David Foster, Melanie C, Anggun and Van Ness Wu are ‘Asia’s Got Talent’ Judges

It’s a YES! Grammy-award winner David Foster, UK pop sensation and former Spice Girl Melanie C, Indonesian rock icon Anggun and Taiwanese-American pop idol Van Ness Wu have been named as the celebrity judging panel for the season premiere of hit talent search show, “Asia’s Got Talent” on AXN.


Billed as the biggest talent competition in the world, “Asia’s Got Talent” will light up screens across Asia in March on AXN and will feature some of the region’s most incredible performing artists as they compete to take home the coveted winning title.

Hui Keng Ang, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia said, “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.”

Paul O’Hanlon, Managing Director of FremantleMedia Asia said, “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.”

From thousands of applicants, the four judges must select Asia’s most jaw-dropping, mind-blowing, and breathtaking performances. Those who move on to the semi- finals will face an even more intimidating judge, the AXN audience at home who will ultimately determine who wins the first season of Asia’s Got Talent. Adding to the excitement, the semi-finals and finale will be held at the iconic Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, with the winner awarded a contract to return and perform live at Asia’s leading entertainment destination.

    Eto ang dapat panoorin kesa yung walang wentang The Voice Philippines, panget ng production. Si Lea lang ang credible na judge, OA pa. Si Bamboo ewan kung bakit sobrang bilib sa sarili wala namang napatunayan kundi mag-adik kaya nawala sa Rivermaya. Si Apl de Ap naman walang Star Power kundi pa nakilalang member ng Black Eyed Peas. Si Sarah gumaganda ang aura pero walang kwentang judge, walang balls magsabi ng totoo kung hindi maganda ang performance.

    Tangangers kasi mga ateng yang si DarkfallingAngel. Palibhasa walang ibang station ang TV nila aside from GMA7. Subukan mo kayang gumamit ng ABS-CBN Mobile para minsan updated ka din ano?? Masyado ka kung pumuri sa mga talents ng Kapuso e wala namang sinabi sa Kapamilya. Nanonood din ako ng Kapuso but nothing is good to watch for.

    David Foster di mo kilala? Melanie C di mo rin kilala? Anggun na sikat din sa Europe di mo kilala? Van Ness Wu di mo kilala? Taga saan ka ba, taga North Pole?

    Napaka sarcastic naman ng comments ni Dark Falling Angel. Parang gustong pagtawanan ng madla yung mga GMA talents na minention nya.

    Yan na ang judges? Sinetch ang mga yan? Mas sikat pa si Francheska Farr at Barbie Forteza diyan! Dapat si Thea Tolentino ang host dahil super taas ng ratings ng The half sisters! GMA worldclass! We Kapusos rock!
