This year’s Chinese New Year’s Eve or Spring Festival falls on the 27th of January. Each year since 1983, China’s national broadcaster, CCTV, has hosted the Spring Festival Gala broadcast on New Year’s Eve, and Wang Kai has been asked to participate in the program this year. This is quite a prestigious honour and really great for his career as well.
He will be singing together with Hu Ge. The song is rumoured to be This Moment, but we won’t know for sure until the Gala. The ladies of Ode to Joy will also be performing at the beginning of the program. It will be great to see at least two of the Ming Brothers reunite, but sadly Jin Dong will not be performing with Hu Ge and Wang Kai.
The 2017 CCTV Spring Festival Gala will start broadcasting at 20:00 Beijing time (8PM) and Wang Kai and Hu Ge will perform fourth. You can see the full program below (it’s all in Chinese though, but just in case you can read some Chinese or want to practice). If the image is too small, you can try this larger image here.
To watch the Spring Festival Gala live, you can stream it on CCTV’s Spring Festival Gala YouTube Channel or on their Facebook page. CGTN is also possibly streaming it, and you can find their website here or their YouTube Channel where they also have a livestream as well.
For a small preview of the Spring Festival Gala, you can watch the video below. It has English subs.

Happy Spring Festival everyone! And yay for being able to hear Kaikai sing again!
