Australia's Got TalentDannii Minogue, Red Symons and Tom Burlinson will return to the judges desk when the bigger and better new season of Australia's Got Talent begins soon on Channel Seven.
Launched at the start of 2007, Australia's Got Talent quickly became Australia’s favourite variety hit, averaging 1.5 million viewers each week.
Grant Denyer will again host the nationwide talent search – anyone with any talent can enter - with acts lining up for a chance of the taking out prize money of $250,000 and says:
‘I can’t wait to see this years discovery line up to face the warmth of Dannii, the experience of Tom and the sharp tongue of one very tough Red Symons all for an amazingly lucrative prize pool. If a bloke who blows a gum leaf to John Lennon can make it to last year’s Grand Final then everybody’s got a chance and that’s what I love about the show!’
This year, the three judges will decide who’s got talent – and who hasn’t - in front of a massive live theatre audience – before the semi-finals begin and Australia helps decide who has enough talent to win the coveted competition.
Last year, Melbourne child singing sensation Bonnie Anderson impressed the judges and the viewers with her knock-out vocal performance, and took home the top prize.
This year, the lure of fame and fortune has more acts lining up to audition - more diverse than the last series – ranging from some amazing, and not so amazing, vocal performances and musicians of all age groups; to dance troupes of varying capabilities; fire breathers; a wood chopper; cheerleaders; contortionists…there is something for everyone in the new series.
There’s even a Kylie impersonator – will Dannii think she’s good enough to go through to the next round?
Dannii – who just returned from the UK where she was a judge on the hugely successful series The X Factor, sitting alongside Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne, is excited about the new series of AUSTRALIA’S GOT TALENT:
‘There is no way I could have believed that this show could get any crazier,’ said Dannii.
‘The talent is world class and the diversity is unlike any other show on Australian TV. Make no mistake, the competition will be fierce! ‘
AUSTRALIA'S GOT TALENT returns soon to Seven.
