Malaysia’s very own Andrew Lee (#FlyingDagger) performed a captivating, death-defying magic act on last night’s premiere of Asia’s Got Talent Season 2, impressing returning judges David Foster, Anggun and newcomer, Jay Park.
Andrew, a 31-year-old magician and mentalist, has been performing for the past 13 years. Last night’s act involved a deck of cards, a flying dagger and the unwitting help of show hosts Alan Wong and Justin Bratton, leaving the judges speechless.
“That was excellent, I don’t know how you did that but that was really an amazing trick. You had the blindfold on and threw the knife. I was flabbergasted, I don’t know what to say,” Jay Park said.
“Great execution, great style, great confidence,” David added.
Andrew received three yeses from the judges and he’s now in the running to appear in the Semi-Finals in November.
Other Malaysian acts performing in the premiere episode included a snake-handler who risked his life to kiss a cobra as well as a rapper who could rap in 10 different languages.
The first Golden Buzzer of the season went to Jay Park’s choice, ADEM Dance Crew from the Kyrgyz Republic.
“To be honest, I’ve seen a lot of animation shows but the way you put yours together is crazy. It was amazing, it was really, really good,” said Jay.
ADEM dance crew will head directly to the Semi-Finals and they are now one step closer to winning the grand prize of USD100,000.
