Singing Competition Series

NOW CASTING
This project in THE FINAL DAYS OF CASTING. Interested applicants should submit their ASAP, NOT TOMORROW, NOW!

***Applicant must speak English and hold a passport from the country they are applying to represent. Our shows have a high success and participating in this series would allow for greater exposure throughout Southeast and Norther Asia–Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Taipei and Mainland China. This reach will offer you a great opportunity to build your social media presence as well as your general recognisability throughout these regions as it will be airing to roughly 27 million. Contestants will be mentored by Micheal Bolton and several celebrity guest judges and mentors. This is a good opportunity for singers who would like to develop themselves as more well rounded “artists” and performers.

THE BREAK DOWN:

Michael Bolton is on a mission to find the next rising star of Asia and offers 6 aspiring singers a chance to fulfill their dream as a performing artist.

Asian Superstar is a reality-based music competition series which focuses on discovering the “diamond in the rough” talents around Asia through a singing competition designed to hone each contestant’s individual style and performing ability. Over the course of 6 episodes (30 minutes each), a slate of challenges will be presented to the contestants, designed to test their talent, passion, and ambition– ultimately revealing whether they have what it takes to succeed in the music industry. Throughout the competition, Michael Bolton and other celebrity guest mentors will critique and advise contestants, pushing them to their utmost potential in hopes of transforming them into the next rising artist.

Only the strong will survive. This competition requires more than just a great voice. It requires more than just an X-factor. Talent, drive, and the will to succeed might give one lucky singer the chance to perform live on the grand finale stage with Michael Bolton himself, and open for his Asian Dream Tour.
