Episode 9 of 《隐藏的歌手》"The Hidden Singer" was telecast on MediaCorp Channel U last night. This is a variety show where a real singer and 5 impersonators would sing behind 6 closed doors for the audience to guess where the real singer is.
I don't usually watch this show. However, I watched episode 9 《隐藏的歌手》"The Hidden Singer" as Leon Lai (黎明) was the real singer in this episode. It was quite funny how this episode started with the TV host 黄子佼 coming up to the stage singing one of Leon Lai's songs, 《甜蜜蜜》。Most people of my generation or earlier would probably know that this song was originally sung by Teresa Teng (邓丽君)。《甜蜜蜜》was also the theme song of a Chinese movie of the same name. When I first heard Leon Lai's version of the song 《甜蜜蜜》, I thought it sounded a bit weird (probably too used to Teresa Teng's version). However, as I listened a few more times, I found that Leon's version was just as nice. It had a flavour of its own (别有一番风味).
In this episode, Leon Lai and his impersonators sang a few Cantonese songs. However, one of the Cantonese songs sung by Leon, which was one of my favourites, was not performed on last night's show. It was 《如果这是情》。It was one of the songs in the Hong Kong TV drama 《人在边缘》"The challenge of Life".
There is also a Chinese version of this song named 《今生相爱 来生再相聚》。However, I could not find it on Youtube.
