The backstage dressing room was silent and all the contestants had complicated expressions. After all, before that, no one thought Ye Cang was a competitor. Who would have thought that reality would give them such a big shock?

The contestants behind Ye Cang looked pale and full of despair. Zheng Zhao’s face was not much better. He had always been pretentious, but he was already very upset when he was robbed of most of the light by Li Zihang. Now even a straw bag like Ye Cang could step on his head, how could he put up with it?

Zheng Zhao looked around and quietly left the dressing room while no one noticed.

When Ye Cang got off the stage, he saw Shen Huai waiting at the entrance of the passage. He went over and put the arm on Shen Huai’s shoulder and asked with a smile, “How is my performance? It’s not a disgrace to you, is it?”

Shen Huai was not used to being so close to people. He wanted to take off Ye Cang’s arm but noticed that his forehead and neck were covered with sweat and his lips were a little pale. Only then did he remember that his body had not yet recovered. So Shen Huai silently moved his hand to his shoulder and back, and in Ye Cang’s surprised gaze, he said smoothly, “You can lean on me a little.”

Ye Cang was not so fragile. He just wanted to tease his own agent who is too calm and cool, but he did not expect to be misunderstood. He also did not explain it and honestly and impolitely leaned on Shen Huai.

Ye Cang was thin, but after all, he was a big man. Shen Huai was almost stopped by him. His glasses slid down half an inch. Ye Cang noticed that his agent’s eyelashes were long and thick, and the lights fell on them, looking furry. Like a small brush, gently brushing on Ye Cang’s heart.

However, Shen Huai quickly corrected his glasses, so Ye Cang put away his strange thoughts with a disappointed “tsk” sound.

Shen Huai gave him a somewhat inexplicable look.

They went back to the stage and saw a figure flashing into the stairwell. Ye Cang didn’t care, but Shen Huai recognized them as Zheng Zhao. 

Shen Huai wondered what he was doing in the stairwell during the game.

He supported Ye Cang, without time to think deeply, he could only put it aside for the time being.

– 

Zheng Zhao did not know that he was seen. He went to the stairwell and looked left and right. After making sure there was no one, he took out his mobile phone and dialed a number.

As soon as the other party got through, Zheng Zhao cried hurriedly, “Uncle!”

Zheng Zhao’s uncle is the small leader of Zhongjing TV station, named Wu Jianguo. Zheng Zhao’s participation in “Star of Tomorrow”, was arranged by him. When he edited the previous program, he always intentionally or unintentionally took Zheng Zhao, which was also his intention.

Wu Jianguo lowered his voice: “Live broadcast! What are you doing?”

Zheng Zhao spoke extremely fast: “Uncle, I remember you said that you can control the random song selection process, for a while…”

Wu Jianguo hurriedly covered the microphone and left the crowd before he spoke again: “Didn’t we agree to use that thing in the middle of the game?”

One of the biggest features of the “Star of tomorrow” program is the random selection of songs every other issue. The contestants turn their back to the big screen, stop casually, sing which song they stop at, and whether they can choose the track they are good at depends entirely on luck. Before that, some contestants have been eliminated because they have chosen tracks that they were not good at.

Although fans scold the show group for having a hole in their head, they have to say that such a competition system is more tense, more exciting, and easier to create topics.

Wu Jianguo had already made up his mind about the competition system. He bribed the staff of the control program and secretly changed the procedure, but he intended to deal with Li Zihang. The strength of Li Zihang is not far from that of Zheng Zhao, if Li Zihang is allowed to randomly draw a song that is extremely difficult to control, the balance will tilt to Zheng Zhao. The operation is good, the gods can eliminate people unconsciously, and Li Zihang can only admit his bad luck.

Wu Jianguo had long thought of this strategy, and now he is upset by Zheng Zhao.

Zheng Zhao is very stubborn: “No, use it now, use it for Ye Cang!”

Wu Jianguo was stunned: “Ye Cang?” There was disapproval in his words. “He just did good once. What are you so worried about? Your opponent is still Li Zihang.”

Zheng Zhao shook his head and thought of what Ye Cang said in the bathroom. He gritted his teeth. He did not care about Ye Cang’s strength, but he wanted to make this man never appear on stage again.

Wu Jianguo could not resist Zheng Zhao, so he had to agree to help him. 

Zheng Zhao took his mobile phone and returned backstage, because by the time the intermission commercial was broadcast, most of the contestants had already finished singing. They gathered together to chat in twos and threes. Ye Cang, who was originally unnoticed, was surrounded by the crowd. He was not as embarrassed as before, and looked like a fish in water.

Zheng Zhao looked at him angrily, then closed his eyes and prepared his own repertoire of the game.

Probably because Li Zihang and Ye Cang stage performance were too strong, it raised the expectations of the audience, and then the next few games let them feel a little tepid until Zheng Zhao came on stage.

Finally, only three people were promoted directly, namely, Li Zihang, Ye Cang and Zheng Zhao. Zheng Zhao’s heart felt smug but as soon as he saw Ye Cang, he felt a lump in his throat.

After the PK competition, although there are many points to watch, but people who eat a big meal can not see this porridge dish. In addition to the fans of the players, they are really cheering for their own idol. The netizen’s minds have already drifted to the next game.

Next is the stage of cooperation. Players will choose their teammates according to the order of promotion, and they will compete in groups. All the winners will be promoted, and the losers will be eliminated by PK. They still need to pay attention to some strategies, although the choice of having strong teammates is more likely to let them win, but once lost, the probability of being eliminated is greater, not to mention the random selection is full of variables. Netizens have been unable to resist using the bullet screen and began to come up with advice.

