This year's first music 'report card' unfolds at the Metro Radio Hits Awards 2012. The 5 hour award show presented a total of 163 awards, Joey Yung and Eason Chan were the big winners, each with 4 awards. However, despite being one of the big winners, Joey did not have a single smile on her face throughout the night. When Metro presented the 'Female Singer' award to her, she disappeared and didn't appear even after calling her several times.
There were no surprises at the awards ceremony, Joey and Eason continued to be the leaders in the music scene. In particular, Joey wasn't that happy, actually she had a black face because boyfriend Wilfred Lau stood in the back row during the large group photo. When Metro called the couple up to accept their awards, Joey only chatted with Wilfred's ex-girlfriend Stephanie Cheng and then stayed backstage afterwards.
Khalil Fong won 3.5 awards; Raymond Lam, Hins Cheung, Kay Tse, Andy Hui, Kary Ng, Adason Lo, Fiona Sit and Eric Suen all won 3 awards. Kay expressed she's very happy to get an award despite not having any new albums. Dei Dik was surprised he got an award because he didn't have any plugs, but still won the duet award. However, the most questionable award was Linda Chung, she released her new album late in the year, but still shared the 'Metro Hits Female Singer Award' with GEM, Jade Kwan and Kary Ng.
This year Metro followed TVB and gave out awards to singers who were absent from the award ceremony including Leo Ku, Denise Ho and Miriam Yeung.
