Taiwanese magician wins ‘AGT’
After an intensive 10-week search in Asia, which saw hundreds of hopeful acts from across 17 countries auditioning for that one big break, the viewers have voted, and their votes have crowned a nimble-fingered magician from Taiwan, Eric Chien, as the winner of “Asia’s Got Talent” Season 3.
It is the first time that a Taiwanese has won since the popular talent competition started in 2015.
It was a tough competition in last week’s grand finals show with eight other talented grand finalists, including dance crew Junior Good Vibes, shadow play master Shadow Ace, and acrobatic dance act Power Duo from the Philippines.
“‘Asia’s Got Talent’ has really been an important platform that allowed me to showcase my magic to the world,” said Chien.
