AXN Announces Fourth Golden Buzzer for Asia’s Got Talent Ahead of World Premiere on October 12

AXN announced today that there is an added twist in its latest season of Asia’s Got Talent: a fourth Golden Buzzer to be pushed by new show hosts Alan Wong and Justin Bratton.

The announcement comes ahead of the highly-anticipated Asia’s Got Talent Season 2 which premieres next Thursday, October 12 at 8:30pm on AXN.

The Golden Buzzer, a privilege typically reserved for celebrity judges, David Foster, Anggun and Jay Park, is pushed for an act deemed so incredible that it is sent straight through to the semi-finals for a closer shot at the grand prize of USD100,000. This season, the hosts and each judge will have the power to push the coveted Golden Buzzer only once during the first five episodes called the ‘judges’ auditions’.

“The Golden Buzzer is a life-changing and highly emotional moment on Asia’s Got Talent where viewers share in the journey of the act. Empowering the hosts to choose their favorite act adds an extra layer of excitement to the show. Many of our fans on the Asia’s Got Talent Facebook page requested for this to happen, so we’re thrilled to make the hosts’ Golden Buzzer a reality,” said Virginia Lim, Senior Vice President and Head of Content, Production and Marketing, Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia.

In Season one of the hit-rated series, Filipino shadow dance group, El Gamma Penumbra, received Anggun’s Golden Buzzer and ultimately won the series. The new season of Asia’s Got Talent promises a bigger, bolder and greater variety of acts from 15 countries which includes a mesmerizing array of magic, dance, music and martial arts, all vying for the four Golden Buzzers.

Asia’s Got Talent Season 2 will premiere on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 8:30pm on AXN. To follow the journey of this season’s Golden Buzzer acts, check out #AXNAsia, #AsiasGotTalent and #GoldenBuzzer.
