Anggun Cipta – our favourite Indonesian Eurovision star – is going pan-continental. And we’re not just talking about her music career. In June 2015 she’ll appear as a judge on the first ever series of Asia’s Got Talent, a regional version of Simon Cowell’s Got Talent franchise. The show will be broadcast across 20 Asian countries and will feature the usual mix of singers, dancers, comedians and no-hopers.
The “Echo (You And I)” singer will be joined on the panel by Taiwanese-American actor Vaness Wu, Canadian record producer David Foster, and wait for it – Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm aka Mel C aka Sporty Spice. Colour us excited!

Judging from this playful Twitter exchange, the spices are already sizzling. Shall we just make Anggun an honorary Indonesian Spice?

Anggun is already a dab hand at talent show judging, having sat on the panel for X Factor Indonesia, X Factor Around The World and Indonesia’s Got Talent. And lest we forget, she also critiqued last year’s French Eurovision hopefuls on Les Chansons D’Abord. The lady has global talent show domination in her sights, and she won’t stop until she’s dethroned Simon Cowell. Needless to say we have no problem with that whatsoever!
