Despite all his struggles and nervousness, Bobby Kim won first place on the October 9 episode of MBC′s I Am A Singer.

The episode aired the first competition of the eighth round, a duet special, in which Bobby King brought his group, Buga Kingz, on stage with him to sing Proud Mary, originally sung by Jo Young Nam.

Bobby Kim mounted the stage with the comment, “I want everyone in the audience to stand up and go crazy.” He showed that he was enjoying his performance himself, even showing off some dance moves he had practiced for this song. The audience soaked in his enthusiasm and showed that they really were enjoying his performance, shouting out loud and standing on their feet.

After the performance ended, the audience sent Buga Kingz a standing ovation. Bobby Kim expressed his thanks in a later interview, saying, “I was worried because the Buga Kingz members [said they] felt so awkward, but fortunately they received explosive responses. I’m thankful toward my dongsaengs (little brothers), too.”

Bobby Kim not only grabbed the eyes and ears of his audience, but also those of the panelists. The expert panelists gave Kim much praise, saying, “I think Bobby Kim finally has it,” “Their choice of song was great” and “He could fill in for Yoon Do Hyun’s ability to lead the audience and Kim Bum Su’s wit.”

Bobby Kim came in first place with 23.2% of the votes. Jo Gyu Chan, who appeared on the show for the first time, came in last.
