If you are a China watcher, chances are you've been hearing a lot about a recent hit reality show: The Voice of China, a singing competition started in Holland and made popular in US. Yesterday, also the Mid-Autumn Festival, was the grand finale of The Voice, which has been receiving the highest ratings (a staggering above-40 percent) among all TV shows in mainland China.
I am a huge fan of the show. Even though the winners are not chosen by popular votes from all TV audience as is done in US, but by a combination of votes from 99 media representatives, and in the finale live performance, votes from attendees of the live show (without announcing the actual number of votes), I do like the final winner -- Liang Bo very much. My favorite contestant, Ping An, didn't break into the final Top 4.
Here are a list of my top picks from the first season of The Voice of China.
Blind Audition: Ping An (Team Yang Kun)
Second-round PK: Liang Bo (Team Na Ying)
First-round PK: Wang Yunyi Vs. Zhao Ke (Team Yu Chengqing)
First-round PK: Da Shan Vs. Chen Juntong (Team Yu Chengqing)
Third-round PK: Jike Junyi (Team Liu Huan)
Grand Finale: Liang Bo (Team Na Ying) -- CHAMPION!
Why I like Ping An the most: his performance in the top 16 round
