On December 4, Jay Chou won numerous awards at the Baidu Awards, and during his acceptance speech, came to suggest that celebrities stop dancing to Gangnam Style.

As soon as he made the statement, it immediately made issues on the Chinese web. Weibo has even been hosting a netizen vote on the matter.

Weibo uploaded a poll asking users whether they agree with the statement, with the two choices being, ′Chinese music is stronger. I agree′ and ′Is there a need to go so far? I disagree.′

90,781 netizens have voted up to the morning of December 6. Out of that total, 73,240 people have said they agree, while a mere 17,541 have said they disagree.

The poll, in the meantime, has gathered more than 100 million comments from netizens in a hot debate.
