In a surprising turn of events, Zhang Liyin has been given a second chance on Mad for Music. She was previously eliminated from the music reality show, but she is now reinstated onto the show. The full translation of iFeng‘s article is below.

After two days of voting on Weibo, close to tens of thousands of netizens had participated. From the deadline to the time of the article publication for reporters, Zhang Liyin already led by a far margin with close to 90% of the votes.

Zhang Liyin, Super Junior, Super Junior-M, INFINITE, Tasty, and BTOB appeared at the Best of Best in Taipei concert today. (Yes, she was the only female artist!) Liyin sang a total of two songs, “Moving On” and “Set Me Free”, as well as participated in a short ‘talk’ segment with Super Junior member Kangin.

Many fans at the concert posted their reactions directly from the concert. We have compiled a long list of fancams and social media posts in our article. Check them out below!

We first heard of Zhang Liyin’s appearance on Anhui TV’s Mad for Music around mid-April 2014, when the TV show’s official Weibo account first confirmed Liyin’s guest appearance. Because most of Chocolyn’s articles on this websites were written to document events that occurred years ago, this recap article will summarize Liyin’s appearance on the show only. If you’re looking for a more detailed summary, please watch the episodes instead! We have embedded them throughout this post.

Mad for Music is a reality TV music competition show, similar to The Voice or I Am Singer, but instead of pitting solo singers against each other, they are put into teams where they have to compete as a team to avoid individual elimination.

On April 20, Zhang Liyin joined Super Junior and EXO-M at Best of Best in Nanjing. She sang a total of three songs at the event: “Set Me Free”, “Y (Why…)”, and the duet with EXO member Chen, “Breath”.

Liyin looked absolutely stunning this evening. For once, her stylist didn’t style her in a dress that was black or white. Instead, she was dressed in a lovely grey-ish dress, tied together by a thin black belt. It went well with her hair colour!
