Taking the stage in camouflage costumes, the Manila-based dance crew impressed all four judges of the competition, which is hosted by Filipinos Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez.

Grammy-winning record producer David Foster, Indonesian superstar Anggun, former F4 member and Taiwanese actor-pop singer Vaness Wu, and former Spice Girls member Melanie C, as well as the show's studio audience, gave the group of 16 to 23-year-old students a standing ovation after their performance.

Melanie told the Junior New System:

Do you know one of the things that I love about that? So often we see a dance group and there's a couple of people, that might be a couple of weak link, even if it just is in their faces. Every one of you is equally brillant!"

Vaness, who was obviously amazed with what the group did, said:

You guys have the power moves. You guys have the attitude. You guys had the flair and it was just very unique in the sense that you were very original in what you guys did. So great job! Mabuhay!"

Anggun had a lengthy comment as she voiced out her impressions for Junior New System, saying:

I like the fact that when you came into the stage, you're all shy... and then the music started, then you danced and you were powerful, you were fierce... and then the music changed, then you became something else... and then it was funny and it was sweet and cute... and there was a lot of things and I loved it so much!"

Foster kept it short but gave the group a very inspiring message. He said:

Junior New System, Asia's Got Talent has been looking for you! There's not an act in America, from Beyoncé on down, that wouldn't love to have you guys behind her."
