The critically acclaimed talent show “Got Talent” has finally revealed the judges for the regional version, “Asia’s Got Talent” which consists of big-named artistes such as Canadian musician and Grammy Award winner, David Foster, former Sporty Spice from former British girl group, Spice Girls’ Melanie C, Indonesian rock sensation, Anggun and American-Taiwanese idol, Vanness Wu.
Named as the world’s most successful reality TV show ever by the Guinness World Records, the Asia’s Got Talent edition is set to air on AXN Asia across 20 countries in the region this coming March, as talented performers such as singers, dancers, comedians, actors and more from all over the region compete to take home the coveted winning title.
“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,” said Hui Keng Ang, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Sony Pictures Television Networks in Asia.
Managing Director of FremantleMedia Asia Paul O’Hanlon also added, “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.”
The open ground auditions for Asia’s Got Talent already took place last year at specific locations in six countries; Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia.
Also, the semi-finals and finale of the talent show will take place at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands, where the winner of the first season of Asia’s Got Talent will be awarded a contract to return and perform live at Asia’s leading entertainment destination, Marina Bay Sands.
