Whether or not Zeng Yike advances to the next round of China’s most popular reality talent show, the kudos and boos surrounding her will continue.
Yet unlike Susan Boyle on Britian’s Got Talent,who swept people away with her voice,Zeng,a 19-year-old girl From Hunan,has been criticized for not being able to sing in key and has been told she “sound like a sheep”
"I think it is a crime for a TV station to broadcast such music.
They treat all Chinese people like they’re stupid.TV stations are public resources-they are fooling people with their own taxes,"
Jin Zhaojun,secretary-general of the Chinese Musicians Association told Oriental Morning Post
Jin said he is not disappointed with Zeng,but with the program’s creators,
He even said Happy Girls judges were"talking rubbish"during their interviews
But others have been smitten by Zeng’s creativity and simple style,and how she plays a guitar to sing songs she wrote herself
A month ago,judge Bao Xiaobo said as long as Zeng stays he could not be part of the show and walked off the stage during the live broadcast.
It is unfair for the other contestants,"Bao said later
Many netizens supported Bao but Zeng’s fans said the critics were too mean to her.
Musician Gao Xiaosong joined the jury in Bao’s place and praised Zeng.
She has a couple of her own pieces.
Her style is clear and easy to follow
As long as there is a style,she can (get help to produce an album)
Gao said to Guangzhou-based Southern Metropolis Weekly.
The story became even more dramatic when Bao returned to the jury.
On the lastest show,Bao drew a picture of a wooden house to refer to Zeng
This wooden house looks stable,but it doesn’t have a solid foundation,and if the wind blows
it will fall apart.Bao said
However,he showed a second picture with many tall buildings surrounding the wooden house
The lucky thing is ,you are protected by these buildings
Li Hao,spokesman for the show’s producer,predicted this year would see a 50-percent increase over 2006 and 2007
The july 17 show won a 12 percent market share,the top ranking show that night.
But a survey on popluar social networking site Kaixin001.com shows 84 percent of the Happy Girl’s audience is disappointed with the program this year.
It is no longer a program looking for divas-to-be,but clowns who attract audiences with stupid tricks
它不再是一个寻找歌神的节目，而是用愚蠢的伎俩吸引观众的小丑 said Chinese music critic Ruan Hexiang with a Beijing-based newspaper.
