PETALING JAYA: 2 Malaysian representatives have made the country proud by making it to the Finals of Asia’s Got Talent (AGT) Season Three, which are the homegrown female vocal group “Nama” and “Human Calculator” Yaashwin Sarawanan.
Last night’s episode of the talent competition saw Nama being chosen as the Judges’ Pick – a unanimous decision made by the show’s three judges, David Foster, Anggun and Jay Park, to send a contestant straight to the finals.
Nama – comprising Nur Fazrina; Noor Syamimi Makhetar, 24; Norfazira Malik, 24; and Nur Farahida Dolhadi, 24 – first met through an arts festival at Universiti Malaya and formed the group in 2017.
Should the girls win, they hope to use the US$100,000 (RM407,500) grand prize to further the group’s music career.
Meanwhile, 15-year-old Yaashwin, whose speedy calculations earned him the nickname “Human Calculator”, won the hearts of the public, garnering enough votes to send him to the finals.
With Nama and Yaashwin taking two out of nine spots in the finals, this season marks Malaysia’s strongest showing at the AGT finals yet.
You can vote for Malaysian contestants Nama and Yaashwin by visiting www.AXN-Asia.com/AGTVote.
Watch the final performance show on April 4 and the final results show on April 11 on AXN (Astro Ch 701).
