David Foster, Anggun and Jay Park have arrived in Singapore to start filming for the third season of the record-breaking Asia’s Got Talent on its flagship channel, AXN.
The trio’s arrival coincided with Sony Pictures Television (SPT) Networks, Asia’s announcement early this week that the three will return to the judges’ table of AGT.
“David, Anggun and Jay are a fantastic team and we’re delighted to welcome them back for season 3. Each judge brings a very different vibe to the show as they draw on their respective talents and vast industry experience to critique the acts,” said Virginia Lim, SVP and General Manager, SPT Networks, Asia.
“The new season will be our most surprising yet, with a bigger variety of acts and incredible stories of dreams and determination,” she added.
The Asia’s Got Talent casting team concluded its pan-regional open audition tour in July and has shortlisted over 150 colorful acts from 17 countries in Asia. The three judges will take the hot seats to help discover Asia’s next superstar.
Billed as the biggest talent competition in the world, Asia’s Got Talent features a variety of acts of any age and with any dream competing for the winning crown and a grand prize of $100,000. Over 15 countries were represented in season two and were beamed into 46 million AXN households in 19 countries across the region. On social, Asia’s Got Talent content garnered over 310 million collective video views on Facebook and YouTube, making the show the region’s hottest entertainment series of the year.
Asia’s Got Talent is supported by regional sponsors Princess Cruises, the official cruise line of Asia’s Got Talent and Great Eastern, the market leader and a well-established trusted brand in Malaysia and Singapore.
The Got Talent franchise was created by Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment and is co-produced and owned by Syco Entertainment and FremantleMedia. It is entered in the Guinness World Records as the Most Successful Reality Television Format in history with 70 local versions produced across Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle-East, Africa and the Americas. Around the world, the Got Talent format airs in a total of 186 countries.
AXN Asia is wholly owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment and managed by Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia, which also operates leading channels including Animax, Sony Channel, ONE and GEM.
