AXN has announced that the premiere date of the highly anticipated return of Asia’s Got Talent is slated for Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 8:30pm (BKK/JKT 7:30pm).
The hit-rated series, which broke regional pay-TV ratings records in 2015, will burst onto screens across Asia, featuring over 165 dynamic acts representing 15 countries.
As the world’s biggest talent contest, Asia’s Got Talent invites acts of any age and with any dream to compete for a USD100,000 grand prize. The new season will play host to a myriad of acts spanning multiple genres including magic, dancing, singing, instrumental, martial and visual arts and some more unusual acts that are too tricky to define.
The judges, 16-time Grammy-award winner and music producer David Foster; internationally acclaimed singing sensation Anggun and newcomer to the series, multi-platinum recording artist Jay Park, are in the hot seat to determine who goes through to the next round in the first five episodes, but it’s the audience – the ‘fourth judge’ – who will vote in the semi-final episodes to determine the ultimate winner.
Adding colour commentary to the series are the dynamic new hosts Alan Wong and Justin Bratton who are the contestants’ cheerleaders from side stage.
Asia’s Got Talent is the 67th adaptation of the Guinness-World-Record-breaking hit “Got Talent” format, which was created by Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment and is co-produced by FremantleMedia. The “Got Talent” format is officially the most successful reality TV format in history and currently airs in 186 countries.
