More ' Talent' sought in show's new season

THE fourth season of the televised reality show "China's Got Talent" was launched yesterday, increasing the number of its recruitment locations from last season's 35 cities to 60 major cities across the country.

Through the end of October, talented people from all over the country can apply through the show's website,, or by calling 4008-812-311. The show will be shown on Dragon TV starting October 28.

The three-person jury has not been picked. But organizers said they will invite celebrities based on recommendations and votes of users on the website.

"The new season will focus on the dreams of ordinary people," said show spokesman Lu Wei. "The four-month recruitment process will be made into micro films or documentaries to provide the audience an insight into the unknown stories behind the stage."

In 2010, Dragon TV bought a three-year format copyright for "China's Got Talent." Lu said that in light of the show's huge popularity in China, they are considering purchasing a renewal and extension of the copyright.

"Talent is always the soul of the show," Lu said. "China has a large population, with a lot of untapped talent. We hope to develop the show into a cross-media cultural brand and provide a bigger platform for them."