Shen Huai asked Ye Cang, “Have you decided who you want to choose?”

Ye Cang shrugged. “I don’t know. Let’s look at the situation then. Maybe someone has the wisdom to see the hero and selects me. It’s not my turn to worry about this kind of thing at all!”

Shen Huai was speechless.

On the other side, Li Zihang just heard this sentence, and lowered his eyes, thinking thoughtfully.

– 

By the end of the two PK games, the list of the top eight players will be officially determined.

After interviewing all the top eight contestants, the host asked Li Zihang, the first one who was promoted, “Zihang, the next stage is the cooperation stage. You have to choose one of the remaining seven contestants to be your partner. He is both your teammate and your opponent, do you have a candidate in mind?”

Li Zihang nodded.

Host: “Wow! Then let’s see who Zihang will choose as his partner.”

Li Zihang looked to the left, and then raised Ye Cang’s hand.

Ye Cang: “? ? ?”

Li Zihang said lightly: “I choose Ye Cang.”

The audience was shocked. After all, Li Zihang and Ye Cang had never worked together before, and their styles were different from each other. It was impossible to imagine what their cooperation would be like.

The host regained his mind and extended the microphone to Ye Cang: “Ye Cang, would you like to be a partner with Zihang?”

Ye Cang was just talking nonsense. He didn’t expect to be chosen by him, but he didn’t care. He said to Lizi Channel in a very stinky and shameless way: “Brother, you have a good eye!”

Li Zihang: “…” What if I suddenly regret it?

Zheng Zhao, standing next to him, almost could not restrain his ecstasy. Although he wanted to eliminate Ye Cang with the function of random song selection, after all, it was not enough insurance, but now that Li Zihang chose Ye Cang as his teammate, the competition for Ye Cang will certainly be eliminated. As for the possibility of the two men defending themselves in the cooperation stage, he never thought about it.

Zheng Zhao chose a contestant who was also very good, and according to the rules, they automatically became opponents.

Host interview Zheng Zhao: “Zihang and Ye Cang are such a strong combination to become opponents, do you have the confidence to beat them?”

Zheng Zhao had a hidden knife: “I am very confident, I am here in order to win, the selection of teammates is also a strong assurance. I will not choose players who are not strong but have a high degree of traffic. That is disrespectful to the audience and opponents.”

Zheng Zhao’s remark made a mockery of Ye Cang and Li Zihang at the same time.

For the first time, it was said that Ye Cang was not strong, and he felt some novelty. He could not help but look at Zheng Zhao more often. There was no fragment of a feud between the two in the memory of the original owner, and there could only be hatred that he had pulled.

He laments that good people are hated everywhere.

Fortunately, Zheng Zhao does not know what he is thinking, otherwise, he will probably die of anger.

The host was trying to make a spectacle. He didn’t expect Zheng Zhao to be so excited. He immediately got excited and gave the microphone to the mouth of Ye Cang: “Ye Cang, hearing your opponent’s declaration of challenge, what do you want to say?”

Ye Cang smiled lightly: “Oh, I just hope our opponents will cheer up and prepare for the next PK competition.”

The host almost thought he had heard it wrong: “PK…. Competition?”

“Because I’m going to win the next game,” Ye Cang said carelessly.

His words were like lighting a fire. There was an uproar at the scene. Zheng Zhao is crazy enough, they didn’t expect Ye Cang to be even crazier than him. The next game looks good!

Zheng Zhao, with a smile on his face and MMP in his heart, gritted his teeth and thought to himself that he would make Ye Cang look good in a moment.

When the group was divided, it was the most exciting time, which was drawing lots.

Li Zihang hesitated for a moment and gave the chance to draw lots to Ye Cang. The screen rolled up and Ye Cang stopped at random. Then he heard a cry of surprise from below, and the expressions of Li Zihang beside him were endless.

“I have a good eye brother, but you are not very lucky.”

Ye Cang turned his head and saw the very familiar song on the screen.

“Summer Bug”, song by: Lu Yang; singer: Lu Yang.

Ye Cang: “…”

This is Lu Yang’s famous song, which is a must-mention song when it comes to rock and roll. This song has a wide range of popularity and a high degree of difficulty to match its fame. Because the original song is too classical, so far no one has surpassed it. Singing this song during the competition is just death, let alone one of the judges under the stage is Lu Yang’s die-hard fan. “Summer Bug” is a white moonlight that can not be tarnished in the eyes of the other party.

Xia Fei’s brow slowly began to wrinkled.

Zheng Zhao looked, the pride of the heart is about to overflow, A bitter anger came out, and the whole person could feel the comfort. He couldn’t wait to see it next week. He almost personally saw these two people scolded by Xia Fei half to death and trampled under his feet.

The host asked Ye Cang with a little sympathy: “How do you feel now when you get such a difficult song?”

Ye Cang told the truth: “…Very good.”

His relaxed expression contrasted sharply with Li Zihang’s grave expression behind him.

Zheng Zhao did not believe it. In his heart, he madly spit: What force! Ignorant bumpkin, I’m afraid I don’t even know how difficult this song is!

The host didn’t believe it either. He smiled and asked, “Looks like you’re familiar with this song?”

Ye Cang nodded and answered seriously, “It’s quite familiar.”

The backstage dressing room was silent and all the contestants had complicated expressions. After all, before that, no one thought Ye Cang was a competitor. Who would have thought that reality would give them such a big shock?

The contestants behind Ye Cang looked pale and full of despair. Zheng Zhao’s face was not much better.
