“Singing with Kids” potentially the best singing competition of the season

Not going
Not going to lie, this is so far my favorite competition of the year so far.

The kids version of the Voice, with the four judges (Yu Quan, Aska Yang, and Chen Ming)  pressing a button to build a “rainbow bridge” for the kids they want, and then the kids picking the one they want as a coach.  In addition to lots of adorable kids, great singing, the interaction between the coaches are also extremely cute.   Some highlight performances of the show far.  “Singing with Kids” airs on Golden Eagle Cartoon every Sunday.  You may also catches glimpses of the performances on Taiwan’s CTV, which has been airing the show through “news clips” in a similar fashion as “I am Singer.”

Wang Ruizhuo is no doubt one of the teachers’ favorites. Aska Yang has already proclaimed her to be a future queen of music. Listen to her cover of a true queen, Stephanie Sun’s “Dreams never fall.”
