MICHAEL Bolton is hosting the ongoing AXN channel talent competition “Asian Dream, The Search for the Next Rising Star”, and he is simply awed by their contestants who come from different Asian countries.
“I’m inspired by the sheer raw talent and star power that I’ve seen so far from the Asian Dream contestants and I couldn’t be more excited to help refine their talent alongside my fellow mentors and judges,” he says. “I know that viewers will be equally as thrilled as us to see the contestants come into their own and grow more confident throughout their journeys on the show. As we approach the season finale, the next few episodes are set to take the remaining contestants to new heights, and they’ll learn from some of the best in the business to master the art of stage presence, brand themselves and unlock the star quality needed to become Asia’s next big music sensation.”
