MANILA, Philippines —  The stage is set and the thrills are about to begin as "Asia's Got Talent" bows across the region in a week's time on AXN!

Debuting first on AXN on March 12, Thursday at 8.05 p.m. with subsequent episodes airing on its regular Thursday, 8.30 p.m. slot, the brand new series is the biggest talent competition in the world featuring some of the region's most breath-taking, jaw-dropping and mind-blowing performing artists competing for the coveted winning title.

"Asia's Got Talent" is the 63rd adaptation of the Guinness World Record-breaking hit "Got Talent" format, created by Simon Cowell's Syco Entertainment and is co-produced by Fremantle Media.

The "Got Talent" format is officially the most successful reality TV format in history and currently airs in 186 countries.

Each act competing in "Asia's Got Talent" will have to win over at least three "Yeses" from the esteemed celebrity judging panel comprising 16 time Grammy-winning Canadian musician David Foster, UK pop sensation and former Spice Girl Melanie C., Indonesian rock icon Anggun, and Taiwanese-American pop idol and actor Van Ness Wu.

Watch out for the glittering "Golden Buzzer moments", where each judge has one opportunity to send a brilliant act straight to the semi-finals at Marina Bay Sands.

The four judges must select the most incredible and amazing performances from thousands of hopefuls from 15 territories across Asia. Those who make it to the semi-finals will contend with an even tougher judge, the home audience who will decide the winner of "Asia's Got Talent".

Prizes worth $100,000 USD are at stake, along with the opportunity to return and perform at the iconic Marina Bay Sands, Asia's leading entertainment destination – where the semi-finals and finale are to be held.

Supporting the judges are Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez as hosts of "Asia's Got Talent". AXN audiences will remember the pair of friends as contestants of "The Amazing Race Asia Season 2" and hosts of the talk show "The Duke"
