Olympics Deception

I’m quite flabbergasted with this news about the fake performance of a child balladeer during the opening day of the Olympics in Beijing, China.

According to the news when Lin Miaoke, (in the right), opened her mouth to sing “Ode to the Motherland” during the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, the voice that was actually heard was a recording of seven-year-old Yang Peiyi(left).

Miaoke performed before an estimated one billion viewers woldwide, but unfortunately, the voice they were listening to is not hers. It is the voice of the seven-year old Peiyi.

Peiyi was intentionally not chosen to perform because she’s not that good looking compared to Miaoke. Chen Qigang, the general music designer of the opening ceremonies said that the child on camera should be flawless in image, internal feeling and expression.

These Chinese people are really into fakes. No wonder most pirated and imitation stuffs like dvds, jeans, etc. mostly came from China. I guess their effort to impress the world made them look stupid. Oh, well that’s just my opinion.

    asians are very pompous when it comes to celebrations, probably because we want to please guests and outsiders so much.
