I found it "cheap" compared to previous years but I think this was wanted by CCTV to follow the humble image wanted by Mister Xi.

The magician was pretty horrible (though his bill changing routine was quite good) and I loved the Hungarian shadow act, this was amazing.

Overall I found the show lacked of passion and, paradoxically, that it wasn't Chinese enough.

Seemed pretty much the same as every year to me. Buddy of mine played the sax, so that was cool to see. I wonder if that poor girl is still spinning?

The program was overly blitzy and ostentatious the past few years.  I like the more simplified image; the backdrops this year are more tasteful and still spectacular for selected performances.

favorite performances:  synchronized drummers,  long sleeve dance - gorgeous!

Yes I agreed it was overly ostentatious in the past few years and that's why in comparison this one seemed cheaper (which is funny considering this year's director had been paid much more money than last year's).

What bothered my was the lack of a host. The shows went one after another.

Of course, overall, it is still a great show, CCTV spring festival gala is one of the most amazing TV shows from an artistic point of view.

If you are Chinese and over 50, you might enjoy it.
