It’s a first in Asia’s Got Talent’s history as Jay Park pressed his Golden Buzzer for TK Jiang, a digital magician representing Singapore in the premiere episode of Asia’s Got Talent Season 3.
“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.
23-year-old TK Jiang, who started his magic journey in Singapore, was overwhelmed with emotions as the audience went crazy over 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.
Other highlights of the two-hour premiere include HK Sisters, a pair of sisters who received a standing ovation from the audience; Fran Sisir, an Indonesian with a talent unlike any other, and Junior Good Vibes, an energetic dance crew that the judges did not hesitate to say yes to.
