It looks as though our dreams of purchasing Lin Yu Chun‘s inevitable Christmas album for every member of our family has been cut short—the 24-year old reality show contestant was eliminated from Taiwanese Idol Super Star Avenue. What, does Internet super-stardom not count for anything these days?!
Lin—whose nickname is the oxymoron “Little Fatty”—followed up his performance of Whitney Houston’s classic love song “I Will Always Love You” with a Mandarin song, and was blasted by the judges.
“You rarely hit a wrong note. But you did today, what’s wrong with you?” said one of the judges (rather harshly, we might add) after his last performance. Ouch.
Lin Yu Chun should keep his chin up—the ousted contestant will be invited back to the show as a guest performer next week. And anyway, Susan Boyle didn’t win her TV reality show, either. And neither did Adam Lambert, and he’s become so successful in the last year, he’ll be mentoring all the Idols this week! Basically, losing is the new winning.
