Malaysia, it’s time to get your act together! AXN, Asia’s number one general entertainment channel, announced that the highly anticipated open auditions for Asia’s Got Talent Season 2 will be held in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, 20th May 2017.
AXN has selected Sunway City, Kuala Lumpur to hold the auditions, where thousands of aspiring hopefuls will descend on the iconic Sunway Lagoon for their chance to perform in front of AXN’s producers.
“Asia’s Got Talent is the world’s biggest talent competition that unites the region’s diverse cultures in a vibrant celebration of the performing arts,” said Virginia Lim, Senior Vice President and the Head of Content, Production and Marketing, Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia. “This season, we invite all Malaysians of any age and with any talent to show our producers what they can do. We are delighted to welcome Sunway City, Kuala Lumpur, as our official destination partner for the open auditions and together we look forward to discovering the next generation of Malaysian superstars on AXN.”
Founder and Chairman of Sunway Group, Tan Sri Dr Jeffrey Cheah AO, said, “We are pleased to partner with Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia to bring the Asia’s Got Talent open audition to Sunway City, Kuala Lumpur. This is an incredible opportunity for Malaysians to showcase their talents to the world. This landmark collaboration will be among the many mega events we are seeking to host as part of our Amazing Sunway City campaign that will bring the world to Sunway City and Malaysia to the world. We hope to list Sunway City as among the top three must-visit destinations in the country.”
The open auditions will be held at Sunway Lagoon where some of the world’s top artists have performed, including Katy Perry, Jason Derulo, Justin Bieber, Big Bang, Wonder Girls, Black Eyed Peas, Fifth Harmony, Flo Rida and many more. Due to the expected turn out and exceptionally high demand for an audition slot, aspiring stars are encouraged to pre-apply online (www.AXN-Asia.com/AsiasGotTalent) to expedite the registration process on the day.
Doors will open from 10:30am and upon arrival at Sunway Lagoon at Sunway City, Kuala Lumpur, performers should enter the theme park via the Surf Beach entrance, located next to Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa.
Here, they will receive a wristband which identifies them as an Asia’s Got Talent audition participant. They can then make their way by foot through Sunway Lagoon’s lush environment, where they will arrive at the amphitheater and wait for their turn to audition, and perhaps even realise their dreams.
If an act is successful, they may then be selected to perform at the judges’ auditions later in the year. The judges’ auditions comprise the first five episodes of the series and precede the semi-finals and the grand finale episode where the winner of Asia’s Got Talent will be crowned, winning USD100,000 in cash.
