There are plenty of reasons to love Nathan Hartono, not least because he proudly represented Singapore in the Sing! China final in Beijing.
Nathan, who came in second place, had competed against five other contestants in the final held at the National Stadium which was won by China’s Jiang Dunhao.
He picked two Jay Chou classics – singing the Nunchucks rap hit with his mentor and the Longest Movie ballad by himself.
In case you missed it, catch one of his performances here:
After the two rounds, spectators at the stadium voted and the top two scorers – Nathan with 35,577 votes and Jiang Dunhao, who had the highest score of 39,962 votes – got to vie for the crown through another solo performance.
Nathan then sang a medley of Moonlight in the City and Woman Flower – songs by Singaporean singer Mavis Hee and Hong Kong legend Anita Mui respectively.
But in the end, it was the Xinjiang-native who triumphed. Nathan received 45,613 of votes while Jiang garnered 59,852 votes from spectators.
