Pot Luck[edit]

The songs of Pot Luck in Ep. 8 of Season 1 are selected by the audience online. Each of the singers can choose three from the songs which he or she doesn't want to sing. If one of the three songs is chosen, he can choose another one. There are no pot luck in season 2.

Second Chance[edit]

In Ep. 11 of Season 1, 5 eliminated singers are given one more chance to the semi-final. All the singers must sing for 2 rounds, one is an adaptation, and another one is their own song. The person has highest rank will given the "Second Chance" to the Finale. In Season 2, the resurrection race is replaced by a Breakthrough/Resurrection, meaning the eliminated contestants will compete against the singers they replace to earn a spot back into the semifinals. In season 2, all replacement singers (except for Luo Qi due to her retirement from the contest because of her pregnancy) competed against eliminated singers and each other for a chance to compete in the semifinals. So for example, if there are only 3 people from the first show left to go right into the finals, there will be 4 repechage spots up for grabs.

Return performances[edit]

These are exhibition performances by eliminated contestants to return and perform with no competition complications. An example was when Chyi Chin return in episode 10 of season 1 as a guest judge, but opted to perform a song by Teresa Teng. In season 2, all performers returned to perform at the odd-numbered rounds after elimination.
