Remember when I posted about this? The Chinese talent show Singer 歌手 has just concluded another season and after narrowing competition down to the final four: Tengger, Hua Chenyu, Jessie J and Wang Feng, we have a winner! Jessie J walks away with the top prize following her powerful rendition of I Will Always Love You.
I don’t actually watch the show regularly, but I really wanted to tune in for the final competition which is usually known to be quite epic. And it is, my ears feel blessed.
Hua Chenyu wins most popular song for Qi Tian, a song that he composed and sang for the movie Wu Kong. I’m seeing him on tv for the first time despite his explosive popularity, and it’s no wonder he’s trending online because the guy has mad skills!
His duet for Light Years Away with G.E.M. was easily my favorite for the night. I’ll link it here when it becomes available (Update: added below). G.E.M. originally sang the same song for the Hollywood movie Passengers.
In case anyone’s interested to watch, you can catch the episode on Youtube. Beginning 18:52, Jessie J, Coco Lee and Kz Tandingan have an impressive sing off.
