I really really enjoyed many of the performances in this year’s Spring Gala, which included a dance rendition of a Mo Li Hua (èŒ‰èŽ‰èŠ±) instrumental, the suspended dude on a mast on top of a digital display of the ocean (ç›´æŒ‚äº‘å¸†), and the Drum Dance in Prosperity Xi’an Terracotta Army, The Silk Road (ä¸ç»¸ä¹‹è·¯), The Beauty of ChinaÂ (å±±æ°´ä¸å›½ç¾Ž). Also, my biases Zhao Wei and Sa Dingding (doing the Good Luck Song (å‰ç¥¥å‰ç¥¥)) were there!Â Donnie Yen showed up too! Dude! I even enjoyed the super Red Song, My HomelandÂ (æˆ‘çš„ç¥–å›½), which was performed by Wang Li (çŽ‹èŽ‰), Wang Qing Shuang (çŽ‹åº†çˆ½), You Hong Fei (å°¤æ³“å©“), Jin Ting Ting (é‡‘å©·å©·)Â and a special appearance by opera soprano Guo Lanying (éƒå…°è‹±).
I also enjoyed the Inner Mongolia  and minorities medleyÂ In the Great Embrace of your Hometown (åœ¨ä½ ä¼Ÿå¤§çš„æ€€æŠ±é‡Œ)Â numbers xD In turn into a bit of a Red Song somewhere there by the end, but it wasn’t even the Reddest song of the night. LOL But I enjoyed it.
Tan Wei Wei’s (è°ç»´ç»´) number, though, featuring Zhang Ximin (å¼ å–œæ°‘)Â and Huayin Lao Qiang performers (â€œåŽé˜´è€è…”â€æ¼”å‘˜) floored me. So much damn fun and energy. I loved it. The song was presented under the titledÂ “the Huayin old tune in high toneÂ shout” (åŽé˜´è€è…”ä¸€å£°å–Š, huayin lao qiang yi sheng han). It also teaches us all about Huayin Lao Qiang (Huayin Old Style “Chinese Rock’n’Roll)!
