In other news:

Baby Chou's name has been revealed:

Jay has also reportedly scaled back on year-end activities to spend more time with his family. As such, he will not be performing at any New Year's Eve concerts, whether in Taipei or China.
His concert schedule is listed till mid-December.
Wonder where the Chous will be spending Christmas and New Year.... ;)

And he and Hannah hope to have Baby No 2 in 2016!

Hannah has also praised her husband for taking care of Hathaway's night feeds, emphasising that even though he appears to be very busy, he does spend a fair amount of time at home whenever possible.

More cute nuggets of info about Daddy Jay regarding diapers, milk and Machi:

Diaoness Updates: The Voice of China final two rounds

The ten-to-five battle round was broadcast on 30 September 2015 and was an even more nailbiting episode than the previous round!
Chen Zitong and Leon Li An from Team Jay Chou were up against the cream of the crop from the other teams, with voting from media representatives as well as the audience.
Everything was timed to perfection and percentages, with countdowns showing the progress of the voting process.

At the end of the round, both students from Jay's team qualified for the final round to be held at the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing on 7 October 2015!

Here is a link to Leon's performance:

And the link to the full vid:

The Grand Final was held on 7 October at the Bird's Nest Stadium.

Check out the Diaoness Page for more links and pics!
Too many to post here.

In the end, it was the guitar-strumming Zhang Lei from Na Ying's team who won the hearts of the fans and judges with his soulful voice. :)

No problem for Leon and Zitong, though.

They gave it their all and have come away from this all the more richer in experience and bragging rights about having been Jay Chou's students in his inaugural appearance as mentor.

And Jay had these words for them:

Updates: Kung Fu Panda 3; Opus 2 Foshan

Time for some updates!

Breaking news during the week was that Jay would be the voice of Monkey in the China release of Kung Fu Panda 3 which is scheduled for 29 January 2016.

I don't know about you guys but I absolutely loved the first two installments of this movie about the loveable Po and have been looking forward to Part Three.
Point to note is that although the original movie is in English, the Mandarin and Cantonese-dubbed versions were also very enjoyable.
However, as the movie will be screened in English here in Singapore, the only way I'll get to listen to Jay will be when the DVD is released.
Anyway, there should be a fair amount of promotional events related to this so it will be fun!

Doesn't he look cool?

Trailer in Chinese:

NB: listen out for Jay's signature phrase! :)


On to Opus 2 Jay in Foshan on 26 September 2015!

Leon Lee and Chen Zhitong, two of Jay's students from his Voice Of China team had the most amazing opportunity to sing with him at Opus 2 Jay in Foshan last night.
I'm pretty sure he wanted them to have the experience of singing in front of a huge audience before their final battle at the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing.
That was just so typical of Jay, always wanting to do his best to support young talents and of course, deep down inside, he would love to win!

Leon sang What Kind Of Man with Jay:

Chen Zhitong of course sang Nunchucks!

Jay with fans:

Jay sang in Cantonese!


To end off, here's wishing all a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

And a cute pic with his drummer, Mr Q. :)
