Singaporean singer Joanna Dong says her third-place finish in the Chinese reality singing contest Sing! China has made her even more confident of pursuing a professional singing career.
The 35-year-old, one of five contestants who made it to the competition’s grand finals held at Beijing’s Bird’s Nest Stadium last night, was knocked out in the second round of the finale, after a duet with her mentor Jay Chou as well as a solo song.
As Dong took her final bow on the stage, she maintained a brave smile but did not say anything.
After she exchanged a handshake with her mentor, Taiwanese Mandopop superstar Jay Chou, he remarked in Mandarin: “It’s such a pity.”
Tibetan teacher Zha Xi Ping Cuo, 30, beat Chinese student Guo Qin, 17, for the title.
A combination of votes from the audience and industry professionals determined the winner.
Let’s recap all thew wonderful performances Joanna graced us with during her time on the reality show, where she became only the second Singapore to advance to the finals following Nathan Hartono last year:
