Do you think it is ok to invite Western singers to sing in the 2008 olympic opening ceremony or
should we give our Chinese singers a chance to sing in any big events that are held in China?

I am just so disappointed that everytime we host big events in China such as Beijing Olympic, Asian Games...
theres always western faces appear on the main stage. It is wrong. We should give our local singers chance to sing
and get more recognise in the outside world.

I was very upset to see Sarah Brightman to sing the Olympic theme in the opening ceremony in 2008.
she is British, why invited her to sing in the opening ceremony?? Has any western worlds ever had Chinese face to sing
in their opening ceremony or any other big events held in their countries?? Never!!!
so why not use our local talents? why promoting western singers more??? the event director did a very bad job!!!

in the recent asian game held in gz, 70% of the performers on stage were foreigners.
that was very stupid idea. we host the game, we should use local performers to perform. its a big opportunity for our local singers to get recognised in foreign countries.

whenever foreign countries host a big event, would they allow Chinese face to to perform on main stage???
Never!!!! so why should we allow them? dont we have rock stars in our local cities to perform??? hmmmmmm......

Chine did have a singer, but she was lip synching.

YES for an event like the Olympic games which is beamed around the world.

As far as i know they dont yet sing in Mandarin very much anywhere outside China but ya know, English is spread all over the world.

Maybe we could have a few Chinese singers at our games this year..

It might work out cheaper and we're broke
