Hua previously performed the song in 2016 on The Next, a Chinese music variety show where contestants get to challenge judges who are famous musicians in a sing-off. Hua was a judge on the show.
In tonight’s episode of Singer 2018, Hua decided to change his song at the last minute after learning of lyricist Shang Mengdi (尚梦迪)’s death at the tender age of 22. Hua reprised his classic rendition of Shang’s “Inflammable And Explosive (易燃易爆炸)” in honor of the deceased lyricist. You can watch tonight’s performance here.
