G.E.M participated in Hunan SDTV's singing contest I Am a Singer 2
and have won two rounds in a row already. This HK "young giant lung" has become a big hit in Mainland. Today is not like yesterday, GEM's offer price is getting higher and higher. GEM's manager expressed she's paid 25 times more. Its been four weeks since I Am a Singer 2
premiered and GEM was already first place on the second and third weeks. GEM's manager disclosed her value went from 30-40K RMB to 400K RMB and 600K RMB by the fourth week. Because GEM's in the singing contest, she has already turned down 30 functions.
GEM expressed she did not like the I Am a Singer 2
elimination system. She said: "The ranking is already really cruel. The elimination feels a lot more getting negated. Actually the audience votes for which performance they liked, not who they wanted to eliminate."
It was understood GEM fell to second place in the fifth week, but on the sixth week she performed Cantonese song Love You
and won first place again. She expressed her feelings on Weibo: "Forgive the failures that are already the past, but do not get indulged in success and glory that are also already the past."
