).

The performance has already been videotaped, but they are staying mum on what song Buffett performs.

"We all know that Buffett is good at investment, but fe knew he also did well in singing," Wang Pingjiu, a production executive for the Spring Festival Web Gala, was quoted as saying.

The gala will be broadcast on and will also feature film star Jackie Chan.

Interestingly, we thought perhaps Chan and Buffett would both be born in a Year of the Dragon, but that is not the case. They are both Year of the Horse babies.
