The World Taekwondo Demonstration Team impressed the judges at Italia’s Got Talent audition, as judge Mara Maionchi secured the team’s automatic place in the final by pressing the golden buzzer.
The Demonstration Team wowed the 2,000 spectators that filled the theater, who showed their appreciation and excitement at the mastery of the power and skill of the taekwondo athletes.
All the judges were enthralled by the sheer talent of the team, who first auditioned for the reality TV series in September last year. The audience as well as the judges gave the Demonstration Team a standing ovation.
Maionchi, who is an Italian record producer, was so impressed that she pressed the golden buzzer to ensure the Demonstration Team were one of the twelve finalists in the competition.
The World Taekwondo Demonstration Team was first approached by the Federazione Italiana Taekwondo about participating in the Italia’s Got Talent competition, after an impressive display at the Roma 2019 World Taekwondo Grand Prix last year.
Italia’s Got Talent is one of Italy’s most popular reality contests. Now in its tenth season, the show is viewed by millions of people around the world each week.
In their performance, the World Taekwondo Demonstration Team proudly represented taekwondo and showed that taekwondo is not just a sport for competition, but an exciting and captivating discipline.
The preliminary rounds of the competition were filmed last September in Avellino, Italy, but recently aired to a global audience.
The Italia’s Got Talent final will be held in Rome on March 6, 2020, with a €100,000 grand prize and the title Italia’s Got Talent champion.
