Yoon Mi Rae signs on to be a judge for “Superstar K3″

Singer/rapper Yoon Mi Rae has been appointed be the female judge of Mnet’s upcoming “Superstar K3″ series.

Succeeding Lee Hyori and Uhm Jung Hwa of seasons one and two respectively, Yoon Mi Rae will begin her role as a fixed judge alongside Lee Seung Chul and Yoon Jong Shin in August during the fourth preliminary rounds.

Mnet stated, “The concept of “Superstar K3″ is still what we announced at the beginning of the year – ‘diversity’. With that being said, we focused heavily on choosing a musician who would harmonize well with the other judges and evaluate the contestants on a diverse level.”

“Yoon Mi Rae is a musician who works in a distinctly different genre, compared to Lee Seung Chul and Yoon Jong Shin. She’s acknowledged for her vocal talents, but we also feel that her stage ownership and ability to perform are both unique and one of the best. The previous judging panels from seasons one and two gave confidence to the producers with their accurate and meticulous judging. As a musician who is both a mother of a child and the wife of a top star, we invited her to become a judge, as we believe she is an artist who has the capability to bring together all audition participants.”

Yoon Mi Rae’s agency expressed, “Yoon Mi Rae underwent a poster photoshoot with Lee Seung Chul and Yoon Jong Shin on the 18th. She did a lot of worrying, but she said she had made up her decision after traveling to China and America for the preliminary rounds. Most importantly, she said she has confidence in Lee Seung Chul and Yoon Jong Shin, as they’ve been doing so well thus far.”

“Rather than looking out for special techniques like the other two judges, Yoon Mi Rae will be judging according to the contestant’s passion, sentiments, and their ability to bring out their own unique colors.”

The first broadcast of “Superstar K3″ will take place on August 12th.

Ameriie Talks About Collaborating with Tiger JK and Tasha

A newly married Ameriie is already back at the studio working on her new album Cymatika Vol.1 which, according to Billboard’s The Juice, is about 80% complete. The singer says she will be experimenting with androgyny, and that her new album will be a mix of “trance and electronica.” Furthermore, instead of simply focusing on relationships as a subject matter, Ameriie wanted to go deeper for this album and explore what really makes us tick and what makes us human.

In the interview with The Juice, Amerie talked about some of the exciting collaborations on her album:

I did a Korean version of “Outside Your Body” with Drunken Tiger‘s (Korean/American hip-hop group) member, [Tiger] JK and his wife (Tasha Reid). Those are my collaborations. JK is like the Korean Jay-Z. She’s (Tasha) also a rapper. They’re both amazing. I’m doing a record or two for Tasha’s upcoming album. I haven’t done it yet, and she’s probably going to kill me because I’ve been running around doing so much.

Baek Jiyoung, BoA, and Yoon Mirae compete for the last "Superstar K3" judging spot

Mnet's popular talent show series "Superstar" is in its third running season this year and has enlisted the help of Lee Seung Chul and Yoon Jongshin as their judges for this season. "Superstar K3" is set to air next month and the show is still looking for its third judge.

It has been reported that the producers of "Superstar K3" has narrowed down the 3rd judge to three well-known female Korean artists: BoA, Baek Jiyoung, and Yoon Mirae (also known as T or Tasha). The third judge has always been a talented female judge who is known for their vocal and dancing abilities as seen in "Superstar K1" with Lee Hyori and "Superstar K2" with Uhm Junghwa. In general, these judges have mostly focused on the contestants vocal style and performance.

It has been said that BoA is a strong candidate as the third judge due to her vocal and dancing prowess, as well as being the 1st generation of Kpop idols to break successfully overseas. However, the three big companies, JYP, SM, and YG Entertainment have announced their own global audition scheduled to air later in the year and there are possibilities that she will join that show instead due to her responsibilities to SM Entertainment.

Yoon Mirae is especially known for her rapping skills in addition to vocal and dancing skills. She previously made appearances on the first two seasons of "Superstar K." She has become a strong candidate as the third judge due to "Superstar K" global aspect.

Baek Jiyoung is known for her exceptional vocal skills brought on by her husky voice and she has had various experience with dance as she released various hit dance songs in the past. Her sense of humor seen on other variety shows she has been taking part in would add entertainment to "Superstar K."

"Superstar K3" is set to air its first episode on August 12th, in which the winner will be awarded the grand prize of approximately $470,000USD and $190,000USD for recording costs.

Which of the three artists above would you like to see as "Superstar K3" third judge?
