“Star China is thrilled with the ratings’ performance for the entire first season of Sing! China, our new singing talent show/format. Audiences were so enthusiastic that we earned millions of viewers on Zhejiang Satellite TV along with billions of views online.

The response was better than we could have ever hoped for and Star China is proud to have presented a fantastic music show which has now been renewed for a second season,” said Xia.

Sing! China is an original music talent show created by Canxing Production which searches to find talented singers with dreams to attain recognition in the Chinese music industry. Four main judges each ride a chariot and rush to the stage to choose the contestant they desire.

Sing! China earned major online visibility early in the season. Within its first two days, the show received over 500 million total views on Tencent and Youku video sites and broke online records by receiving over 37 billion views for the first season.
