Season 2Edit

ControversyEdit

Many people think that Indonesia's Got Talent (IGT) imitates Indonesia Mencari Bakat (IMB) which aired by Trans TV. Though, actually IGT has been planned since 2008 but held in the year 2010. IMB on Trans TV is a talent show with a similar format to the Got Talent franchise. IGT is owned by FremantleMedia and Indosiar has bought the license to broadcast it officially in Indonesia.

The PrizeEdit

Winner of IGT will receive a cash amount which is Rp 100.000.000,-. In addition, the winner of IGT will be officially signed by the Sony Music and will be sent to the "Got Talent" Asian level then finally to World's Got Talent.
