What an evening....two and a half hours of wonderful singing to wonderful music.
Bob and I were absolutely over the moon when it was announced the outstanding Chinese Bass/Baritone Shen Yang won. He is only 23!!
I wonder what Bryn would think of him...I would love to know.
Does he listen do you think Marilyn?

Agreed, Vera. He is amazing. I had him as my winner from the heats in the week. He doesn't have the sublety or expression that Bryn has, but he is only 23 so plenty of time for him to grow and develop that side of things, but the voice is phenomenal.

Not that our loyalties will ever change, of course!

"Our loyalties change"....am with you Irene...Never!

Its a long time since I heard a singer that came anywhere near Bryn and what amuses me is that same night, the terrible Simon Cowell was patronising Paul Potts and that little girl........crusifying Music I call it Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Oh dear am I really that snobbish!! Laughing

I thought Shen Yang was a most worthy winner of the Cardiff Singer of the World. Ok, so I am partial to the Bass-Baritone voice but this young man is truely exceptional. His singing of the Rachmaninov was stunning. I echo Antonio Pappanos comment that 'here is a voice in a million'. Good to see another young singer bursting into his professional career with similar eulogies to thaose that accompanied Bryns arrival on the scene some years back.
Shen seemed like a lovely guy too from the short interviews with him, and his English was fantastic!
