Taiwan Television Enterprise’s (TTV) annual “Superstar: Red VS White Show” is the largest variety show on Lunar New Year’s Eve in Taiwan. The 2017 show was pre-recorded at the Taipei Arena.

The annual show splits big stars into “red” and “white” teams, which will then compete with each other. This year, TTV especially invited Japanese pop diva Mika Nakashima, rock icon Takanori Nishikawa, popular South Korean girl group GFriend and boy group SF9. The show is scheduled for tonight on Lunar New Year’s Eve to welcome the Year of the Rooster.

Formosa Television’s (FTV) Lunar New Year’s Eve show is hosted by entertainers including Hu Gua and comedian group Plungon. Chinese Television System (CTS) is working with Sanlih E-Television (SET) to produce and broadcast their show together for the first time. The show, with popular comedian Chu Ko Liang, will celebrate Lunar New Year’s Eve tonight.
