Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

Weibo is exploding with news about a hot contestant with a godly voice. Turning 23 in May, Dimash Kudaibergen is from the Republic of Kazakhstan and one of the 8 contestants of music reality show Singer 2017 (or the former I am A Singer). First episode aired on January 21st and within a night, the rising singer gained over 300,000 weibo followers. He is not new to the music scene as he won first place at The International Festival of Arts “Slavic Bazaar in Vitebsk” in 2015.

He reminds me of a Taiwanese actor (looks-wise)…. What’s his name?! Someone help my brain fart moment. =D

    Hi! I often visit your website to read news about my favorite actors and tv shows. I’m. a silent observer and your follower. This time I couldn’t stop myself from writing something, =)

    WOW! It’s such an honour to see news about sb from my home country receiving warm welcome in China. Especially, since he is originally from my hometown. Dimash is a really uniquely talented guy. I wish him all the best!

    It’s been easier in the recent years to find subbed dramas, but you could rarely see entertainment shows subbed. Sincerely, thank you for posting news about entertainment shows. I enjoy Chinese singing competitions. But then without language knowledge I’m left to simply enjoy the songs, without understanding conversations.

      Welcome out of hiding, Adel9. Lol.

      It’s a good thing, music has no language barriers and we can enjoy them. I listen to songs I don’t understand every day and it’s a joy! 😀

    I think he looks like a male version of Dilraba Dilmurat from the side angle lol.

    He looks like a far more handsome version of Yoga Lin.

    • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

      YES! That’s the name! Thank-you! Weee!

    • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

      Omg he does look like Yoga Lin! Probably the Taiwanese singer Kappy was referring to.

  4. 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

    He is truly talented. Looks like he needs to learn to speak Mandarin soon. He will be popular in China.
    Kappy, you got my recent email?

      His range reminds me of a Castrato I am aware they no longer exist legally but he has amazing range and power in his voice. And he reminds me of them….

    i will never understand why china allows all these turks to participate in their shows and stuff

    • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

      because they’re talented? china is pretty big and it doesn’t hurt to showcase other talents. plus, with the korean ban, they have to go out to more countries. music has no language barriers.

      • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

        yea but if its politics then you really shouldn’t have them on especially turks

        And chinese shows should remain CHINESE

        tired of seeing foreigners

        • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

          Such a racist. What do mean about TURKS im one.. and we don’t ban Chinese people from entering Turkey!

          Learn to be human people like you mentality should educate more.

        • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

          What an idiotic comment… wow!

    • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

      LOL. The Donald.

      Yeah it’s crazy China is more inclusive of minorities than the US isn’t it? *rolls eyes* with that name this user has to be a crazy troll.

      • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

        This guy is not from china he doesnt even speak the language

        He is a foreigner and the enemy

        • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

          Sorry, my comment was meant for The Donald.

    • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

      You do realise that Donald Trump doesn’t like China right? What a strange thing to say especially as you have declared yourself to be a Donald Trump supporter (Hero Donald Trump). If Donald Trump had his way he would completely destory China’s trade monopoly over the rest of the world. The chinese seem to be more tolerant than so many of Trump’s racist supporters. It’s a good job the chinese are so powerful both financially and militarly, otherwise the Trump would try to invade and destroy them too!!!!!!!!!! By the way I am not chinese, I am from Scotland.

    • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

      what you are saying is very racist. Be open minded. If a Chinese singer is to enter a competition in other parts of the world, do you want to see the same reaction like yours.

      • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

        1. most shows dont allow chinese people because they are racists towards them

        2. Chinese singers shouldn’t be in foreign shows

        3. Kazakhs and turks are very racist towards chinese people.

        • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

          Really? I’m Kazakh and I’ve never been racist towards Chinese people, nor did my Kazakh friends. I also read comments on news about Dimash and Kazakhs seem to appreciate support from Chinese fans. So where did you get that statement from?

        • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

          Dude seriosly!
          Im turkish myself born in Netherlands I had Vietnamese, Chinese friend at school. We never did fight and had so much fun together. We never thought we had to be enemies because our race, culture and believes is not the same. Same there is still people like you and i mean even some Turkish people could think the same but I bet they hadnt friend from different culture otherwise you cant say this easly. Its a pity you didnt knew one and that why I dont have any ill feelings toward asian people.

      • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

        look im not chinese or asian but i am just telling you these facts based on stuff i have read

        There have been many racist remarks and assaults on east asian looking people and chinese people by Turks and central asians

        Don’t forget history

        • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

          That moment when some random guys from outside teach the historical relationships to u about u?? not for the first time

    Dimash’s voice has a wide range: he can go low and he can go very high. There’s great potential there but with singing competitions, the future weeks will depend on his song selection and performance. The “I am a Singer” audience is hard to please because as the weeks roll in, they will expect you to deliver something that they had never watched or heard b4 from you….you must constantly be creative, daring and on your toes, especially when you start from the very first week itself! Many singers run out of new ideas to show the audience after a few weeks in the program and their ranking dropped! Dimas comes in strong in the first week itself, showing all the cards in his hands while the other singers, I can tell, they are reserving their best for later! It comes down to strategy to win a singing competition. So, I hope Dimash has more to show us in the coming weeks and continue to impress the audience. If he continues to sing in a similar fashion as this week (going very high), he will not be able to clinch no. 1 spot anymore! He must also watch out for newcomers (the ‘usurpers’) who will definitely come in in Week 3 onwards. These ppl are not there at the beginning and it will be easier for them to amaze the audience since they are “new”. On another note, Sandy Lam managed to bring tears to my eyes. Her voice is so….filled with emotion. You can literally feel the rain falling down on you! Therefore, congrats to them both: Week 1 – Dimash no. 1 and Sandy no.2. Most deserving! 🙂

    I just heard about this great voice, he sang a French song very impressive by the way. I hope he can show more of his talend.

    Since im none Chinese person and cant even speak Chinese, I still love and enjoy watching dramas en listen to great voices like JJ Lin & Bii.
    So it doesn’t hurt to listen to other songs even it’s not Chinese or different language you don’t understand. I wonder how many of us know French but still its a beautiful song.

    Be more open minded explore different culture, since asian dramas become more and more popular now, why wouldn’t you watch and listen other things once in while.

    Thank you for this article, found another great artist!

    I approve of expanding variety of contestants on Chinese singing/talent competition shows. Koreans-aside (they’re popular enough on their own and have a large base to tap into in their home country), a lot of other ethnicities never really get a chance to shine on the international front. Increasing competition even with other cultures can only improve growth.

  9. 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

    He really has an amazing range! I agree though that in order to stay on the show, the singers need to continuously challenge themselves and bring something new. Definitely will be looking to his future performances. While browsing youtube, I saw he sang 天亮了 Tian Liang Le, so perhaps a Chinese song in the future? His Chinese pronunciation is a lot better than his French pronunciation too,

    I was actually looking forward to seeing Hins Cheung on the show, but apparently he won’t be in the show anymore?

    • 35 thoughts on “Overnight Sensation: Dimash Kudaibergen from Singer 2017

      Hins was apparently booted from the show because netizens said that he was associated with/supported the Hong Kong Independence Movement.

      Such a pity, because Hins has a wonderful voice and would have done well on the show imho.

        Aww man, that sucks. Dislike when politics get in the way of entertainment and talents. =/

    Some contestants have an entourage of advisor who lookout for them. Wondered if Dimash has enough of these to help him.
