Vietnam’s Got Talent, to retain the original format, will be open to contestants of all ages, sexes, and professions who have talent in performing arts.
The two are still looking for a host and judges for the preliminary rounds.
Four contestants will reach the final and the winner will be chosen by the audience for a VND 400 million (US$19,200) cash prize.
The British show produced by FremantleMedia and SYCOtv has been acquired in nearly 50 countries.
The most famous discovery in Britain’s Got Talent was possibly Susan Boyle, the 50-year-old Scottish singer who rose to international fame, in 2009.
The first national screening for Vietnam’s Got Talent will be held from October 30 to November 26, and the show will be shown on VTV3 at 9pm every Sunday from December 18.
Registration opens September 26 and more details can be found at www.vietnamgottalent.vn.
