The 2014 Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant has come to a close after the Final tonight at the Vancouver Convention Centre. It was an exhilarating evening for all Gala Dinner guests and the show’s TV and mobile app audience.
A big congratulations to Contestant #3 Erica Chen for being crowned this year’s Miss Chinese Vancouver Champion. She was also awarded Miss Photogenic. Erica demonstrated exceptional poise and confidence throughout the evening. Not only was her talent performance of guzheng captivating, but her ability to answer the judge and emcees’ tough Q&A questions scored her points and applause from the audience.
Contestants #9 Maggie Wu and #1 Jessica Hsu were crowned First and Second Runner-Up respectively. During the talent segment, Maggie (also Miss Friendship) wooed the audience with her impressive ballet skills, whIch also won her the talent award of the evening, while Jessica delivered an exciting belly dance routine. All contestants were gracious when the Champion was crowned, demonstrating the ten contestants’ strong bond in friendship and camaraderie.
Special guest performer Alfred Hui 許廷鏗 sang four songs just before the final segment of the evening. And his highly anticipated performance did not disappoint. Passionate deliveries of 再戰明天, 螞蟻, 青春頌, and 福氣 showed off his expressive vocals. (Alfred fans, check out our AX3 exclusive interview with the rising star here. He spoke to us about his recent projects and upcoming album!)
The evening, themed “Be My Princess”, was also littered with other talented performances from local Vancouverites. The Inner Ring Circus, DJ Jeremy, Herbert Kwan, Eric Chen, and former Sunshine Boyz helped make the 2014 Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant Final an unforgettable event.
Once again, congratulations to Erica, Maggie, and Jessica! We wish them and all the other contestants all the best in their future endeavours!
