The Year of the Rabbit isn’t until February of 2011, but there are already rumors of who will be performing at next year’s CCTV Spring Festival Gala. The Chinese New Year extravaganza is watched by a billion viewers every year. Stars that are lucky enough to be invited often get a major career boost after appearing on the show.
Back in January, 80s Taiwanese boygroup The Little Tigers reunited for a special performance in the gala. Their surprise reunion was not only a huge hit with the audience, but also with concert organizers. Offers made to the group reportedly had a 30% price increase.
Although F4 hasn’t been around as long as the “Tigers”, they will be celebrating their tenth year in 2011. Viewers sure won’t mind seeing them on TV, and fans are apparently starting a petition in hopes they will reunite for a 10-year anniversary concert. F4’s manager didn’t deny about receiving an offer from CCTV, but said they are awaiting more details. The managers for each member will be returning to Taiwan in a few days, so they hope to begin negotiations on working out their schedules first.
It doesn’t seem extremely difficult to bring Vic Chou, Ken Chu and Van Ness Wu together, but Jerry Yan’s status is still up in the air. He hasn’t been in the best of health lately, and he might have a busy movie-filming schedule on the way. The rest of F4 are currently preoccupied with their own activities – Vic Chou is filming his new drama “回家 (Returning Home)”, Van Ness Wu is about to begin work on Material Queen, and Ken Chu is busy with blogging. The poetic blogger recently posted some lyrics that he wrote himself:
“By now, what else needs to be proven. Your departure, it has buried my heart. Let me cry, let my tears wash away my sadness…”
Many fans believed he was in fact writing about his recent break up with actress Kelly Lin. However, his manager denied it saying, “It was written during his free time in between filming. It’s nothing special.”
