If people hadn't quite recovered from the shock of the first video then after playing the second video, everybody who was late to react at the awards ceremony finally came to.
Before the video could finish, the scene erupted and the sheer volume masked what Qian Ge and the other woman said in the video.
Some people were rather close to the cameras, so their voices were clear enough to be heard during the live broadcast for millions of people tuning into the television awards ceremony.
"What the hell's going on? Who's the woman in the recording?"
"That woman recorded Ji Yi's scenes and secretly gave them to Qian Ge?"
"The recent incident about Ji Yi plagiarizing has gotten so big. If Ji Yi really did it, shouldn't someone be giving her recordings of Qian Ge's scenes? Why's it the other way around?"
Not only were the people below the stage in heated discussion, but the two presenters on stage both had looks of confusion and doubt on their faces.
Ever since the first video played, it was like Qian Ge's pressure points had been hit. She blinked a few times before her mind finally started to churn again.
How could this kind of video get leaked? Who did this? Was this premeditated?
This ain't right... I can't be thinking about this now. The awards are live! C city's television network has always had high ratings and tonight, all the stars are gathered here. Who knows how many people are in front of the TV right now, and after seeing this kind of video, it'll undoubtedly pique everyone's suspicions.
It took me so much work just to push Ji Yi into a dead end like this. I definitely can't let it all be for nothing!
So I have to now turn the tables in front of everyone in the entire nation!
Qian Ge's mind quickly tried to think up a plan as she analyzed the situation in her mind.
Li Yaoyao was someone who worked for her. She spent a lot of energy to plant her by Ji Yi's side just to sabotage Ji Yi with this whole plagiarizing incident... Li Yaoyao came today, and she even saw her just now... She wasn't shown in the video now, but her voice was heard...
With those scattered thoughts flashing across Qian Ge's mind, she suddenly calmed down as she just thought of an escape route.
For the video to be leaked, it must've been done by someone at YC to save Ji Yi's image.
Alright then... I'm going to play it by ear and cut off all chances of Ji Yi ever making a comeback!
At that thought, a cold smirk flashed in Qian Ge's eyes. Then she said into the mic: "First, I don't know who's playing a prank on me."
"I know that person in the video - she's Ji Yi's assistant, Li Yaoyao."
"I believe everyone has heard about the recent situation surrounding the leading actress for 'The Tempestuous Grand Tang' plagiarizing my performance in 'The Legend of Qingcheng.' Being involved in such a nasty scandal could undoubtedly ruin someone's future. Yet, no normal person is willing to helplessly watch their future being ruined, so it's no wonder that some people would try to frame other people to save themselves!"
Qian Ge sounded very vague, but the viewers weren't stupid. Everybody knew what she really meant. She was implying that Ji Yi was the one who played the video to slander her!
