And we have a winner.

After airing for close to three months, former teen idol Alec Su has come out tops in Season 2 of Chinese reality singing competition, Call Me By Fire.

The 48-year-old former member of ’80s boyband Little Tigers beat out 17 others in the final round to be crowned champion in the finale on Friday (Nov 4), obtaining a grand total of 246 points.

Amid the loud cheers and applause that erupted when his name was announced, Alec shared onstage after receiving his award: “I won’t cry, I don’t want to cry… I never thought I’d have the opportunity to perform on stage again… Thank you to everyone for the validation.”

Alec, who has been forging a path in the Chinese entertainment industry in recent years, had previously shared how he actively lost weight to join the competition.

He also revealed secrets for maintaining his youthful looks, such as avoiding the sun and doing mouth exercises, among other tips.
