Dragon TV’s Official Response to Rumours: S.H.E Was Not Late for [Mi Gu] Studio Recording
Recently, several print and online media published news stating that Mandarin-pop idol heavenly group, S.H.E, kept crew members, fellow guest stars, audience and fans waiting for eight hours during a studio recording for a singing contest programme. To authenticate this information, our reporter contacted the personnel-in-charge of Dragon TV’s [Mi Gu Celebrity College] via the phone. In the end, we learnt the truth, which was totally the opposite of what was published by the various media.
According to the personnel, the scheduled arrival time in Beijing airport for S.H.E’s flight that evening was around 7pm. Hence the production team specially prepared the human-sized S.H.E stands to stand-in for the trio during the recording of the programme’s opening. According to the filming schedule of [Mi Gu Celebrity College] for this 8th installment, S.H.E was the invited guest stars to “help” the blue team led by Eric Moo. They will help the blue team members to score higher points during the “Celebrities Help to Sing” segment. During the afternoon, other invited guest stars such as Yu Quan, Sa Dingding, Huang Ling, Huang Zheng, Li Hui Zhen etc, arrived punctually and filming for their parts commenced as scheduled.
About 8pm in the evening, S.H.E was inside the recording studio to prepare for filming. By past 9pm, filming commenced as scheduled. When S.H.E came onstage, fans exclaimed and cheered aloud, filling the studio with endless applause and never before enthusiasm. From the moment S.H.E touched down in Beijing airport to the time they finished the studio recording, the trio was not able to even have a proper meal. During the night, S.H.E and their junior from the same record company – Judy Chou, who is currently in the top ten of [Mi Gu Celebrity College], made a debut performance on their first duet – [Liang Ge Ren De Huang Dao] (lit transl: The Couple’s Deserted Island). This song will also premiere on China’s wireless mobile music website. In the end, S.H.E and Judy Chou’s spectacular performance received the highest score for the evening.
