Chinese songbird Na Ying has been re-appointed as a judge for the second season of popular reality singing competition The Voice of China. At a recent event, the singer criticized Zhang Ziyi, who is currently on the judging panel of The X-Factor – China’s Strongest Voice, for her lack of credibility as a singing mentor.

“I can only say I’ll give her my blessings,” the singer added.

Despite being widely recognized for her acting, Ziyi has suffered a lot of backlash for her comments on the show. While stating that she “does not understand” why the actress was picked for a music program, Na Ying insinuated that Ziyi could only offer opinions on styling as she is “totally incapable” of nurturing singing talents. 

In addition, Na Ying revealed that her good friend Faye Wong will be making an appearance on The Voice of China. However, she declined to disclose if the iconic singer is set to join her on the judging panel.
