Super Idol Taiwan 2011
Chen Jie (陳婕) or Reina Chen
We have been watching Super Idol on Channel 62.2 HTTV in Southern California. There is a girl (Chen Jie, or 陳婕) from Shanghai sings very well, we cannot wait to watch her at 8:00pm every Saturday night or at 1:00 p.m. every Sunday. She is borne to sing.
When I was trying to look for songs performed by Chen Jie, I could NOT find anything on Google or YouTube. I had to type in her name in Chinese to find them on Google.
This site will help people in English speaking world find Chen Jie and songs performed by her.
I think you may like her songs also.
Youtube.com is NOT available in China, but people in China can find all 陳婕’s performance on http://www.tudou.com/ by searching with the keyword 陳婕 or超級偶像.
Here are English songs performed by Chen Jie:
20110903超級偶像 陳婕 – If I Ain’t Got You:
If you understand Chinese, you can enjoy the lyric also. If you do NOT understand Chinese, just enjoy the music and the vocal performance.
Here are some links for Chinese songs performed by Chen Jie(陳婕):
20111119 超級偶像 05 陳婕:

20110917超級偶像 陳婕 – 氧氣:
Just watch your latest performance of 氧氣, it is good but not enough to make me excited.
A guy probably wouldn’t mind if his girl friend sings this song to him, but to win the Super Idol competition, this song may not be able to do it. It is good enough to make you go for the next stage, but not good enough for the final.
It is definitely the song choice. The competition is going to get tougher and tougher. You need to go out there every time, pick the song that will make people excited and fit you the most, give 110% of what you have. Treat every performance like the last performance, and sing like there is no tomorrow.
Since you are learning dance right now, I think you may be able to learn something from last year’s winner Miu Zhu’s dancing. Her dance moves are NOT hard, but very subtle and sexy, and express the beauty of female body perfectly.
There are hundreds or even thousands of songs that fit you very well, please, please pick the right song next time. In this competition, you are the only one that can defeat yourself by picking the wrong songs. Every time you step out at the Super Idol stage, millions and millions of people are watching, please cherish and take full advantage of this opportunity and do NOT waste it. Please do NOT pick song like 氧氣: Do NOT get me wrong, it is a good song, and every man probably wants to be the one that you are singing the song to, but it is NOT going to make you win this competition.
《传 奇》by 王菲 may be a good choice if you can sing as detailed as 王菲, your high notes can even be better than 王菲. 《传奇》 is a favorite song to many people to begin with, and it is really 好听.
Here is the link:
“我想有個家” by 潘美辰 is another good choice, see link:
20110910 超級偶像 7.陳婕:習慣失戀:
20110903 超級偶像 4 陳婕 詹英豪:
20110827超級偶像 陳婕 – 愛上你等於愛上寂寞
2011/08/13 超級偶像 陳婕 我是一隻小小鳥
20110716 超級偶像 陳婕 後知後覺
後知後覺 touches my heart, 我是一隻小小鳥 makes me feel that I am soaring high in the sky with you. You need to pick more songs like that.
You know what you are good at, and we know what you are good at. It is like in the boxing ring, you need to give your best punch and knock down your competition. Bring out you full fire power every time, and you can do it.
We know you are trying your best, and we are praying for you, and wish you always have peace and happiness in your heart. If you love the song, and people will feel it when you performance.
Do NOT worry about winning or lose, keep doing what you are doing, do NOT make silly mistakes like forgetting lyric/words of the songs (so many people made this silly mistake), and last but not least, pick the right song.
If you really want to sing English songs in the future, you can try “I have nothing” by Whitney Houston. It may be a little too long for the competition, may be they’ll let you cut and sing part of the song. See link:
It is a very hard song and many people are familiar with it, if you make any mistake, people will immediately know. This is minor risk for you because I think you can sing most songs very well and handle them nicely. On the other hand, if you sing it well: as good as or even better than the original singer, people will LOVE you. This is a major potential up-side for you. This is also a song that matches your voice.
Here is her official fan page on Face Book (2011/08/13 超級偶像 陳婕 粉絲專頁), you can click on the link below, please click on the “Like” button on her Face Book to show your support for 陳婕:
The following are some of my posts at her face book page:
I just watch 後知後覺 by 陳婕 again, here is what I feel: 酣畅淋漓，一曲成名。People will remember you because of後知後覺. I hope this is you starting point, NOT your ending point, and hope you bring more wonderful songs to people with your great voice.
Thanks to Super Idol, a great platform to let millions of people know you.
I am jealous of you guys. I’ll try to go in the final competition; otherwise, I may have to wait until 陳婕’s concert in Los Angeles to see her singing in person.
Watching陳婕 on TV is better than on watching her Youtube, I guess watching her singing in person is much better than on TV. You guys get to watch her in person for FREE, cherish this opportunity.
