Top Chinese superstars: Sammi Cheng, Faye Wong and more
Who's hot in China? We asked our twitter followers for their favourite Chinese celebrities. Sammi Cheng, 38-year-old Hong Kong Cantopop singer and actress, topped their list. Think Canto-Gaga. Since her debut, she's had the highest selling albums and won the top Female Vocalist awards in her genre, says Wikipedia.
Next on the list is Andy Hui (aka An Jai), Hong Kong singer-actor and Cheng's (above) on-again, off-again boyfriend (they're currently on), is ridiculously popular. And he's all about community and giving back. He was crowned one of Ten Outstanding Young Persons. What a prince.

Andy Lau, Hong Kong Cantopop singer-actor, is one of most succesful actors and one of Four Heavenly Kings of Cantopop and ranked third place in our little contest. Lau's a succesful multi-tasker. (He juggles music and acting and still manages to stay on top). Looking good, Andy.

Jin Au-Yeung (aka Mc Jin) is a rapper with sick beats. His flow is killer. Jin was the first Chinese solo rapper to be signed by a major record label: Universal Music Group Hong Kong. Shoot For The Moon, his newest song, just came out a few days ago. Nice.
"Life inspires me, and people who really listen," Jin told VO.
