Chinese talent show captivates Taiwanese viewers
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — A Chinese talent show that has captivated Taiwanese viewers is raising concerns about China's cultural influence on the island.
Many Taiwanese TV stations aired part or all of the final episode of "I Am A Singer."
China's Yu Quan duo won the competition, and Taiwan's Terry Lin and Aska Yang were runners-up in the Hunan Satellite TV station episode Friday night.
Taiwan-produced songs and music programs once dominated the Mandarin song markets. But over the past decade, many of its top singers have left the island for the fast-growing Chinese market.
Taiwan's Culture Minister Lung Ying-tai say the island's edge in the pop-song market may be fading quickly.
