Making the country proud as ever, Malaysian singer Ngu Yi Qi has beaten out 550 contestants to quality as this nation’s representative to compete in the singing reality show “The Voice of China”, after the wildly popular Chinese reality talent show held open auditions for talents from other countries.

The singer beat out other Malaysian hopefuls like Suki Low, Gary Yap, Kopi Lim and Winson Voon to win the role after four rounds of gruelling auditions.

“I’m excited, honoured and appreciative of this opportunity to compete in China. It is the best birthday present for me,” Ngu said, who celebrated her 29th birthday on Wednesday.

Ngu won the attention and hearts of the panel of judges, including music director Zhang Li (from China), Taiwanese music producer Wang Chi Pin, Malaysian vocal coach Toni Lim and local Chinese jazz singer Winnie Ho.

The Voice Of China, Season Three is set to air on 8TV every Saturday starting July 12.
