Abu Dhabi: Marina Mall Abu Dhabi is all set to welcome international stars of TV’s most popular talent show for seven days of amazing, fun-filled performances from January 14-20.
The Got Talent Live show will see winners or runners-up from previous series of the TV show take to the stage during two daily 45-minute extravaganzas at 4.30pm and 7.30pm.
The show will be made up of singers, dancers, acrobats, an illusionist, an impressionist and a ventriloquist, all of who have been invited by broadcasting giant MBC.
Among the stars who will take to the stage will be Japanese artist Kenichi Ebina, who won the 8th season of the hugely popular America’s Got Talent in 2013. His bizarre style that combines acting and storytelling with different dance moves made him a firm favourite with American audiences.
Also performing will be eight-year-old Issy Simpson, who was runner up in the 2017 edition of Britain’s Got Talent. The pint-sized magician impressed the judges in Series 11 of the hugely popular UK TV show with her passion for tricks inspired by her grandfather, who was a professional illusionist.
Other performers include the winner of 2014’s Ukraine’s Got Talent, Gennady Tkachenko-Papizh, who imitates the sound of birds and many other animals using only his mouth, and the winner of 2016’s Romania’s Got Talent, Laura Bretan, a young opera singer who has been performing since she was just four years old.
The dancing stars of the ‘Got Talent Live’ show will be led by circus performer Tatiana Kundik, whose performance left the judges and audience speechless.
Tatiana’s amazing slack-wire act will be complimented by OK WorldWide. The group of highly skilled free runners and hip-hop dancers made it to the semi-final of the 9th season of Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 and have been entertaining crowds across the world ever since.
Fresh from the 2017 final of France’s Got Talent, inspirational dance act Florent and Justin reduced the judges to tears with their performance which demonstrates the daily difficulties faced by people in wheelchairs. Florent, who is himself paralysed, and his friend Justin were brought together by their love of dance and offer a strong message through their incredible choreography. Another highlight is a performance by Singaporean ventriloquist who participated in Asia’s Got Talent in 2015.
Chelsea Copenhaver, marketing manager, Marina Mall Abu Dhabi, said: “We are hugely excited to be hosting the Got Talent Live show. With so many incredible performers from all over the world it’s sure to be a wonderful experience for visitors and a great way for us to kick off our thrilling calendar of events for 2018.”
