Is Jay Dee Springbett the New Australian Idol Judge?
Idato says his source told him:
Sony Music talent scout Jay Dee Springbett, Whispering Jack album producer Ross Fraser and former Mushroom Records executive Mark Opitz are the three top contenders for the gig.
Sources say there is a feeling the Australian Idol judging panel – radio personality Ian Dickson and pop singer Marcia Hines – is underpowered and the addition of a senior industry identity would add much-needed gravitas.
This article would appear to have much more legitiamacy than Daily Telegraph – Well I am hoping it does.
Update: The Herald Sun said Brian McFadden has said he will not be the Australian Idol judge and supposedly the front runner is Jay Dee Spring Bett. I found this picture on his MySpace page here.
It would fit in with what Dicko said on The 7pm Project last night where he said the new judge would be young, and he is definitely the youngest out of these three candidates. Springbett Springbett is a former Warner Music consultant who now works for Sony.
