Super Boy, or Kuaile Nan Sheng, is a singing contest dedicated solely to male contestants – kind of like a boys – only American Idol. Since its inception in 2007, Super Boy has evolved into a mainstream success in the People’s Republic of China. Especially attractive to audience members is their right to participate in the judging process by text-messaging their votes. According to Wikipedia, this is one of the largest democratic voting exercises to have ever occurred in China’s long and oftentimes tumultuous history.
