Over the course of seven episodes, the contestants from Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam are mentored, coached, and pushed to the limits by Michael Bolton, and his co-host, singing sensation Morrisette Amon, along with celebrity guest experts. 

Across the progressive elimination format, the singers face a wide range of physical and mental challenges that will make or break them, until the final showdown. The winner will perform in the Asian Dream concert tour with Michael Bolton next year.

Through this experience, as they grow as performers, I hope Asian Dream will serve as a launchpad for their future success,” said Glenn Tan, guest judge and Deputy Chairman and Managing Director, Tan Chong International Limited.
