THE highly anticipated third season of Asia’s Got Talent will premiere on Feb 7 at 8.30pm over on AXN Asia (Astro Channel 701/721).
With talent from 17 countries across Asia, fans of this show can look forward to a wide variety of acts that include dance groups, magicians, singers, comedy acts, musicians and acrobats.
The age of the talents taking part this year ranges from six to 69 years-old.
All of them are competing to win the grand prize of US$100,000 and the opportunity to showcase their talent to millions of viewers across various platforms.
Virginia Lim, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia said, “Asia’s Got Talent continues to be the region’s favorite entertainment reality series on TV and in the social sphere. It provides a powerful platform for aspiring performers to launch their careers, and we’re thrilled that many previous contestants have toured internationally as result of Asia’s Got Talent, including season one winner, El Gamma Penumbra and last season’s winner, The Scared Riana.”
The judges, 16-time Grammy-award winner and music producer David Foster; internationally acclaimed singing sensation Anggun, and multi-platinum recording artist Jay Park, will determine who goes through to the next round in the first five episodes.
