BEIJING – Kit Chan charmed with her jazzy version of Leslie Cheung’s Left, Right Hands, but still did not secure a ticket to the final of Hunan TV’s I Am A Singer, said Chinese reports.
In the breakout round that aired in China last night, stars who had been eliminated in early episodes (including Singapore’s Chan, Hong Kong’s Leo Ku and China’s Anson Hu) vied for a place in the final with singers who had not done well the previous week (China’s Li Jian, South Korea’s The One and Taiwan’s Ricky Hsiao Huang-chi).
Li won the breakout round, said NetEase website. He sang the Mandarin version of the theme song of the 2003 Korean weepie The Classic.
Hu, The One and Chinese singer Tan Weiwei also secured places in the final, where they will meet Chinese stars Sun Nan, Han Hong and Taiwanese singer A-lin.
The One is the stage name of Jeong Sun Won, a successful contestant from the Korean version of I Am A Singer. Hunan TV’s adaptation of the show is now in its third season.
