Live Stages Round-Up

Bai Bing, Ning Jing, Wang Likun, Yu Kewei and Wang Feifei are definitely making waves in this zhongguofeng-styled banger.

R1SE in a rendition of Roles have no big or small 角儿无大小. This is really their best style – mostly rap + some opera. Yan Xujia and He Luoluo are missing for college examinations. Yan Xujia got into Beijing Film Academy, not sure about He Luoluo. Congrats to Yan Xujia for being the final member of X-Fire to get accepted into college!
