PHILIPPINES (February 8, 2019) After giving us some of the most memorable contestants in the past seasons of Asia’s Got Talent, Philippines continue to deliver even stronger acts in the premiere episode of Asia’s Got Talent Season 3.
Standout acts from the episode include HK Sisters, a singing pair who received a standing ovation from the audience with their touching performance; Zeexhie a father-and-daughter dancing duo who really impressed Anggun; Junior Good Vibes, a dance crew of 15 members from Sampaloc who has been practicing everyday for the past 4 years to perform on Asia’s Got Talent and ZooDiva, a singer with an extraordinary gift that you just have to watch.
In the same episode, Jay Park made Asia’s Got Talent’s history as he rewarded his Golden Buzzer for TK Jiang, a digital magician who scored the first Golden Buzzer for Singapore.
“I was very impressed,” said Jay Park, “You know I’ve never seen digital magic before and that was very, very entertaining. I really like it.”
“That was unique. But then, it was so short. I feel like I wanted to see more,” Anggun chimed in.
TK Jiang, who started his magic journey in Singapore, was overwhelmed with emotions as the audience went crazy for his unorthodox magic tricks. Currently a full-time student, TK Jiang wanted to put a modern spin into magic by going digital.
The Golden Buzzer ensures that we will be seeing more of TK Jiang in the Semi-Finals in March where he will have his shot at the USD100,000 grand prize and the winning title.
