Yes. Even Mandopop isn't as popular as it was last decade. Same goes for J-pop. Korea is dominating everything. Just like English songs, even if ppl can't understand Korean it's popular.

Bollywood and Indian pop seems holding strong though.

Not as powerful as him though, but there is Show Lo (taiwanese too), JJ Lin ( Singaporean mandopop singer) and Wang Lee Hom... Wang Lee Hom is a little bit considered history too..But Show Lo and JJ lin are still very active in the mandopop scene

I've lived in Mainland China for 13 years now. 10 in Shanghai and now 3 in Guangzhou. It's a very relaxing and comfortable place to live when your young. Exciting, fun, and much more interesting then other developed nations. It doesn't come with challenges and negative experiences, that's for sure. You need to be patient and open minded. An interest in either/all the language, history, culture would help you find more at peace when living here.

Most people in China are not fluent in English, so they will always prefer Chinese products.
Top Chinese TV series got much higher rates than American ones. Although Hollywood movies generally beat Chinese movies, the ones with the highest sales records are 50% domestic (but Avatar set the top 1 record).

Well, yes, but China gov't does restrict the number of foreign movies into the country. That might help inflate the China movie numbers.

It seems that the mainland market has been attracting more and more entertainment talents from the Chinese speaking communities all over the world. In the recent I am the singer show, there was the phenominal success by Deng Ziqi, a young singer from HK, Xi La, a girl from Malaysia, who does not really speak Chinese. And many Taiwan singers are just making their living in the Mainland. You can see them on Mainland shows every day, like Tao zhe, zhang yu, etc.
