Chronology

Singer 2017 was the fifth season of Chinese television series of the rebranded version of I Am a Singer. The title name was renamed to Singer due to the banning of Korean-related branding and artists in China. As seen on Season 1, no competing singers also double as MCs, with hosting duties shared by the singers' music partners, who had prior hosting experience. If not, they were partnered by someone who does. The singers' introductions were made by their music partners. The finals were hosted by He Jiong after a year's absence.

The series premiered on January 21, 2017, on Hunan Television, and ended on April 22, 2017. Hong Kong singer Sandy Lam was named the winner of the season, Kazakhstan's Dimash Kudaibergen and Taiwanese band Lion were named runner-up and third place, respectively.

Competition rules[edit]

As with previous seasons of I Am a Singer, Singer 2017 is divided into five rounds of two stages. The first eight singers participated in the first stage of each round, with the lowest ranked singer facing elimination. In each episode, an audience panel of 500-members cast their vote for the top three singers they felt performed best during the round. The second round was the elimination round, where the singer receiving the lowest combined total number of votes from the two rounds was eliminated. The third episode featured a Challenge round which featured a challenger joining in the panel of remaining singers. The Challenger had to finish in the top four position (i.e. 4th place or higher) in order to be safe; a challenge failure resulted in the challenger's elimination. For the first time in the show's history, a returning singer from previous seasons of I Am a Singer also joined the panel without having to compete a challenge.

This is currently the only season to have returning singers, as well as an increased number of finalist (ten). This is the last season to feature Singer voting which was introduced in Season 3.

Details of competitions[edit]

1st round[edit]

Qualifying[edit]

  • Taping Date: January 10, 2017
  • Airdate: January 21, 2017

The order of performance of this episode was determined through audience voting for their anticipated songs, though the singers were also allowed to discuss and rearrange their performance order. As there were eight first-round singers, this round featured elimination, with the singer receiving the lowest number of votes was immediately eliminated; Tia Ray would have been eliminated for finishing last; however, Ray was later declared safe following Hins Cheung's disqualification. Cheung was later revealed to have participated in the political Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong after the episode was taped. [2]

Breakout[edit]

  • Taping Date: March 23, 2017
  • Airdate: April 1, 2017

Three of the six singers who were first-round singers (Sandy Lam, Lion and Dimash Kudaibergen) were exempted for this round, while the other three singers participated with eliminated singers (except for Hins Cheung, Tan Jing and Zhao Lei; Zhao Lei was unable to take part in order to focus on the concert on March 23[3]) for a chance to enter the semi-finals. The order was determined through ballot, with the exception of surviving non-first-round singers (Li Jian, Terry Lin and Jason Zhang) who could choose their performance order for the night without ballot.

For the first time, the number of finalists was increased from seven to ten, thus seven Breakout spots were offered. Teresa Carpio, Li Jian, Terry Lin, Julia Peng, Tia Ray, Diamond Zhang and Jason Zhang were the top seven singers receiving the highest number of votes and advanced to the semifinals.
