So, the official lists of the torch-bearers have been coming out. Here are the entertainers who have made it so far. Do you guys think they deserve it?

Eason Chan-for Hong Kong
Kelly Chen-for Hong Kong
Jacky Cheung
Han Geng (Super Junior)-through Coca-cola
Chris Lee
Wang Lee Hom-through Coca-cola-(he already ran his section today(03242008) in Greece)
Xue, Zhi Qian
Jane Zhang
*update 1*
Zhang Ziyi (why her? I heard she switched nationalities)
Gao Yuan Yuan
Li Bing Bing
Lang Lang (the pianist)
*update 2*
JJ Lin-through Samsung -for Singapore
*update 3*
Jang Na Ra- for Korea

In my opinion, as much as I love Han Geng, he doesn't seem to have done enough. But you have to admit, the voting power of millions of fans is hard to turn down, and he does fit the minority criteria.

Wang Lee Hom is indisputably the most deserving out all of them. I mean, he promotes Peking opera, minority music, and environmental safety. He even gave out reusable chopsticks and used recyclable paper in his CD.

He's not just nominated. He's been approved by the Olympic committee. He's even one of the representatives who will read the official oath... I heard over half of SJ's going to go to China just for that ceremony.

But Jay Chou just sings. He hasn't really done anything to make the world a better place. One of the criterion is to have an Olympic spirit. Plus, they had to go through testing on Olympic knowledge(which I heard Han Geng was really nervous about). Jay's probably too busy to memorize all that stuff.

True...personally, I only truly approve of Lee Hom's nomination. He did try to help through his music. He tried to revive traditions, recorded a lot of valuable traditional music, and help the environment.

Han Geng, though he didn't do it on purpose, did help bridge Chinese-Korean pop culture...and he did get in by popular vote. No one else (like the Super girls and Happy Boys) have really done much.

Sure I guess but it's not like they've done anything to change the world..

Eason Chan-for Hong Kong
He is quite popular but I don't like him that much...


Han Geng (Super Junior)-through Coca-cola
He is ok. I think it's because they chose him since he is in a Korean group.


Wang Lee Hom-through Coca-cola
Great choice!
As a singer and composer, Leehom is very talented and he sings about China.

Lang Lang
Even better! My mom told me to play the flute well and one day I can meet Lang Lang and I can marry him... He is talented and his song can make the England prince cry
