News : The Voice of China 2
Jiangsu TV's reality singing competition The Voice of China 2, which features veteran singers Na Ying, A-Mei, Harlem Yu and Wang Feng as mentors on the show, premiered last Friday. In the first episode, Na Ying poked fun at A-Mei's weight issues while 'consoling' a female contestant. The contestant named Liu Ya Ting shared that she recently put on 20 kg and though her vocals are powerful, she is bothered by her size. 'Because it's not pretty to be fat,' she sighed. In return, Na Ying tried to make Ya Ting feel better at the expense of her good friend and said, 'Don't you think A-Mei is beautiful?' To add on, Harlem spoke up for the Taiwanese diva and jokingly retorted, 'Na Ying, do you still call yourself a friend?' Despite the cheeky banter between her friends, A-Mei appeared unaffected and even struck a few poses for the camera, showing off her confidence. 'You are beautiful as long as you can sing well,' she said. While A-Mei was persuading Ya Ting to join her team, Na Ying again playfully commented that the two of them could 'analyse how they gained weight'. This time, however, A-Mei retaliated and said, 'Na Jie (sister), stop hinting that I am fat!'
