Chinese channel HunanTV’s show “Let’s Sing Kids 3” faces controversy after their announcement of guests for the show.
The show Let’s Sing Kids 3 gives the children who are under age 14 the opportunity to show their singing skills and be able to work with celebrities to improve their skills.
The viewers of the show where confused as the show has recently announced that Tao would be appearing on the show as a music teacher. However, the show has previously announced that EXO’s Lay would be joining.
On June 26, HunanTV announced their official Weibo account that Lay would be appearing on the show.
On July 10, Let’s Sing Kids 3 then announced that a celebrity with the last name “Zhang” would be joining the panel of music teachers on the show. They also released a poster of the confirmed teachers and one mystery teacher tagged as “Zhang XX”.
Viewers and media outlets then speculated and assumed that the celebrity is EXO’s Lay whose Chinese name is Zhang Yixing.
However, on July 11, HunanTV wrote on their Weibo account, “Huang Zitao is confirmed to be joining Let’s Sing Kids 3 as the 4th music teacher. Where are the fans at?”
It is still unclear if Tao has replaced Lay on the show as a music teacher or if Lay or another celebrity with the last name Zhang would be added into the show later on.
Meanwhile, Tao would be filming for the show next week.
