Asians now have another venue to showcase their talents.
Grammy-award winner David Foster, UK pop sensation and former Spice Girl Melanie C, Indonesian rock icon Anggun and Taiwanese-American pop idol Van Ness Wu (of F4 fame) are the celebrity judges in the season premiere of hit talent search show, Asia’s Got Talent on AXN.
Hui Keng Ang, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia said in a statement:
“We have put together a superb panel of judges for Asia’s Got Talent. This is definitely our most ambitious original series to date and is very much in line with the type of smart, high-quality local programming that audiences have come to expect from AXN.”
Paul O’Hanlon, Managing Director of FremantleMedia Asia adds: “We’re proud to say that Asia’s Got Talent will be the largest version ever of the Got Talent franchise, and our judges bring a depth and breadth of experience and talent worthy of this show.”
From thousands of applicants, the four judges must select the Asian acts who will move on to the semi-finals.
The select semi-finalists will then face AXN viewers who will ultimately determine who wins the first season of Asia’s Got Talent.
Adding to the excitement, the semi-finals and finale will be held at the iconic Marina Bay Sands, with the winner awarded a contract to return and perform live in Singapore.