同樣真實的体驗，被寫成了英文歌曲，那就是James Blunt – You’re Beautiful:
陳婕, 我覺得 “You’re Beautiful” 很适合你唱，可惜歌詞是男生唱給女生的。你得將歌詞改一改。
將來的演出你可以考慮在适當的時候穿一次旗袍，比如你決定要唱新上海灘 (the Mandarin version)時。你的個子夠高(You seems like about1.78 meter tall?), 你穿旗袍會好看，可以顯現東方女性的魅力。
2）求新求变当然好，但是也不是每一首歌都要求新求变， 或是新歌。“後知後覺”并不是一首新歌， 你不是第一个唱“後知後覺”的人（2010[超級偶像]就有歌手唱过），也不会是最后一个。但你可能是把“後知後覺”唱红，让最多人知道并喜欢“後知後覺”的人。关键是“後知後覺” 好听， 并适合你的歌， 能表现你的特长的歌。
3）你要知道你的特色。 人们买周杰伦的唱片，绝对知道他们买的是什么。人们买你的唱片，绝对知道他们买的是什么。你可以求新求变， 有各种风格，但你的特色不能少，否则人们会失望。
我觉得你会把张雨生 的“大海”唱得非常好，甚至比“後知後覺”还好：“大海”不是一首新歌， 丁噹唱过，但丁噹高音唱得吃力，她的声音也有点单薄。张雨生唱“大海”唱得非常好。你也会把张雨生 的“大海”唱得非常好，而且会唱得出新鲜感（女声唱“大海”会与张雨生男女声唱“大海”完全不一样），你可能会是把“大海” 唱得最好的女声， 可能比张雨生唱得更好。下一次唱“大海”吧！充满期待。

Songs that fit陳婕well:
1. 新上海滩 (the Mandarin version):
will fit you very well, see link:
If you need to do男女聲二重唱，Here is a song that fits your voice（無言的結局）:
Here is another English song that fits you (Lionel Richie – Hello):
Even those who posted negative reviews on YouTube know you ARE the best singer in this competition. However, the best singer may NOT win at the end. That is why we are trying to help you to win.
My following comments are for your future sing selection, NOT for this week. It is too late to change songs for this week now. Whatever you have chosen for this week, just go for it and sing your best.
You have been doing very well for the past 2 competition, BUT you are NOT in your best performing state yet：If you are in your in your best performing state, based on you capability, you should be way above the crowd, and the scores should NOT be so close to other singers. Your score should be way higher than them.
To win this competition and also for your future music career, beauty is not enough, singing well is NOT enough, most important thing is you need to be smart. You need to be able know what you customers (In your case, it is the judges and the audience, and the people who will buy your music CD and DVD in the future) want, deliver what they want, meet or EXCEEDING their expectation.
There is a reason why some of the songs are POPULAR and last for many years. They are able to meet the needs and demand of a large percentage of the population. There is also a good reason why some of the songs are obscure and people barely know about them.
We’ll get our friends and relatives to vote for you, but what we can do is limited. YOU are the best person to get more votes for yourself by picking 好听and POPULAR songs.
For the future competition, especially after you get into top 5, you should pick more POPULAR songs by 张惠妹 and 张雨生 because their notes are high, require power to sing well, and you need to be able to handle them accurately. NOT everyone can do that.
As an architect, what I do everyday is to create visual beauty, 求新求变 is good, but sometimes pure 新 will NOT be accepted by people. People need a transition.
What you do everyday is to create visual beauty and 听觉上的美。Maybe a good way to pick songs is to pick some of the好听and POPULAR songs sung by male voice before, and when you re-sing the song in female voice, it creates a new feeling. These kinds of songs are much easier to be accepted by people. Like 張芸京《一場遊戲一場夢》:
Pick the right songs, pick the好听and POPULAR songs, and then nail these songs with your great performance. Make people fall in love with you for your songs. If you can do that, your fans base will be #1 instead of the current #7in this competition. God help those who help themselves. What you do everyday will determine your future and your destiny.
Forget about the songs by the 2nd class singers. There is a reason their songs are not heard of by many people.
Pick the songs by superstars, the top tier singers. Your competitors have been picking better songs than you so far like “Beat it”, 狼,新不了情. That is why they have a much bigger fan base than you. You need to catch up. You can NOT afford to make any more mistakes in song choice.
Pick the songs of superstars, sing like a superstar, dance like a superstar, dress like a super star, walk like a superstar, talk like a superstar, and you know what? You’ll be a superstar before you know it.
