Season 7

Singer 2018 is the sixth season of Chinese television series Singer, a rebranded version of I Am a Singer that aired on Hunan Television. It is produced by Hong Tao, and its music director is Hong Kong senior musician Kubert Leung. The first episode was recorded in the Hunan Broadcasting System Radio and Television Center, Changsha, Hunan on December 28, 2017 and premiered on January 12, 2018 and ended on April 20, 2018. For the first time this series, YouTube provided English captions for the show.

On April 13, 2018, British singer Jessie J was declared winner of Singer 2018, and J was the first non-Chinese and foreign singer to win I Am a Singer. Chinese singers Hua Chenyu and Wang Feng were placed second and third, respectively.

Competition rules[edit]

As like the previous seasons of I Am a Singer and Singer 2017, Singer 2018 was divided into four rounds of three stages, and seven singers performed for a 500-member audience each week. Similar to the previous series, the total votes cast from both Qualifiers and Knockouts determined which singer was eliminated from the competition.

This series features a modification to the Challenge rounds, with the Challenger entering the competition starting at the Knockout rounds instead of Challenge round (where a new substitute singer would enter the competition instead). Challengers must avoid last place on their first week in addition to finishing in the top four on the second week (in a combination of both knockout and challenge rounds) to be declared safe; failing either challenge instantly eliminates the singer from the competition.

A new pre-voting introduced in the season, Pre-Audience Voting, replaces the Singer Voting which debuted in season 3. Midway after the fourth performance, the audience were asked to make early predictions on which three singers would receive the most votes after the remaining performances of that episode. Similar to Singer Voting, Pre-audience voting has no impact onto the outcome of the competition (with one exception, see below) and does not count towards the audience's vote count.

The announcement of results was also changed, with only the results for the top four revealed during the Qualifiers, while the remaining results (bottom three) would not be revealed until the Knockouts; in most cases, they could choose their performance order by ballot for the next night.

The first challenger of the season was Juno Su.

His appearance was neither mentioned nor shown in the later episodes, thus effectively confirming his withdrawal from the competition.

Tandingan and Hua were initially going to perform 1st and 3rd, respectively, but both orders were swapped on mutual agreement after Tandingan not wished to perform first after doing so on last week and Hua volunteered in taking her place.

Three of the six singers who were initial singers (Chang, Jessie J and Wang) were exempt for this round, while the other three singers would participate along with previously eliminated singers (except for GAI) for a chance to enter the finals. The performance order were determined through the contestant's status quo and their duration on the stage, with the three remaining non-initial singers (Hua, Huo, and Tengger), as well as James Li (by-virtue on performing the longest (seven shows) among other singers) chose the performance order, while remaining singers drew their lots to decide the order; the order for the first four performers with a white-colored envelope are told not to open it until the start of the episode- Tien and Yu drew the gold-colored envelopes and were given their orders as fifth and sixth, respectively.

For the first time in the show's history, interim eliminations occur during the Pre-Audience Voting: midway through the fourth and seventh performance, the 500-members cast one vote to save a singer- the singer receiving the fewest votes after each round of the Pre-Audience Voting will be eliminated immediately (breakout failure).

The singers sang one song, and the four singers (of the remaining eight) having the most votes qualified for the finals. Hua, James Li, Tengger & Huo were the top four singers who received the highest number of votes and advanced to the finals.

Finals[edit]

  • Airdate: April 13, 2018

The finals were divided into two rounds, with the first song being a duet with a guest singer, and the second song being a solo encore performance. Similar to the previous season, votes cast were the sole determinant of the season's winner.

Round 1[edit]

The first round of the finals was a guest singer's duet. The grouping was decided by the singers starting with the most wins prior to the Breakouts (if there is a tie in terms of wins, a prior online vote serves as a tiebreak); each group can consist of either two or three members, meaning that two groups will be head-to-head and one being a three-way. After the groups are decided, one member drew lots to decide the order of performance for this round. The result of the grouping are reflected in the table below.

The singer with the highest number of votes on each group directly advanced to Round 2, leaving four singers eligible for the save through a re-vote; the singer receiving the highest number of votes cast will be saved and also advance to the second round.

Round 2[edit]

The second round of the finals is an encore song, and the singer receiving the highest number of votes (this vote was separate from the Round 1 vote) was crowned as the winner. The order for this round was determined by ballot, except for Tengger who would perform first for being the last to advance to Round 2.
