Not Pretty Enough to Sing in Chinese Games

Posted by Ryan on August 12, 2008

The opening ceremonies of any Olympic games are full of spectacle.  Now, we usually assume that this spectacle does not include lip-syncing the host country’s patriotic songs, but we are dealing with China here!  It’s not that little Yang Peiyi (on the right) isn’t talented, it’s that she’s not as pixie-like as Lin Miaoke according to Chinese officials.  I think that’s a little harsh to tell a seven-year-old girl who has talent.  

My other issue is this: China has 1.3 billion people and they can’t find a cute kid who ALSO sings well?  That’s a totalitarian work ethic, I suppose — just fake it (which is as normal as reading/watching/or getting online news in China).  But, this isn’t good PR for the PRC, thus I’m surprised they even admitted it.

    Send this real singing Chinese girl to America and put her in movies…..I think she is cute in fact much cutier then the one they put in to sing in the Opening Olympics.

    Can you imagine this type of rejection in front of the whole world……….and they focused on HARMONY as there theme for the Beijing Olympics WHAT AN OXYMORMON