The followings songs fit you:
费翔 Kris Phillips – 故乡的云 Hometown Cloud：
It is still the song choice. Can you pick any of the following:
These songs are in your comfort zone, but NOT in other candidates’ comfort zone. You want to choose songs in YOUR comfort zone, and make others compete with you per YOUR terms. It is in the top 6 competition now, I think you need to start to come out way ahead in the game. If you pick these songs, you’ll be 勢如破竹，銳不可擋in this competition.
This song also fits you. It is a good choice for your future music CD or DVD, but maybe not for the competition. Mandarins songs are good for this stage of competition for now:
Josh Groban – You Raise Me Up (Video)
Do you inherit the singing ability from your Dad or Mom? Is one or both of them singers? Do you have any siblings? I hope you do. If you do, you parents may have created a few more golden voices for the world. You parents should be really proud of you.
In your spare time, you may want to take some notes or write a dairy, and summarize it at the end of the competition, and published it as a book, call “Road to Super Idol” or something like that. The publishing Division of my firm can publish fiction and non-fiction books in many languages (Any language supported by windows), and distribute them all over the world. We have a few books that have been ranking as No. 1 best seller in the world for their category. We compete with native English-speaker toe-to-toe and beat them. We can help you publish a book and distribute it all over the world. I think many people will be interested in a book you write. If you do not have time to write, I’ll see if I can arrange for a talented writer to interview you and the co-author a book with you. Whenever you are ready, you can contact us at info@ArchiteG.com so that we can work out the details. This book WILL also help other people to know you more and increase your exposure to the public.
I think the producer of Super Idols will issue a music CD or DVD in Chinese for the final winner or some of the selected top singers. If they are NOT doing any English songs, we can work with you and help you issue music CD and DVD of English songs and publish and distribute them all over the world. I have NOT found any Asian singers make it big in the English-speaking world. I think you have the potential to be the first. You are the Celine Dion or 那英type singer, and I think you have the potential to be as great as she is. She started her music career in the French speaking-world, and then move into the English-speaking world.
You should really know who you are, and focus on being the best that you can be. Can you imagine Celine Dion or 那英type singer in your current competition? I think you ARE a younger version of Celine Dion or 那英.
Do what I suggest in your spare time, and just focus on winning the competition for now.
Attached is a cover design for one of the book that is being published by the Publishing Division of my firm (ArchiteG, Inc. or 啟迪出版社).It is a紀實文學作品。 This book will be available in 2 or 3 weeks worldwide via all Amazon sites, bn.com and any major online stores.
There are at least 2 goals for you in this competition:
1. To win this competition or at least get the best ranking you can.
2. Use the Super Idol platform to advance you career. You can sing and perform like a top singer or a performer, but you also need to start to brand your name陳婕 and build a bigger fans base. 丁譡 has 300k+ fans, and Jay Zhou has 1.6 million fans, you have 2700+ fans. You still have a long way to go.
One way to build a bigger fan base is to sing the theme songs of TV series or soap opera or movie theme songs. I have never even heard of丁譡 until she sing the theme song for 下一站，幸福。
You can start by sing the theme songs of some well-known TV series or soap opera or movies. These will add to your portfolio. Hopefully some of the TV or movie directors or producers will see you performing these songs and realize you are as good as the original singers, or even better than the original singers, and they will get you to sing the theme songs for their next TV series or soap opera or movies.
Every time you go out and perform is an excellent opportunity to showcase your talent, do NOT waste it.
How about singing 新上海滩 (the Mandarin version)? This song only has 2 words in Cantonese and the rest are in Mandarin. It is also a proven excellent song. It has been made and re-made into TV series, and both are extremely popular.
上海姑娘陳婕唱新上海滩 will definitely leave people a lasting impression. Hopefully, people will think of you in the future when they hear 上海 or新上海滩. Do something special so that you are not forgettable. There are millions of pretty girls out there, and there are millions of talented people out there, NOT every pretty girl or every talented people will succeed.
Success is NEVER an accident, and it ALWAYS prefer prepared mind.
只要陳婕選對歌，不忘詞，她一定會贏得這次超偶比賽。不忘詞seems to be simple, but many good singers cannot do that every time, especially when the competition is close to the finals when they are tired and exhausted.
I think your biggest challenge now is to 超越自我。You sing well every time, but I am most impressed by後知後覺, 我是一隻小小鳥, and走鋼索的人。
後知後覺 is your best performance so far, and it is a peak in your performance. Your challenge now is how to make your next and future performance 超越後知後覺。 I know it is not easy, but at least try your best.
It is now very close to the final competition, you should treat it like the final dash of a 100-meter competition. Give 110% percent of what you have, and nail EVERY song every time you go out there.
You can do it. Go get them!
I always love singing and I watch every singing competition that I can. If I had not become an architect, I may have ended up being a singer or a rock star.
However, for me to be this crazy about a singing competition again,
陳婕must be really good. I thank God everyday for her golden voice. It is really a great enjoyment to hear her sings.
