With her outstanding talent, she later ranked with the top 20 nationwide.

Musical style[edit]

Liu Xijun has high personal music recognition accuracy in terms of her voice, therefore, people can easily distinguish her voice by listening to her songs. Liu Xijun’s musical style could be categorized as classical pop music, such as Deng Lijun, she owned nearly all the characters which Chinese traditional singers have had.[clarification needed] Even though her songs still have her own features, taking "Love Garden" for instance, this song is standard pop music, depicting a tale of a girl’s first love. Having experienced Super Girl 2009 as her precious fortune, Liu Xijun improved her singing skills greatly when she signed with EEMEDIA after Super Girl, and started her new music career.
