CRIENGLISH.com Web Editor: Bao Congying
The Beijing Television Spring Festival Global Gala is a much-anticipated event to be held on the 2nd day of the Spring Festival period, February 15th, 2010. With a huge lineup of local and international stars performing amazing shows of dance, song, comedy, magic and much more, the event is a surefire hit. We got to take a sneak peak inside the show and brought you some highlights.
The gala will be hosted by Chinese-American entertainer David Wu and American magician David Williamson, just to name a few. Following the spectacular and diverse opening performance, renowned Russian singer Vitas took the stage with a mind blowing show, followed by an equally if not more impressive duet with Chinese singer Tang Can.
American Raines family took the stage to do their own rendition of the infamous Sound of Music song Ħ°Do-Re-MiĦħ. We caught up with the real life Brady bunch family backstage.
The featured Russian dance group was hand picked out of many who auditioned and no surprise that the directors ended up with the National Russian Ballet, who flew in just days earlier to start rehearsals and recordings.
We caught Broadway tap dancer Jeremy Benton just as he finished his number. With an expansive resume starring in 42nd Street on Broadway, The Producers Movie film and now A Race for Love in the Huairou theatre right here in Beijing, Jeremy was more than charming.
Just a few highlights has everyone eagerly awaiting more. Make sure you tune in for this fantastical show.
