Event Details

Cowabunga! It's going to be a bodacious night dude! Break out those chunky leg warmers, parachute pants, preppy sweaters and Madonna-inspired leather & lace bodysuits 'cause we're rocking to the 80's at the American Ball 2020. So let's get into the groove and jet back to the days when radical meant MTV, VHS tapes and the Sony Walkman. Join us and you'll say, I've had the time of my life!

AmCham China's famous Silent and Live Auction returns with an incredible array of luxury, home, travel, fashion and dining bargains for one night only! Proceeds from the Ball will support local charitable causes.

Since 2003, through the American Balls and your generous support, AmCham China has donated over RMB 14.5 million towards improving the lives of thousands of families in China.

Lip Sync Battle 对口型大作战

Always wanted to sound like a Rock Star? Step Up!

For the first time ever on the AmCham China stage, contestants will fight it out in an epic brawl for the Lip Sync Battle Trophy.

Going solo or with your crew, you'll "lip sync sing" and move to your favorite recorded song, no voices required! 

So get your "Thriller" on, your wedding dress for "Like a Virgin", your welder's helmet for Flashdance or your Proton Pack 

Blaster for who you gonna call? "Ghostbusters!"

Lip Sync song must be a selection from the 80's USA Billboard Top Hits 

Finalists will be notified before the event and invited to dance it off at The American Ball 2020 - Totally Awesome 80's.

Finalists will receive 2 complementary tickets to the American Ball 2020

A panel of judges will crown the Lip Sync Battle Champion at the event

What to Wear

What a feeling! Let's get physical with neon workout gear or command the room as a Master of the Universe with big shoulder pads and even bigger hair. Or are you a Glam Rocker and Hungry Like the Wolf or maybe desperately seeking Susan in corsets, leather and plenty of lace?

The 80's had it all from preppy sweater sets to Top Gun wannabes to Mr.T chunky gold chains and chest-baring vests that cried out "I pity the fool!"

So who you gonna call to get the baddest look this side of the Ghostbusters?

Dress: Black tie or Big Hair, Mullets and Glam Rock
