Abu Dhabi will be hosting a wealth of international talent as the winners and runners-up from various television talent shows from around the world prepare to perform in front of shoppers at Marina Mall.
The show includes singers, dancers, acrobats, an illusionist, an impressionist and a ventriloquist, all of whom have been invited to perform at the mall in a Got Talent Live event.
The acts from the US, the UK, Ukraine, Romania and France will be held during two 45-minute daily shows at 4.30pm and 7.30pm, during the week of Jan 14 to 20.
Among the acts will be America's Got Talent 2013 winner Kenichi Ebina. The Japanese artist won fans over with his impressive performance that combined acting and storytelling with different dance moves.
Britain's Got Talent 2017 runner-up Issy Simpson will also be in town. The young magician impressed judges with her tricks, which were inspired by her grandfather, who was a professional illusionist.
Also performing will be the 2014 winner of Ukraine's Got Talent Gennady Tkachenko-Papizh, who can imitate the sound of many birds and animals, as well as 2016's Romania's Got Talent winner Laura Bretan. The young opera singer also finished in the top 10 in 2016 America's Got Talent.
The dancing stars of the 'Got Talent Live' show will literally raise the roof at Marina Mall, led by circus performer Tatiana Kundik, from 2014's Ukraine's Got Talent.
Her slack-wire act will be complemented by OK WorldWide. The group of highly skilled free runners and hip-hop dancers made it to the semi-final of the 9th season of Britain's Got Talent in 2015.
Rounding out the performers will be France's Got Talent 2017's Florent & Justin, an inspirational dance duo; and Shawn Chua, a ventriloquist from Singapore who participated in Asia's Got Talent in 2015.
Standing room at the show is free of charge, while seated tickets start at Dh10 and VIP seats at Dh25. Tickets will be available from the Marina Mall Customer Service Desk from January 11, with all proceeds going to a local charity
