Australia’s Got Amazing Talent On Seven Soon

Australia’s Got Amazing Talent should be called Channel Seven in milking this year’s success of Australia’s Got Talent, which out rated Masterchef Australia this year.

It is a best of show of AGT from the last five years. Chances of me watching it is low, however a few of my readers maybe.

The press release states (yes I know lazy blogging):

Channel Seven’s Australia’s Got Talent has been the nation’s number one variety show for five years, and to celebrate host Grant Denyer is taking us on a look back at all the weird and wonderful performances in Australia’s Got Amazing Talent.

Over the years the time-slot has changed… the set changed… even some of the judges changed… but the one thing that has remained the same is that Australia does indeed have talent.

The nation’s largest talent quest has travelled to every corner of the country, unearthing stars and kick-starting the careers of some of Australia’s biggest names in entertainment, from Justice Crew to Mark Vincent. Over four million Australians watched 14-year-old schoolboy Jack Vidgen take out the $250,000 grand final prize this year.

Plenty of programs might call themselves ‘variety shows’ but none can match the extraordinary diversity of Australia’s Got Talent. There are the customary singers, dancers and all that jazz, but Australia’s Got Talent is also responsible for some of the most bizarre and jaw-dropping TV moments the country has seen – from contortionists, acrobats and yodelers to sword swallowers and even a spoon player. Then there’s that last category that can only be labeled as ‘Miscellaneous’ (looking at you, Watermelon Man).

Australia’s Got Amazing Talent will revel in the memorable moments from the first five series, including all the antics and acerbic comments from judges Dannii Minogue, Red Symons, Tom Burlinson, Kyle Sandilands and Brian McFadden. And it’s coming soon to Channel Seven.

I watched all the series and for the most part enjoyed it. I think it’s all too recent to do a ‘whatever happened to’ so it could be a ‘this one is dead but wasn’t it fun’.
If it isn’t the latter that’s what they’ll end up with by flogging a good thing.

The glowing press release has me in stitches. I’ve never heard of Justice Crew or Mark Vincent.

I’ve watched it all….the US version is sensational with always acts that literally make you go wow.
The aussie version is barely passable….Mark Vincent playing to RSL’s, Justice Crew the odd festival, Bonnie Anderson did nothing…can’t even remember the last couple…Jack Pidgeon oh thats right..average kid who now think he’s a superstar sans false teeth
