All four judges eventually turned around after Hartono’s performace and called him a complete package. The singer chose Jay Chou to mentor him.

“I picked (him) because he is one of the more prolific songwriters on the panel. He started out as a songwriter for a label and was churning out songs every day. And I am so curious about the work ethic,” the singer explained why he chose Jay Chou to be his mentor.
