Watch The “Chinese Adele” Sing “Someone Like You”

August 16th, 2012 | 4 comments | Posted by Jen

I don’t what it is about Adele’s voice, but it bugs. I can’t stand it. It’s so overwrought and what’s the word? Singerly. I know, I know, that’s not even a word. I just don’t want to hear it. Shut up shut up shut up, Adele. Fast forward to the next song before hives break out on my leg.

That said, it’s kind of crazy to hear a simulacrum of Adele’s voice come out of 19 year-old Zheng Hong, a contestant on the Chinese version of “The Voice.”

Things I love about this video?

  1. That big, confident voice coming out of a seemingly quiet, unassuming girl.
  2. The crying judge.
  3. The crying judge.
  4. Alas, again, the crying judge.

I Will Always Love Yu Chun

By now, you’ve probably seen the vid of Lin Yu Chun rocking Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” on the Taiwanese singing competition Super Star Avenue. Because, it’s, like, EVERYWHERE. Oh: and it is AMAZING.

He’s being heralded as the next Susan Boyle, and I’m assuming that has less to do with the fact that he was also discovered in a televised singing competition and more to do with the fact that he, too, looks like he’s been locked up in an attic his whole life and dressed and coiffed by some sadistic motherfucker with a twisted sense of humor.

But, man, can that crazy-lookin’ dude sing.
