Many surprises were seen during the round 2 challenge as different combinations were formed by the finalists and their partner guest singers who are either past winners or finalists in previous singing competitions.




During this round, I personally really enjoyed Dennis Lee’s performance who has partnered with Johnson Wong, GCM 2013 finalist in performing “再回吧我的心上人”. This combination has brought the classical “Rock” style onto the stage and hyped up the crowd!

Johnnie Lee’s “暴风女神 Lorelai” with guest performer, Kenny Koh (ATQ 2013 Champion) was splendid as well. It was an energetic performance which would make the audience feel like moving along.

He said that he do not plan to take part in other local competition anymore but would be interested to give it a try if he was given a chance to participate in international contest.
