Taipei - It was a star-studded show by women and for women, but also a showcase of cleavage versus cleavage and other forms of friendly feminine rivalry.

Pop queens Tanya Chua, Na Ying, A-mei and Sandy Lam led a show in aid of abused girls on Sunday and they were joined by stars such as Jolin Tsai, Faith Yang, Matilda Tao and Dee Hsu, said Taiwan Apple Daily.

Chua kicked off the concert called Project WAO (Women As One) at Taipei Arena, singing her song Angel And Devil and performing duets including Yang's The Love I Gave and Suzanne Vega's Luka with Yang, Lam and Tsai.

For wearing a one-shoulder low-cut jumpsuit, Tsai was poked in the chest by Chua, said the report. Tsai shrugged it off, saying: "I must be in something revealing or I won't make the news pages."

She sang her dance hit, The Artist, and as well as a plaintive Hokkien song, Female Dragon In A Sea Of Bitterness.

Na's segment featured Tao, who revealed how competitive the stars were backstage: Na, Tao said, was not thrilled to see Lam playing a guitar and Hsu kept wondering if her costume - all lace and leather - was sexy enough.

Na and Tao sang Tao's Too Wronged, which Na introduced as a "world-famous song", said China Times.

Later, Hsu brought the house down during A-mei's segment. Television host Hsu, who has made a career of playfully groping guests on her show,  pretended to bite the chest of A-mei, who wore a billowing dress with an uncharacteristically plunging neckline.

Spreading out her jokes, Hsu also told fans to cold-shoulder model Chiling Lin, who was set to speak at the show: "When Chiling Lin comes out and speaks, you can go home."

Lam's segment featured duets with A-mei, such as My Dearest. The show, which aimed to raise NT$10 million (S$414,330), closed with a speech by Lin, and a performance by the four headliners and 14 abuse victims.