No matter what you do in the future, promise all of us that you’ll keep on singing. No matter what happens, do NOT give up.
Being a great singer is your calling and destiny. You are borne to sing.
“怎樣可以讓我的肉臉消腫呢？” You are so cute and lovely when you say that.
No, you do NOT need to make a change, the way you are is perfectly find. Many girls have the wrong concept that the thinner they are, the more beautiful they are. This is NOT true. If a girl is too thin, she will not look healthy and she will be less attractive. Most men actually like girls that are NOT so thin.
We know you love to eat. You think there are a lot of good foods in Taiwan, wait until you get to Los Angeles, you’ll know what good foods are: We have foods from Taiwan, and from each province in China, Dim Sum from Hong Kong, and Italian foods, Korean foods, French foods, American foods, Spanish foods… You name it, and you can find it here. When you come to Los Angles in the future as a judge for Super Idol audition or your own concert, we can take you out to try these foods.
The fans can take you out for a great feast, but you need to do your best to win this competition first. We want you to win, and you should win based on your capacity.
Eat more fruit and vegetable, then you’ll be fine and can eat anything without trouble. I always eat some fruit like an apple either before or after a meal, and I can eat whatever I want without gaining any weight.
Do more exercise and burn all the energy from the food and you’ll never gain any weight. Jogging or walking will burn a lot of energy, swimming or go to the Gym can also keep you fit.
In the final stage, try to keep yourself healthy, and try NOT to catch a cold or flu. Stay away from the crow and stay away from the germs. Protect your voice.
Now that the audience’s votes will count for 50%, this has become a popularity contest too. You REALLY need to sing some POPULAR big songs to make the audiences love you and vote for you.
It is NOW or never!
I am still waiting for you to use your golden voice to bring us to see the Sea.
Learn from 宋妍甄 in picking the songs. She is NOT picking songs that nobody or very few have heard of, she is picking the VERY POPULAR songs that fit her, and focus on singing them well. You can probably do the same.
In this case, 宋妍甄 is VERY brave: she not only chose the song that EVERYONE is familiar with and can even sing along, but sing it in front of the guy who wrote the music for the song (Mr. Huang, the Juror or Teacher). This is what I call the confidence of a good singer. If you are good, you can nail an extremely POPULAR song in front of the toughest Juror or Teacher, and it will help you get many, many votes because it is popular and well-known.
Forget about the obscure songs by 2nd tier singers, pick the big songs that show off your high notes. You ONLY have 3 more weeks of performance. You have absolutely NO chance of doing more experiment, or trial and errors. You need to pick the big songs and nail them.
If you sing too many obscure songs by 2nd tier singers, you WILL be influenced by them, and you WILL become one of them. What a waste that will be. You can NOT afford to do that. Those kinds of songs will get you a few thousands votes, but the POPULAR BIG songs will get you millions of votes.
To me, your ONLY way to win this competition is to pick POPULAR BIG songs with high notes. Otherwise, you face a VERY REAL danger of losing this competition because the other three candidates WILL get more votes and beat you. You have a golden opportunity to win this deal, do NOT waste it.
I have been to Taiwan, the Taiwanese people are very nice and kind. If you perform well, they WILL vote for you. It is up to you to pick the right big songs and nail them. Go for them, and sing them well, you can dominate these competitions. I have no doubt at all.
Picking the right songs should be a no-brainer to you. You should spend less time on scanning through the obscure songs, and spend more time on practicing the POPULAR BIG songs, and make sure you deliver the big songs with your unique voice and performance.
If you are spending a lot of time picking songs, you are NOT on the right track.
Like other said “其實投票對妳是不公平的, 因為其他人都有學校支持.” If you continue to pick the obscure songs that you picked in the last several weeks, you WILL lose the competition because the tiny advantage that you gain from the Judges/Jurors in scoring will be wiped out in no time by the votes the other candidates get. You can NOT afford to pick the obscure songs that you have been picking. You need to nail the performance EACH week.
You HAVE to turn the table and make voting advantage to YOU. How to do that? Very simple, pick AT LEAST one POPULAR BIG song and nail it. Use your song to pick up millions of votes and defeat your competition.
If you can survive the voting next week, then please pick AT LEAST one POPULAR BIG song EACH week and nail it. This is the ONLY way for you to win this. Because of the voting, singing better than the others is NOT good enough, you have to sing FAR better than them to win.
In the mean time, all fans who visit this page please help陳婕 get more votes by spreading the words to ALL your friends and family members. If you have connections in China, try to spread the words there also, that is a huge potential voting block. Tell people in China to watch on 陳婕’s performance on http://www.tudou.com/
Youtube.com is NOT available in China, but people in China can find all 陳婕’s performance on http://www.tudou.com/ by searching with the keyword 陳婕 or超級偶像.
