The finale of the second season of “Asia’s Got Talent” was held Thursday at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, which turned out to be the most thrilling night of the year.
Fans have voted and judges have made their picks; so here are the nine grand finalists of this high-octane season:
Indonesian singer and harpist Angela July (#AGTVote2) impressed the judges so much that she received the first judges’ pick of the season.
The awe-inspiring vocal percussion ability of Philippines’ beatboxer Neil Rey Garcia Llanes (#AGTVote6) has made him a social phenomenon on Facebook and YouTube.
It takes a lot of work to sync his dancing with his visual art, but the hosts’ Golden Buzzer pick, Canion Shijirbat (#AGTVote8) from Mongolia delivered a truly unique performance in both of his auditions.
Kyrgyzstan’s ADEM Dance Crew’s (#AGTVote9) delivered yet again with a strong “Night in the Museum” inspired performance.
If there’s one act that truly represented this season’s unpredictability, it would have to be Indonesian viral sensation The Sacred Riana (#AGTVote11) whose performance clips have been viewed over 70 million times globally.
Hailing from The Philippines, DM-X Comvalenoz (#AGTVote16) pulled a 180 to show us the feminine side of their group, performing a dance that was a perfect blend of sexy, glamour and class.
Taiwanese child prodigy Feng E (#AGTVote19) received David Foster’s Golden Buzzer and judges’ pick, making him a double threat.
Representing Malaysia, illusionist Sobhi Shaker (#AGTVote23) has been declared the best magician that David Foster has ever seen.
Flyers from the south, Philippines’ Urban Crew (#AGTVote24) gave an adrenaline pumping ninja-style dance, complete with inhuman jumps, flips and spins, straight out of an anime!
