The production team of Super Star also adopted an innovative selection mechanism called the “Athletes’ Village.”

Contestants who pass the pre-selection stage and the semi-final would be put together for a series of vocal training sessions. Only a select few are selected to join the competition and battle for the crown.

While other programs are working to stay relevant in the cutthroat television industry, Asian Idol Group Competition’s stringent contest regulations to only accept groups of performers has seen its ratings fall. As a result, it might be canceled after the second season.
