Now we visit some of the future stars who joined the CCTV Children's Talent Contest in Weihai of East China's Shandong Province.

Along with the release of the final results in singing, dancing and instrument programs, numerous touching stories have also emerged. A perfect example of that comes from the group that won gold for violin playing.

As they performed for the final pre-contest rehearsal, these children were just like fish in water, easy and confident. Not too many people know that the team comes from a very small county in Jilin Province. As students of Fuyu Experimental Primary School, most of them have never attended such a large-scale national contest.

Wang Shuang, student, said, "Everyday we practice hard, normally from 4 or 5 a.m. and stay up until around 10 in the evening."

Surviving preliminary competition of nearly three months, the team performed in the final contest on Wednesday, facing off against 29 other teams. But even a terrific performance did not satisfy these emulative children. Back from the contest scene, they were still weeping about little mistakes here and there on the stage.

Not until they were informed about winning the championship did they dare to relax and enjoy the moment. It's the team spirit built through this unforgettable experience that has helped these young participants stand out from other competitors. This matches the contest's intention to nurture young people's cooperation and coordination ability.
