I gotta admit that with Wang Feng being Na Ying’s coach, I thought I was going to get blown away by everyone’s performances, but seems like expectations were too high. Plus, YouTube cockblocking my watching.

Since Wang Feng was there to coach too, all of the arrangments had a lot (or, at least, a little) to do with some aspect of rock — be it rock & roll or plain rock (except for Zhang Yu Xia’s battle) — so, in the end, there was a lot of A-Mei being played and there was some extra Wang Feng going on too.

Anyway, there were only a couple of standout performances, and considering my favorites on Na Ying’s team from the beginning were Zhang Wei (张玮) [1] and Zhang Yu Xia (張玉霞) [1], I am rather ecstatic and sad. Super elated for the fact that Zhang Wei has a very good chance of being the Top4 (and may very well be the winner), and sad because Zhang Yu Xia — despite her flawless The Legend (传奇) performance in a battle vs. Li Min (李敏) — couldn’t advance any further. T_T

But, DUDE! The Zhang Wei and Ge Yu Sen (歌浴森) battle doing A-Mei’s Three Days and Three Nights (三天三 夜) was great~ Like, couldn’t pick between the two, and I was almost siding with Ge Yu Sen, but would have been perfectly content if either of those two won.

Miss you as if you were far away,
Miss you as if you were in front of me.
Miss you as if you were in my mind,
Miss you as if you were in my heart.

Miss You as if You Were in Front of Me

Damn. Was I just trolled? Did I just say it’s an OMG moment and had my pick of last week just eliminated??? I’m still uncertain, but it seems like Liu Yue was eliminated against her Feeling Good performance.

On episode 8, it was Harlem Yu’s turn. From his team, I had a few favorites — like Wang Yun Yi (王韵壹) [1], Wei Yu Nuo (魏语诺) [1], Jin Chi (金池) [1], and a very VERY soft spot for the Amisi Girls (阿蜜丝女孩) [1] coz their arrangement of Leehom’s Mei [MV] was so much fun xD. So I was BUMMED that I had to choose between Wei Yu Nuo and Jin Chi on the first round of battles.

At first, I thought that Jin Chi was gonna take it really easy because she has such control of her voice, but I was surprised by Wei Yu Nuo who gave her own UMPH while doing a battle performance of Aaron Kwok’s Give your Neverending Love (对你爱不完) [clip]. They were really great together and after rather two weak duos, they seemed to put themselves forward as the best of the episode with their number, until…

This The Same Moonlight (一样的月光) performance by Wang Yun Yi and Zhao Ke (赵可).

and though… none of them made it after the deadly cut… with a rather weak “battle for my own” performance by Wang, they have a close to perfect performance with this. They maybe should collaborate in another project together.

I really REALLY hope Jin Chi makes it to the Top4, at least.

Next up! Na Ying’s team. It seems to be the strongest, but it also means a lot of good people are going to get cut.

So I’m just picking up things whenever people mention Yu-chan on the blogosphere, especially when they are as funny as this variety segment. I mean, it contains this sequence! xD

Cheap GIF, I know. But it can persuade you to watch the Tudou clip, right? Btw, if any of you have trouble watching things from Tudou, it seems that using FLVCD.com and actually downloading the video works faster than their player for some reason.

While the regular edition of l’Officiel has Katy Perry on the cover, l’Officiel China — which is celebrating 32 years of something — has Gong Li on the cover. There’s an accompanying piece (in Chinese) if you’re interested [link].

Also, I found a new photographer! Very excited when I googled his name and ended up looking at some very awesome fashion shoots and celebrity portraits. Sadly his Weibo isn’t so active :( His name is Feng Hai (冯海), in case you need his name in Chinese characters xD

冯海是天才的摄影师啊!

Anyway, Gong Li is always class. She looks stunning, and the styling of the photograph is great as well, but since my Chinese is so poor, I haven’t been able to find the info I want. ~~~
