Alumna and UCLA graduate Andrea Wang ’07 made it to the top 10 on ETTV Top Idol 2011, a Chinese spin-off of American Idol. Going into the semi-finals, Wang had the highest score and was chosen as the top performer.
Like American Idol, ETTV Top Idol is an annual competition that launches a countrywide search to discover the “potential pop stars of tomorrow.” This year, ETTV Top Idol auditions were held in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. Wang auditioned at a friend’s suggestion and has had much success in the competition. It is easy to see why from this video of Wang singing Bonnie Raitt’s “Have a Heart.”
The final round of the competition took place in Los Angeles in mid-September but results are not available.
