3 nations, 5 hours of 'Got Talent' on TV

WINNERS and finalists from the "Got Talent" series in Britain and America will perform and exchange their acts together with Chinese talents during the finale of the third season of "China's Got Talent" tomorrow night.

The five-hour finale will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Arena and broadcast live on Dragon TV starting at 7:30pm.

George Sampson, a street dancer and actor, won the second season of "Britain's Got Talent." He will showcase his body-popping dance with Zhuo Jun, second season champion of "China's Got Talent."

Sampson said he was very proud and honored to perform with Zhuo.

Scottish singer Jai McDowall, who won the fifth series of "Britain's Got Talent" last year, will sing a romantic song with Cai Hongping, or Auntie Sweetie.

"I'm looking forward to performing to millions in the Chinese audience," McDowall said.

Tomorrow's show will also feature the comedy magic show of Nathan Burton and a hilarious musical show by the novelty dance group "Those Funny Little People" - both were popular finalists from "America's Got Talent."

Father-son comedy dance act "Stavros Flatley," finalists in the third season of "Britain's Got Talent," said that performing for the Chinese viewers would be a dream come true.

Six Chinese contestants have advanced to the show's final. Among them are the young Yunnan Province sisters Linda Li and Vanda Li, who call for environmental protection; Pan Qianqian, the singer known for her baritone voice; Taiwanese circus juggler Song Jiazheng; handstand talent Tang Ronghai; the jujitsu talent Magic Tone's band; and the street dance band Snake Men of the World.
