My picks. Note that I have no music tastes and most choices are purely based on prettiness. Hence why Tong Liya gets photos but no links to the performance, because the rest of the show must have switched costume and stage designers.
For the first time ever, the local channels completely overwhelmed CCTV in every aspect. Better songs, dances, stage design, and even funnier and less misogynist skits.

CCTV designers should be taking notes from the simple but so effective stage design for this. Also, I can’t believe this song wasn’t popular before.
