Dubbed as the world’s biggest talent competition, Asia’s Got Talent premieres tonight, March 12 at 8.05 pm on AXN with subsequent episodes airing tonight.
Celebrity judges comprise of former Spice Girl member Melanie C., Taiwanese-American pop idol and actor Van Ness Wu, Indonesian rock icon Anggun, and the 16 time Grammy-winning Canadian musician David Foster.
The four judges must select the most incredible performances from thousands of hopefuls from 15 territories across Asia. Those who make it to the semi-finals will contend with an even tougher judge, the home audience, who will vote for the grand prize winner.
As with the other franchise, the Golden Buzzer is still present in this edition wherein each judge has one opportunity to send a brilliant act straight to the semi-finals.
What’s at stake is the $100,000 along with the opportunity to return and perform at Asia’s leading entertainment destination, Marina Bay Sands– where the semi-finals and finale are to be held.
Hosting the show are former contestants of The Amazing Race Asia Season 2, Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez.
