Having overcome a series of challenges, 8 contestants have successfully made it to the Final of “Unforgettable Golden Classics Singing Contest”. After more than a month of intensive training, they have launched a roadshow at the Chinatown Plaza marking the first step to chase their dreams.
“Unforgettable Golden Classics Singing Contest” was honoured to invite Edward Wong representing Chinatown Plaza, Fairchild TV Marketing and Sales Controller Helen Lee and Fairchild TV host William Ho to form the judge panel for the roadshow. Counting down to the event opening, an enormous crowd of fans started to accumulate to show their support. At the Contest Final, the contestants will compete in 2 groups led by MC’s Ting Ting Niu and Mandy Chan. On this very occasion, Team leader and roadshow MC Ting Ting first took the stage to introduce #2 Kat Siu, #3 Frank Yang, #5 Mandy Jackson, and #8 Ao Li in her team. Substitute leader Steven Yang was proud to announce members of Team Mandy including #1 Dylan Gao, #4 Wendy He, #6 Lulu Kao and #7 Stevic Lau. Both teams look determined and ready to conquer the stage!
To kick off the competition, William Ho was invited to pick a favourite music style. “Cheerful and energetic!” he declared. The adorable Kat brought forth the light-hearted “Sunny Day”, enlightening the crowd with positivity and sweetness.
To fight against Kat, Lulu who sang “Crescent Moon Bay” in a very delicate yet exquisite manner, creating the notion of a light breeze that passed through the hearts of the attending guests.
Next group chosen to battle was #8 Ao Li vs. #7 Stevic Lau. The purity of Ao’s voice depicted vividly the sadness in “The Chaos After You”.
Singing coach Stevic counter-attacked with “Black Humour,” which showcased his ability to handle falsetto at ease
Up next is #3 Frank Yang singing “Empty Spaces” with his rival Dylan who competed with “Love is like a Tide.” In spite of his young age at 15, Frank was able to release the intense emotions of the song.
The edgy Dylan delivered emotional context while also creating an upbeat vibe with his rap.
The final round of competitions consisted of #5 Mandy Jackson and # Wendy He. Mandy celebrated the power of “Love” but lamented the reality that passion will eventually die down even after a fierce ignition.
Wendy’s rendition of “Thinking of You on a Lonely Night” touched the hearts of the audience deeply.
The outstanding performances of the finalists made the judges gruesomely hard to make a decision! To relieve the tension of the competition, two sweet little performers Chloe and Rhea emerged and rocked the stage with “I Believe”. The girls were nothing less than the big brothers and sisters who previously showcased their music talents but managed to sing their hearts out without hesitation, winning a thunderous round of applause. Wishing these two cute firecrackers all the best at their music journey and looking forward to seeing them shine onstage again soon!
After an in-depth discussion, the judges voted unanimously for #1 Dylan Gao as the Champion while the extremely supportive fans of #5 Mandy Jackson captured the “Best Fans Award”. Through this precious experience, the 8 finalists have gained more confidence and are all equipped for the second roadshow taking place on June 15th!
