Dia Frampton, runner-up of the first season of The Voice, will come to Vietnam on December 28 for a guest performance on Giong Hat Viet, the local adaptation of the American singing show, VnExpress reported.

Dia will sing with the eight finalists and give a solo performance at the semifinal round set to take place on December 30.

In addition to singing, she will participate in a charity event at the Ho Chi Minh City's Association for the Support of Vietnamese Handicapped and Orphans.

The 25-year-old singer said she was honored to come to Vietnam and accept the invitation to perform at the show's first season.

First aired in July, Giong Hat Viet (The Voice Vietnam) was an instant success, attracting a large audience.

However, its prestige was jeopardized in early September when an eight-minute recording posted on Youtube showed the show's music director apparently dictating who would qualify and who would not.

The director, Phuong Uyen, claimed she was innocent, arguing  that she had been framed by the clever editing of different recordings.

However, she resigned a week later for health reasons.

According to Google, Giong Hat Viet's rigging scandal is the most searched item in Vietnam in 2012.
