American Idol premiered in the United States in 2005, and China has had a metric ton of song-related reality television shows since then. So what exactly is it that has turned The Voice of China into a nationwide craze? Since its premiere in July on Zhejiang Television, the show has become probably the most talked-about television series in the entire mainland, with a band of fanatical followers including some of us here at Popup Towers.

I really enjoyed this podcast! I love watching 中国好声音 as well. Of course the chinese in these podcasts is amazing, but the only slight annoyance I have is Echo's "mmm's" and "en's" every 3 seconds while others are talking. I understand it is part of the language - I do it every once in a while when I am abroad as well. However, the high frequency of them is very distracting.

Otherwise, awesome!

I must admit that I am completely hooked on this show. Love season 2 with 张惠妹 and 汪峰.

我也很喜欢那英。我2001年在北京嘉里中心见过她, 我一直很喜欢她的歌曲。 我认为在节目当中最有意思的是看四位导师强最优秀的歌手。 比如姚贝娜。
