Lin Yu Chun, the Taiwanese man whose singing made him an overnight celebrity and Taiwan's answer to Susan Boyle, has been voted off of the talent show that made him famous.
The 24-year-old had attempted to woo the judges with a song in Mandarin after choosing Western songs such as 'I Will Always Love You' by Whitney Houston.
However, his plan backfired.
"You rarely hit a wrong note. But you did today. What's wrong with you?" one judge commented.
Mr Lin's agent, Stella Teng, said that Lin is keeping a positive outlook, with reports that he is in talks for a record deal.
"He feels that success cannot possibly come without failure."
