Singer 2017 is the first season of Chinese television series of the rebranded version of I Am a Singer season 5.

It is aired on Hunan Television and produced by Hong Tao, and its music director is Hong Kong senior musician Kubert Leung. It will be recorded in the Hunan Broadcasting System Radio and Television Center, Changsha, Hunan on January 10, 2017 and aired from January 21 to April 22, 2017 on Hunan Television.[1]

Singer 2017 includes Greater China and other areas famous singers. First-round competitors have Tan Jing and Tia Ray from Mainland China, Hong Kong Canadian singers Sandy Lam and Teresa Carpio, Hins Cheung from Hong Kong, Taiwanese band Lion, Malaysian singer Michael Wong and Dimash from Kazakhstan.[2] Returning singers have Jason Zhang from I Am a Singer Season 2, Terry Lin[3] and Julia Peng from I Am a Singer Season 1 and Li Jian from I Am a Singer Season 3.

As there were eight first-round singers, the first round featured elimination for the singer who receive the fewest votes.
