It was real privilege for Wayne to host the Grand Finals and Results show of #AsiasGotTalent season 2 for #AXN. Wayne not only shared the stage with Asia’s best entertainment acts, he also got to get the live audience interacting with judges David Foster, Anggun and Jay Park upclose.
The key to success for this hosting engagement was to ensure that the emcee could deliver an international, family-friendly tone. This brief was given to Wayne by AXN’s marketing and production team, in light of some previous hosts being too “local” and “slapstick”, which they felt brought the show’s branding down and wasn’t delivering the kind of premium experience they wanted audiences watching the live shows to have.
Fortunately, hyping up global audiences tastefully is one of Wayne’s natural strengths as a professional compere!
