There’s nothing better than the treasured voice.

The Feel-Good Part

For the two seasons that this show has been on the air, the judges have still maintained their likeability and charm. This helps the audience relate to them more and keeps them watching every episode. The judges feel less like judges and more like mentors that want to see their contestants thrive and be better musicians. The show also has a great premise of expressing a love for music rather than using music as a tool for them to get further in a competition. This allows contestants to truly do what they are passionate about and express their musical stylings in the best ways possible, unlike other competition shows that require contestants to fit into a different mold each week. Perhaps, the best part of this competition as a whole is the sheer talent and performances in each episode. Each episode is filled to the brim with amazing performances that are just amazing to watch and leaves its audience in awe.

The Disappointing Factor

The format of the show is quite unclear. Like most Asian singing competitions, the premise shifts from show to show and there isn’t a fixed outlook on how the competition will play out. It does get confusing for first-time viewers to understand what kind of show it is. Is it a competition? Is it a variety show? Or is it a pseudo-concert? Aside from the format, the only other problem with the show is the episode runtime which is an hour and forty minutes which is as good as a feature-length film. There are a lot of contestants to look at so that length seems justified but you do lose focus after a while when you watch this show.

In-Depth Analysis

This show does give a great look at music and since the focus is mainly on love for the music we get some great performances and a show unlike any other. It is a great example of how when you center a show around passion rather than winning a prize, you can truly see the contestants shine in what they do best.
