The finale for “I am Singer” is every bit as awesome as it was expected to be, with some really amazing collaborations.The finale is probably the first mainland singing competition to be aired live both in mainland and Taiwan, not to mention in live-streamed in theatres across China. Actually, the show has been reported so much in the Taiwanese media that some politicians are warning of the show as a brain-washing tool.
Here are some of idarklight’s favorite performances of the night. There are a few misses, but overall the show was great. You can watch HD versions of all the episodes as well as collections of the individual singer’s performances on YouTube.
First up is Tan Weiwei and Zhou Xiao’ou‘s folk meets rock No party unended. Tan Weiwei really pwn’ed everyone as soon as she opened her mouth.
Aska Yang and Li Quan duets a sexy rendition of I want us together. The way that Aska Yang looks at Li Quan at 2:45 is quite suspicious …
Terry Lin performs Exaggeration in a white
dress prince suit. If you haven’t heard it yet, I also highly recommend his cover of Jay Chou’s Cooling Fireworks.
Julia Peng and Shunzi does a mix of two powerful songs – Beer bottle for sale and I have nothing . I feel like Shunzi’s movements were a bit over on the stage, but their voices sound great together.
Amongst the returning performances, Laure Shang wow’ed with a cover of Faye Wong’s Bored that included her own French flair.
And of course, who to better conclude with than Yu Quan? The two finished the competition as if it were one huge concert. The song, To all those who know my name, was originally prepared for their last song of their last concert. Hopefully now that they’ve sung it already, they’ll never separate and sing forever!
