Years ago when Jacky was on The Million Singers (百萬大歌星), someone claimed that he was very lucky to have stayed on for that long, considering how some of the songs he chose were very hard. I had believed that person because from Jacky’s expression, it indeed seemed like he had several close calls on there.
However, years later and his later visits to the show, I realized that was a wrong assumption to make from that person. Mostly because Jacky was known to be more familiar with oldies than newer songs. It had a lot to do with his mother’s love for oldies that had influenced his route. Harlem Yu had also chided him for opting for the new song (among the choices) when he was kicked off that one time, saying he shouldn’t have forced himself to pick newer songs.
