Asia's Got Talent - Anggun Pushes Her Golden Buzzer for Taiwanese Dance Crew

It was an eventful night for Taiwanese dance crew, Maniac Family when Anggun pushed her Golden Buzzer for them in last night’s episode of Asia’s Got Talent.

The Maniac Family consists of a teacher and her students who have been practicing ‘like maniacs’ in the past few years for Asia’s Got Talent. While they are a hip hop dance crew, they want to incorporate a little bit of their Chinese culture into their dance moves.



“I really, really liked it. You guys were very, very clean and precise. I loved all your expressions and fierceness and your attitude,” Jay Park said. “I think you guys were the best dance crew we have had on so far!”

“I liked the fact that you incorporated a bit of your culture. There’s a little bit of martial art,” Anggun added. “Well done, great!”

“I just love it when I can’t see anybody make a mistake. It was so precise and everybody was on their game,” David Foster said.

And when it came to voting time, Anggun simply asked “What is your favourite colour?” before pushing her Golden Buzzer for the dance crew.

“Congratulations! It was an excellent performance!” Anggun proclaimed.

The Golden Buzzer ensures that we will be seeing more of Maniac Family in the Semi-Finals in March where they will have a shot at the USD100,000 grand prize and the winning title.

Watch the encore telecast of this episode on Sunday at 9:05pm (8:05pm JKT/BKK) on AXN. New episode of Asia’s Got Talent airs every Thursday at 8.30pm (7:30pm JKT/BKK) on AXN. To follow the journey of this season’s acts, check out #AXNAsia and #AsiasGotTalent.

Singapore Scores First Asia's Got Talent Golden Buzzer in Three Seasons

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.
