American pop legend Michael Bolton was amazed by the Korean singers who performed his songs on KBS2’s “Immortal songs 2” Saturday.

The popular Korean singers onstage included Lena Park, Aliee, Jay Park and Hyorin. Sohyang, in particular, gave a perfect rendition of the legend’s “Leon on Me,” receiving a standing ovation from Michael Bolton.

“‘Leon on Me’ is the song that I always include in my concert and I had heard various versions of the song, but Sohyang’s version was the best one ever. I can’t believe it. It was such a masterly performance,” Michael said.

“This is the first time in my life that I had a chance to see all the talented singers in a single day. I had come a long way from L.A, but now I’ve found the reason that I should have come here,” the singer added after all the performances were over.

Sohyang’s “Lean on Me” won the competition with her powerful sharp voice in high notes beating Lena Park’s “Completely,” on the Saturday episode of “Immortal songs 2.”
